This touristic travel practice in a large city dates back to the19th century, it accompanies the origins of our modern tourism, while becoming an instrument of geopolitics and tourism marketing of prime importance for the cities and host countries. Exhibits can be seen as an urban lever, but also a means of making our world travel and understand through a system of representation of local and global identities, always offering a showcase of scientific discovery and cultural experience through the national pavilions. These giant events are based on staging and storytelling based on a universal theme that generally questions the concept of sustainable development and the renewed tourist attraction of the destination.
