Expo (short for "exposition", and also known as World Fair and World's Fair) is the name given to various large public exhibitions held since the mid-19th century. They are the third largest event in the world in terms of economic and cultural impact, after the FIFA World Cup and the Olympic Games

So you probably aren't in this world... It has been Expo for a lot of years...
I went to Expo'98 (Lisbon, Portugal) and Expo'08 (Zaragoza, Spain)

Expo's aren't given much coverage outside the host nation, they don't have the impact like they used to
