World's Fair Locations

A Worlds Fair, or "Expo", is the third largest event in the world in terms of economic and cultural impact, after the FIFA World Cup and the Olympic Games. They have been organized for more than one and a half centuries - longer than both the (modern) Olympic Games and the World Cup. The first Expo was held in The Crystal Palace in Hyde Park, London, in 1851 under the title “Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations”. It influenced the development of several aspects of society including art and design education, international trade and relations, and even tourism.
