January 7, 2010 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

ShanghaiThere's been a lot of buzz in the press recently about the Shanghai World Expo, taking place from May 1-October 31, 2010. The scheduled event-- the next world's fair-- is expected to draw the largest number of visitors in the history of world's fairs (70 million). As explained by Wikipedia, "the theme of the exposition will be "Better City – Better Life" and signifies Shanghai's new status in the 21st century as a major economic and cultural center. The expo Logo features the Chinese character 世 'world' modified to represent three people together with the 2010 date." The goal of the World Expo 2010? To showcase an enduring example of sustainable and harmonious urban living through its exhibitions, events and forums. This is great year to jet to Shanghai and see what all the fuss is about.
