World's fair

World's Fair, World Fair, Universal Exposition, and World Expo (expo short for "exposition"), are names given to various large public exhibitions held in different parts of the world. The first Expo was held in The Crystal Palace in Hyde Park, London, United Kingdom in 1851 under the title "Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations". "The Great Exhibition", as it is often called, was an idea of Prince Albert, Queen Victoria's husband, and was the first international exhibition of manufactured products. As such, it influenced the development of several aspects of society including art and design education, international trade and relations, and even tourism. Also, it was the precedent for the many international exhibitions, later called "World's Fairs", which were subsequently held to the present day.
In Acapulco, New Spain (Mexico), annual fairs took place for several centuries where countries from Asia exhibited their products brought to the New World by the Spanish Royal Navy Nao de China.

The main attractions at World's Fairs are the national pavilions, created by participating countries. At Expo 2000 Hannover, where countries created their own architecture, the average pavilion investment was around €13 million. Given these costs, governments are sometimes skeptical about participation as benefits are often assumed not to outweigh the costs. Tangible effects are difficult to measure; however, an independent study for the Dutch pavilion at Expo 2000 estimated the pavilion (which cost around €35 million) generated around €350 million of potential revenues for the Dutch economy. It also identified several key success factors for world exposition pavilions in general.
Since the entering into force of the 1928 Convention relating to International Exhibitions, the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE; English: International Exhibitions Bureau) has served as an international sanctioning body. BIE-approved fairs are divided into a number of types: universal, international or specialized. They usually last between three weeks and six months.

World’s Fair exposition anniversary celebrated with Google doodle

Today's Google doodle celebrating the anniversary of the first World's Fair

The 160th anniversary of the World’s Fair exposition has today been celebrated with a Google doodle.

The first expo opened on 1 May 1851, with The Great Exhibition organised in Hyde Park’s Crystal Palace after an idea by Queen Victoria’s husband Prince Albert.

And it is this Expo, officially titled the Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations, which is reflected in the doodle with the arched glass roof of the palace central to the image.

With industrialisation ongoing, the exhibition was organised to celebrate modern technology and design.

Inventor and civil servant Sir Henry Cole, Francis Henry, artist and museum curator George Wallis, politician Charles Dilke and other members of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce helped Prince Albert turn his idea into reality.

Britain’s exhibits were joined in the exposition by items from colonies including Australia, New Zealand and India, and also the likes of Denmark, France and Switzerland.

Inventions on display included an early voting machine and a forerunner of the fax machine.

And visitors could also marvel at the Koh-i-noor – at the time the world’s biggest known diamond.

The Crystal Palace which housed the exhibition was built especially for the show, which included so-called trophy exhibits like art and raw materials from colonies, as well as scientific instruments, technology and engineering feats.
