Expo 2025 will be a "sanctioned" international exposition under the rules of the Bureau International ... Supporters of a Paris bid for 2025 have started an effort.

The 2025 Bid Theme // Creative Reinvention

The 2000-year history of London has been one of constant change. It has grown from a port and river crossing point into a bustling centre of national Government and international commerce. It has been an imperial capital, and a city embracing villages and towns as it grew. It has been home for people in all walks of life, and from all parts of the world. It has led in industrial and scientific innovation, while also enjoying a globally-recognised heritage. Wealth and poverty, old and new, city and suburban rub shoulders. Several times in its past it has fought off disaster and resisted the best efforts of planners to remake it. This is the dynamic, ever-changing city – and its people – that the policies in this plan seek to sustain.”



Every World Expo has a theme, whether it is “Better city, better life” as in Shanghai 2010, or “Feeding the planet, energy for life” in Milan 2015. London though has something very special to say about contemporary city life and the ingredients for success in 21st century urban forms. In particular, it has something to say around the issues of economic resilience and reinvention that are so crucial for success. Whilst growing Asian cities strive to become ‘smart cities’, ‘livable cities’, ‘financial hubs’ or ‘cultural Meccas’, London has managed to achieve all of these through a seemingly organic process of continual reinvention. London’s success is that of a great historic city, regenerating established areas and opening new quarters, founded upon its unswerving openness and nurturing of creative talent and entrepreneurial energy. This bid will use London’s story as the basis for framing an Expo around the potential of human creativity to drive urban success and meet the challenges and opportunities of a global economy. London’s is a city which nurtures creativity and which reinvents itself.

Strategy Group for Houston World’s Fair Recommends 2025 Bid



Houston World’s Fair Inc. has set its sights on 2025. The strategy and planning teams behind the effort have determined that 2025 is a more favorable year to host an International Exposition in our great city.

Years of research, planning, and development by a multitude of local and international organizations support the fact that International Expositions must return to American soil. The Houston committee worked closely with other cities interested in hosting a World's Fair with great success and camaraderie. All the cities reached out to their respective local governments and jointly approached the federal government to show them the amazing value that a World's Fair could bring to our communities and our country.

The good news is that we all succeeded at the local level. In Houston, we not only secured the official support of Mayor Parker, but we were part of the Texas delegation to the Shanghai World's Fair in which the governor and many of our senior leaders saw first hand the impact of an Expo.

Federal legislation was introduced in partnership with the International Relations committee and the Bay Area team. This bill can reactivate the membership of the US in the Bureau of International Expositions (BIE) and position us as a leading candidate for the 2025 Fair.

Houston is moving forward with a head start to 2025.

Houston World's Fair Inc, a 501c3 non-profit corporation, has been going strong for over three years and our teams have laid a solid foundation for a successful bid. The organization has partenred with architecture and urban development team to evaluate numerous sites within Houston that can host the event with lasting economic and cultural benefits.

The organizaiton has also reached out internationally, and has received positive feedback from the BIE for our efforts as well as many prominent city, state, and federal leaders.

The city of Houston has long been at the forefront of innovation and progress. From energy and technology to education and healthcare, Houston has proven itself to be a world leader and the ideal host to a modern World’s Fair. Our city has garnered high-level support and international interest for it’s innovation and global prestige. Civic and business leaders throughout the community stand behind this effort to feature our city on the international stage, and our research and planning shows that Houston is the prime location for the next American World’s Fair.

To do this, we will continue with our regional and international activity on all fronts. This includes redoubling our efforts to push for US membership in the BIE along with the pursuit of financial support from global business leaders and volunteer support from Houston’s diverse and passionate community.

We encourage and appreciate your continued support. This effort has just begun, so please continue to explore and share Houston World’s Fair. The work we are seeing in this community is relevant, inspiring, and undeniable proof that Houston is the ideal location to host the greatest World’s Fair in history.

So, we'll keep on working hard towards the most extraordinary event of our lifetimes: the Houston 2025 Expo. Stay in touch, we’re just getting started!

San Francisco's bid committee needs to check it's facts. The Bid Book for SFO 2025 is full of inaccuracies.

For instance, on the page EXPOS in History...

The first World's Fair was LONDON"s Crystal Palace - 1851. NOT New York's Crystal Palace 1853.

It's called, "research" for a reason!

The grammar is horrible. Mistakes like this will cost you your bid - trust me. I worked for the Expo 86 Corporation for 4 years. North America's last World's Fair was Vancouver's Expo 86 NOT, "The last in the North America" WTF?

World's Fair should ALWAYS be capitalized.

The writer was probably trembling in fear at the thought of going up against London and Paris.

Rotterdam has been working on a bidbook for the expo 2025 for some time now, wanting to host the 2025 expo themed 'Deltas in Transition'. The proposed location for the expo is the M4H innovation district, located in the industrial port area of Rotterdam. This district already has good connections to public transport by tram and subway and lies close to the city center. The city center as well will host some of the expo activities.

And San Fransisco isn't? Remember San Bernindo? And besides terrorism, the US has four times as much crime as France or the UK.
