This choice has nothing to do with the cities and their imaginary "fitness" to host the event, it is all about the countries and their ability to protect their own interests, to impose their will on other countries. The real question is not "which city is the best" or "in what city are there more people knowing about their city's candidacy and supporting it" - that's why "go Sao Paulo! Go Dubai! or go Bangkok!" kind of phrasing can't help. Not even a tiny bit. - the question is who would be ready to spend: money as well as power. The first one to bribe, the second one to f*ck the brains. I think that luckily at the moment Russia has more then the others of both the money and the power to help someone make the right decision.
Sorry. :-) we deserve getting the price more than anybody else of you.

I even have this list of "who deserve and who don't":

1. Russia - deserves (big and powerful)
2. Brazil - deserves (big and powerful)

3. Turkey - donno (not so big and not so powerful)

4. Thailand - doesn't deserve (not so big and most unpowerful)
5. Dubai - doesn't deserve (tiny but rather powerful than not)

Only one thing may stop Russia: The expo in Russia is not a Putin's project, it is Medvedev's one and if Putin won't take the reins in his hands and try to do sth to help Medvedev... we're f*cked.

I don't think ekaterinburg will win, i think sao paulo has got more chances.
Personally i think Dubai has got more chances to win than ekaterinburg, because dubai is a very big city and has got so many hotels. And its the seventh most visited city in the world... Ekatrinburg its not very known and it doesn't atrract many people in the expo...
If Moscow participate they would have a good chance.

I agree. If Moscow was candidate city it could win. But Ekateringburg isn't as highly developed as Dubai for example. And it also doesn't depend on country. It depends on city. UAE isn't big and powerful country, but Dubai is one of the greates cities in the world... I think that Dubai base also more chanses than São Paulo because it has very good location. It is between Africa, Europe and Asia. Great place for EXPO!

Expo 2020: UAE can make it, says Clinton

Staff Reporter / 11 April 2013


Clinton reading a copy of My Vision, which depicts Shaikh Mohammed’s views and personal experiences and his positive outlook on the country and its people. — Wam


Fomer US president Bill Clinton said on Wednesday that the UAE, an inspiration to many countries in the Middle East, is in a strong position to win the bid for Expo 2020.

Kicking off an open session at the American University in Dubai, Clinton lauded Dubai’s resilience to the economic crisis. “Places that have come back from the tough economic crisis the best and the quickest are the ones which have an operative model which creates cooperation across all sectors of society, races, religions and ethnic groups, where people find a way to celebrate and are proud of their differences and they work together in shared responsibility,” he said.

“That’s what Dubai and the UAE represent and I think you are in a strong position to win the bid for Expo 2020 because Dubai’s model of shared prosperity is more important today than ever and an inspiration to many countries in the Middle East,” said the former president.

Very good analysis, but let me show you a few things...

In terms of money, Brazil is right ahead of Russia, not just because of the economy's size, but also because the country attract more invesments and inflows of FDI, with a stable democracy and very open and diverse society.

In terms of influence Russia is ahead of Brazil, it's a powerhouse in the UN and very influent in the Middle East, some parts of Europe and Asia, but Brazil is very influent in Latin America, Africa and has more friendly relations with North America and Europeans countries.

I'll add one important issue: the know-how.

Brazil will host a World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016.

Russia has the Winter Olympics in 2014 and the World Cup in 2018.

In my opinion it's a hard competition between those countries, but if you look to the main issue: the city that will host, São Paulo is more than Ekateringburg.

No sympathy for Dubai doing it and showing off for the sake of it, again.

Sao Paulo should make it!

What I love the most in the São Paulo design plans are how it values the nature which already exists in the site. A picture from Google Earth showing it today, covered in green (and next to the highest point in the state, the Jaraguá peak, also covered in forest):

I think São Paulo is a great choice for the Expo. It is time for Brazil to show the world what is the best it has, and it is not the soccer and beaches, it is the cultural diversity and it is nature.
The values involved in these are essential to the future of the planet and are values that should be spread worldwide, it is the perfect opportunity to do so.
