Agree or not, Dubai is the strongest candidate in this bid.

Strongest candidate by influence (aka money), not by own merit.

Well i guess everybody has their favorite cities. But the important reason that they might think about Sao Paulo because of the protest of all of these events. Although this is showing a country becoming a developed country but who wants a civil war in an important country in the world because of a game. They would probably think more about Sao Paulo instead of justing saying yes.

Dubai and Izmir has really good chance because a lot of people know Dubai now and it isn't a forced muslim country like Saudi and Yemen. And since turkey lost the bid for olympics so, I would go to Turkey and UAE

Following your logic in thinking only in protests, Izmir would not have chances, since Turkey also had major protests this year

I hardly think Izmir will win. The expo always has been located in a famous, rich city.
Hardly anyone know Izmir. And also, Turkey isn't a secure country now.

If Dubai is not winning, then i am the president of the universe

They will win, of course. They are the richest,most famous and most safe city. I bet the planet Jupiter for this.

Civil war? What kind of biased press are you reading?

Expo would be a perfect chance to bring Izmir to a next level, remember Barcelona 92 Olympics?
As for the security i don't think any candidates are really perfect.

Are you comparing Barcelona with Izmir? I have visited Barcelona many times, and it has always been a very famous city and much richer than Izmir.
Even is in the top 10 of the most visited cities.
In terms of security Turkey and Brazil aren't so safe, but in Dubai almost never are news of delincuency, and in Sao Paulo for example, every day.

And São Paulo don't have daily news about slavery and racism. Moreover, unlike Dubai, São Paulo has guaranteed human rights, for women, foreigners and the LGBT community. Also we don't have wars and humanitarian crises in countries that are practically neighbors.

Undoubtedly, Dubai would be an incredible host city to the expo, but Sao Paulo should not be underestimated.
