World Expo 2010 Shanghai, China
The 2010 World Exposition has attracted 44 million visitors to Shanghai, China (as of August 24, 2010), generating a revenue of more than 11 billion RMB (1.6 billion US Dollars). The Expo hosts 92 national pavilions, 5 central theme pavilions, and 18 corporate pavilions.
While the interaction between cultures is the focal point of the Expo, as it is with every World Expo, science also plays a major role in the 2010 Expo. The theme of this year’s exposition is “Better City – Better Life,” which focuses on the different aspects of urban development. The importance of science in exploring urban development is displayed in pavilions such as the Pavilion of World Water Council, the Pavilion of World Wide Fund for Nature, the Space Pavilion, the Aviation Pavilion, and the Cisco Pavilion. Below is the highlight of each pavilion.
