The theme from Sao Paulo seems very formal to me while Dubai's video it's only a show off o the huge things that the city has instead of showing a true theme and the legacy of the expo.

Emporis is extremely outdated.

Izmir's pop. is 4 mil and most of its buildings are not even on the list.

This list does not consider the metropolitan area, only the city itself.

That does not apply to Dubai. The state of Dubai is close to 4,000 sq kilometres in size, but the city itself is about 350-400 sq kilometres in size. As for the building count, Dubai has thousands of buildings, not just 629

Top think-tank picks Dubai as favourite to win Expo 2020

Expo 2020 revenues expected to reach $37 billion
By Wam
Published Tuesday, March 26, 2013

The London-based International Centre for Development Studies stated that the city of Dubai has more competitive advantages than other cities competing on hosting Expo 2020.

The report explained that the hosting of Expo 2020 in Dubai will have great economic impacts on the Gulf States and the whole region.


.......


The report shows that the city of Sao Paulo in Brazil is Dubai biggest rivals to host Expo 2020. Sao Paulo which has 20 million people constitutes 12% of the total GDP of Brazil. But the city has only 40 thousand hotel rooms, which is not enough when compared with the demand growing at a rate of 10% on an annual basis. Sao Paulo is also suffering from a financial deficit estimated to $19 billion annually and this could affect the provision of adequate support for the event.

The Russian city of Yekaterinburg, which has allocated more space to host the exhibition up to 587 hectares, is expected to attract nearly 45 million visitors in the period between April to October 2020. But the city, according to the report, does not have the appropriate infrastructures which make it able to host the event.

The report shows that Izmir, which is largest city in Turkey and home to nearly 4 million people, needs nearly $ 50 billion to support infrastructure and suffers from high unemployment levels reached 16.5% with no jobs to absorb the migrant workers.

The city of Ayutthaya in Thailand is expected to attract nearly 200 thousand visitors a day in 2020 with a return of $2.06 billion.

But the city, which plans to spend $6 billion to support infrastructure, has only three thousand hotel rooms. This figure raises serious doubts about Ayutthaya’s ability to host Expo 2020 especially because the city was unable to secure the Indoor Football Cup last year.

So, you don't know a lot about Ekaterinburg. This sad state of affairs, though easily explainable (the city was closed to all foreigners without exeption for quite a long period of time), is not quite as desperate as it seems, moreover it is not desperate even a bit, when knowing how fast a city can be made something out of nothing in the eyes of the world... Of which kind of sudden change we have multiple examples even in the past few decades...
For those who are ready to open their eyes to the world here's a video that can make you forget a little bit more you didn't know the city:
