World Exposition 2010 Shanghai China

The World Exposition 2010 Shanghai China (Shanghai Expo) will be held at the waterfront area on both sides of Huangpu River in Shanghai from May 1 to October 31, 2010.

Under the main theme 'Better City, Better Life', the Shanghai Expo will provide a platform for participating countries, regions and organisations to share their experiences of urban development, discuss advanced ideas on cities, and explore new approaches to eco-friendly lifestyles and working conditions as well as sustainable development.

Under the main theme are five sub-themes. They are:

  • Blending of diverse cultures in the city
  • Economic prosperity in the city
  • Innovation of science and technology in the city
  • Remodelling of urban communities
  • Rural-urban interaction

The Shanghai Expo will be a great opportunity to explore the full potential for urban living in the 21st century, which is shaping up to be a significant period in urban evolution.

Some 242 countries, cities and international organisations have confirmed to take part in Expo 2010 which is expected to attract 70 million visitors from the Mainland and around the world.

For the first time in World Expo history, the Shanghai Expo will stage the Urban Best Practices Area Exhibition and the Expo Shanghai Online. This will provide different channels for people around the world to explore and share valuable experiences and enhance the theme of the Expo - Better City, Better Life.

Urban Best Practices Area

The Urban Best Practices Area (UBPA) is a 15-hectare site located in Section E of Puxi in the enclosed area of the Expo Site. It comprises two blocks - the south and the north, and provides an opportunity for cities to participate in the World Expo independently.

The UBPA will present original and valuable programmes and practices designed to improve the quality of urban life. It will also act as a platform for the sharing and exchange of experiences in urban construction and development.

The UBPA will be divided into four exhibition fields, namely Livable Cities, Sustainable Urbanisation, Protection and Utilisation of Historical Heritage and Technological Innovation in Built Environment.

Expo Shanghai Online

Expo Shanghai Online (Online Pavilion) is an integral part of the Shanghai Expo and revolutionises the Expo's presentation style. The Online Pavilion will represent the participant's physical pavilion under two categories, the Browsing Pavilion and the Experiencing Pavilion.

Through virtual touring, online visitors can interact with the organiser and the participants on the Internet, even if they are unable to visit the Expo in person.

Expo Shanghai Online is an introductory channel, extension and supplement of the Expo in the form of a website combining 3D exhibitions, events and interactions.
