Shanghai Expo

Shanghai Expo

Shanghai made world headlines in 2010 when it hosted the Shanghai Expo, a major world exhibition that attracted over 73 million visitors. Today, visitors can still see parts of the Expo in Shanghai, in its lively Pudong district.

Shanghai Expo 2010

The Shanghai Expo was the first world trade fair of its kind since 1992. 192 countries from around the world participated, including France, the UK, the USA, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Brazil, India and many more. Another 50 international organisations, including the UN and the World Bank, took part.

Each country and organisation hosted their own pavilion at the Expo, designed to showcase aspects of the participant’s cultural and design history. The event took place over 184 days and welcomed over 73 million people. Today, visitors in Shanghai can still explore the Expo Axis, the event’s central building. This membranous roof is the largest of its kind in the world, and looks spectacular when lit up at night.

The Expo Axis is on the Pudong side of Shanghai. In Puxi, a World Expo Museum is currently under construction. It will showcase exhibits donated by the event’s global participants.

Shanghai New International Expo Centre

Since 2010, Shanghai has re-established itself as a major world centre for conferences and trade fairs. The Shanghai New International Expo Centre is one of the newest trade fair venues in the city. Located in the heart of Pudong, the Expo Centre now hosts over 70 trade fairs and exhibitions annually.

Visitors at the Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel will enjoy direct underground access from our hotel to the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.
