We are talking about different things here.
Having a World Cup has nothing to do with having an Expo.

And the Expo has absolutely zero to do with needing several stadiums for a World Cup.
FIFA thought Qatar could host it, end of story.

Correction: FIFA thought Qatar could host it...after Qatar slipped FIFA a few bills under the table.

Anyway, Ayutthaya is my favored to win and that's irrespective of who hosted what and when. Yekaterinburg is a WTF? location that will have 100x less visitors than Shanghai. Sao Paulo could host it but given the infrastructure backlog Brazil is having with the World Cup and Olympics, I doubt they'll give it the needed attention to win. Dubai could host it but I'd just prefer Izmir or even more Ayutthaya

Dubai named world’s festival and events city for 2012

DUBAI — The International Festivals and Events Association (IFEA), the world’s leading events trade association, has crowned Dubai as “IFEA World Festival and Event City 2012” in the cities category with a population of more than one million.

This is the second time Dubai won the award that is expected to boost its Expo 2020 bid. Last year, the emirate won in the same category for the Middle East.

i think Sao Paulo deserves it, it will help our 3rd world city to improve and show the world the problems and qualities of this 'emerging multicutural city', besides Sao Paulo is the biggest city in Southern hemisphere and deserve respect!

I think that Dubai must be the chosen one..

1) It has a lot of space for the development (and it does not have to destroy any green or natural area)
2) It is the most international city, they have people from every place of the world and they are used to tourists. Also they have the best equipments (in city transports, airport, hotels).
3) We know that in Dubai miracle's happen and they are able to make the greatest development and to really surprise us! (Since 1990 all the expo's have been the same)
4) They already have marvelous things there like the Masdar city or The World project.
