Brazil already has the world cup, so they will give Dubai the chance to stage this world event

^ But Dubai is much hotter and less tolerant of women's rights, foreigners and the LGBT community. Oh and they (probably) rely only on the bid-money.

Dubai is the asian's elysion.

SP is a more important city and deserves to win (although we have already got World Cup and Olympics this decade).

They will win, of course. They are the richest,most famous and most safe city. I bet the planet Jupiter for this.
Not the richest.. Abu Dhabi is richer.. they helped bail out Dubai during the economic downturn.. Thats one of the reasons, Dubai Renamed Burj Dubai to Burj Khalifa (Khalifa is the sheikh of Abu Dhabi)

Its quite logic that the people of Brazil want Sao Paulo to win. All the people who Support Sao Paulo in this forum are Brazilians.
If you are a truly skyscraper fan you will want Dubai to win, it will boost the money and they will be able to revive enormous projects like Dubailand, or the Waterfront. They have already anounced that if Dubai win, they will revive Palm Jebel Ali.

I think why more ppl support Dubai is that their skyscrapers are newer and shinier.. most of those tall buildings were only built in the past 10-15 years... prior to that, dubai had only few tall buildings and the palms were not yet built.

Dubai is just a piece of land in a desert with a bunch of skyscrapers in it. It's boring and hot there. Ekaterinburg will win.
Just can't understand why people like dubai so much!

No, many people here in Brazil will not support the Expo 2020, you really don't know what you're talking about. But they won't support because they believe that the government has other social priorities, without being able to realize the important social changes that Expo 2020 can do for Pirituba.

I don't care about Dubai skyscrapers, I live in São Paulo and I really know that skyscrapers are not everything if you have lack of proper infrastructure and strong social questions to be solved. Dubai has its own pride, for sure, but everytime we touch human matters here, people prefer to say that São Paulo is a dangerous city, that São Paulo is a ugly place and that we already have the FIFA World Cup, this is why I insist: we are forgetting really important aspects related the way that Dubai's society works in terms of equality and human rights.

The São Paulo's proposal is really nice. You should analyze more aspects before start to complain. Expo 2020 is not just about big skyscrapers and projects. Money may change this, unfortunately, what is unfair not only for Brazil.

I think people are seeing the Expo 2020 by the wrong aspect, this is why Dubai is winning the bid.

Ekaterinburg is just a piece of land in a forest with one or two skyscrapers in it. It's boring and hot in summer and cold in winter. Dubai will win.

I would not consider Ekaterinburg seriously.
I'm for Dubai. It's a wonder that they they were able to build such a great city in an unfriendly desert for several decades

Ugh, read again i'm not comparing. Its just the reality that with the right projects and management Barcelona became a much famous and rich city with the olympics, same can happen with Izmir too.
