A very well thought out academic proposal submitted by the "Expo 2017 team." It is a proposal for Montréal to host another world's fair in 2017.
Copies of the proposal are available to read in French and English. Click on the language of your choice for more details.
The "Expo 2017" website was
officially launched on May 07, 2007.
Citizens of Montréal and residents across Canada wishing to support the

A new organization takes aim at preserving the legacy of Expo 67 including artefacts and to recall its lessons and benefits from the event.
The Expo 67 Foundation was officially launched on May 29, 2010. Click on the logo to enter their website.
Canada will be participating at the Shanghai China World Exposition to be held from May 1 to October 31, 2010.
The logo design (the middle drawing in the above illustration) depicts "the image of three people - you, me, him/her holding hands together, symbolizes the big family of mankind" writes the Shanghai World Exposition website.
Coming off of their highly successful Beijing 2008 Summer Olympic Games, no doubt China has raised the bar very high on themselves. One can expect that the Chinese will attempt to equal or surpass the accomplishments of Expo 67. Organizers are expecting 200 participants and 70 million visitors to their world exposition!
