Expo 2020 will likely represent a first no matter which city wins. If Ayutthaya wins the bid, it would be Thailand’s first world’s fair. If Dubai or Izmir win, it will be the first Middle Eastern expo. Expo 2020 will be the first Russian world’s fair if Ekaterinburg wins. A Sao Paulo victory would make it the first world’s fair in South America and Latin America as well as the first in the Western Hemisphere in 34 years and the first in the Southern Hemisphere in 32 years.
