exactly. I agree completely. The quality and craftmanship of numerous, numerous buildings in New York is astounding, including the inmense number of historical ones. "Concrete Jungle" does not equate with beauty.

Dubai steps up campaign for 2020 World Expo bid

As Dubai looks to bring World Expo to the region for the first time, the team behind the 2020 bid stepped up its campaign on Tuesday with a series of briefings to various government departments.

The meetings were arranged to bring government entities up to speed on the status of the bid ahead of a national awareness campaign that will start in June. The in-depth briefing offered communications specialists in the Dubai government the necessary insights into the bid, as well as tools with which to promote this national endeavour among a range of stakeholders.

The Dubai government department briefing also comes ahead of the UAE’s upcoming bid presentation to the Bureau International des Expositions, or BIE, General Assembly in Paris on June 11 and 12. BIE is the international organisation responsible for overseeing the calendar, bidding, selection and organisation of the World Expo.

I´d say the same applies to any major megalopolis. It never is "just a concrete jungle", with no natural beauty. Within a short trip from São Paulo you're at the beach; an even shorter one and you're in a deep forest; not to mention the city is almost a lab of architecture of all periods, mainly modernist.

For those who may be interested, there is an official website for the SP2020 campaign here.

In 2008 the Expo was at Zaragoza, Spain.

There is a thread about how it is being changed in an entreprise area here
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...03566&page=204
(and of course there were several ones while the Expo)

If someone want to ask anything about projects, difficults, etc... it was done only 4 years ago and a lot of people could answer questions.

Even if all messages aren't in English, do not hesitate using this language.

I belive in Dubai all the way they really deserve to get the expo its the most culturally diverse of all the cities bidding and it has residents from very many countries.

And Dubai will also bring up an event witch will really be remembered and use alot of money at it. and its also likely that much of the infrastructure created will be used later also for other purposes.

and Dubai also already have the GLobal village which is abit like constant tiny world expo http://www.globalvillage.ae/index.ph...mid=40&lang=en

A senior delegation led by Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman of the Emirates Group, on Sunday left for Paris to make the case for holding the 2020 World Expo in Dubai.

The delegation will make a presentation at a General Assembly of the 160 member nations of the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), the international organisation responsible for overseeing the World Expo events.

The presentation is the second of five opportunities the UAE will have to formally support its bid to the BIE in the lead up to the November 2013 selection, official news agency WAM reported.

UAE promises ‘a very special EXPO 2020’ in Dubai

The United Arab Emirates is geared up to host a very special World EXPO 2020 in Dubai, says Reem Al Hashimi, UAE Minister of State and Managing Director of the Higher Committee for Hosting the World Expo 2020.

.....

Meanwhile, the Secretary General of the (BIE) Vicente Gonzalez Loscertales said Dubai has all what it takes to successfully host EXPO 2020, including the modern and world-class infrastructure, as well as the unique and strategic location. “We look forward to learning more about the UAE project, its vision and its bid campaign for hosting World Expo 2020 in Dubai. It is up to the 160 member states to select the host city for EXPO 2020. There are two success factors here; the technical standards and the ability to convince the 160 voting state that the bid is worth voting for,” he added.
