We are pleased to share with you our plans to bring the World Expo to Ekaterinburg in 2020.
We believe the choice of Ekaterinburg as the host for World Expo 2020 will open up a unique opportunity for the world community to rediscover the city which was laid down by Peter the Great in 1723 as Russia's industrial center. Today, Ekaterinburg is one of Russia’s fastest growing cities with well-developed and diverse economy. It has attracted more investments than any other Russian city. While still a major industrial center, the city is gradually turning into a focal point of “human intellectual capital” thanks to its educational and science resources. The city is also striving to play a pivotal role in innovative development.
Thanks to World Expo 2020 Ekaterinburg may become a venue for intellectual discussions, with its development getting a significant boost, which is fully in line with the goals and objectives of the World Expo movement.
The Expo 2020 theme Global Mind proposed by Russia is an ambitious attempt to explore one of the world’s most impressive phenomena: globalization, its consequences, threats and challenges.

This theme is important for the global community. We all live on the same planet, and promoting human progress for resolving global issues is in everyone's interests.
A polyethnic, multiconfessional and rapidly developing modern country, rich in cultural traditions, Russia is an ideal venue for exchanging opinions and ideas.
On one hand, Expo 2020 will offer its participants the opportunity to express themselves highlighting the advantages of global diversity, and on the other hand it will become a venue for showcasing how various countries’ leading-edge technological breakthroughs are implemented on a global scale.
