With the enormous success of Expo 67, Mayor Drapeau announced in October, that the Expo 67 "Man and His World" theme would become a permanent exhibition of cultural diversity. Several countries participated in  the exhibition. In 1968, Prime Minister Trudeau attended the opening ceremony.  With pavilions either being added or transformed, "Man and His World" was attended by 20 million people. In spite of this figure, it was not nearly successful over the years as officials had hoped it would be and so "Man and His World" officially closed in 1981.
