When are World Expos held?


Every five years the winning country / city gets a unique opportunity to showcase the very best their country has to offer. The previous exhibition staged by China / Shanghai in 2010 was significant in the history of World Expos as it was the first registered World Expo in a developing country at that time. Germany / Hanover took centre stage as the first host of a World Expo in the 21st century. It was successfully followed by Japan / Aichi in 2005.

The forthcoming World Expos will be hosted by Italy / Milan in 2015 and United Arab Emirates / Dubai in 2020. The Middle Eastern nation is already assuring the global community of it’s intention to create a truly transformative event.
