EXPO 2000 is the first World Exposition in the close to one-and-a-half centuries’ history of world exhibitions to take place in Germany. It presents at the same time two new features. This World Exposition is not just taking place in Hanover, but all over the world where people are developing ideas for the future and putting them into practice: the concept of global projects is joining together model ideas from all over the world in the presentation, and in this way is taking this World Exposition out into the wider world. Also new is the EXPO 2000 idea of the Thematic Area.
Whereas earlier world expositions concentrated on presenting advances in technology, EXPO 2000 will be concentrating on solutions for the future: solutions for current problems in the environment and development. Under the motto ”Humankind-Nature-Technology – a new world arising”, EXPO 2000 demonstrates in an attractive, factual and entertaining manner, how the major challenges of the 21st century can be met and mastered.
EXPO 2000 takes place from June 1st to October 31st 2000. More than 180 countries have pledged to take part. The organisers are expecting 40 million individual visits. 30,000 people will be working every day while the exposition is open. The grounds cover the 100 hectares (250 acres) Hanover Trade Fair site, and a further 60 hectares (150 acres) newly-developed grounds. At the heart of the exhibition grounds is the EXPO Plaza.
