Everything but not Dubai.

Brasil has the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016 so ...

Ayuttthaya would be a great choice, thai tourism has so much to show to the world. But it's a minor city

Yekaterinburg ... nice ice town, but who is it ?

I hope Turkey - Izmir will get it, after the Turkish lose at Euro 2016. It would provide them a big push up to improve their infrastructures. Like that, Turkey won't be eligible for the Olympics at the same year (I hope :P) and Tokyo will host it in 2020 to show to the world that they have survive to the earthquake and they are stronger than ever, and above all this, Paris will be eligible for hosting the Olympics 2024

All the cities are great, but Sao Paulo and Latin America deserves this Expo. The world needs to know us, our culture isn't just samba, beachs, tacos and wines. And for those who really think Sao Paulo is one of the worst cities in south hemisphere, you better search more information, I recommend this threads: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1315333 http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1477444 http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1513032

The world is much more than USA and Europe.

The world is much more than USA and Europe.
There's also China, and considering the best expos are in countries during their rise to power, Changsha would be ideal.

Dubai's Expo online campaign strongest of all 2020 competitors

Thursday, January 10, 2013
7DAYS

Dubai has outdone its Expo 2020 rivals on the web, according to a report released by an independent consultant.

Turkey-based social media specialist Simone Favaro, who conducted research on ‘How candidates use the web for internationalisation’, found that the emirate has the best virtual positioning of all cities bidding to host the Expo.

“Dubai is the most active online with the highest rank on search engine, the largest number of fans and followers on facebook and Twitter,” revealed Favaro.
