Nacre Posted January 21, 2018 Report Share Posted January 21, 2018 (edited) The World's Fair is also really easy to screw up badly. Paris has lost enormous sums of l'argent in the past on expositions. There is a lot more freedom in designing an expo than the Olympics, which is good news for cities with cunning and wise politicians, but awful news for the majority of cities which have politicians who don't know much about either economics or urban planning. I will say, though, that Seattle's two Expos both made a profit and created the two best districts in the city. Barcelona also couldn't have hosted the Olympics without the public infrastructure from its two Expos. Vancouver probably couldn't host the winter games without the infrastructure from its Expo either. With good legacy planning an Expo can be better for a city than the Olympic Games.
