@FExpo88 Not necessarily. Australia could still land Expo 2017, which would only be a 29 year gap.

North American world's fair gap increases to at least 36 years: http://t.co/2zQ8z8Xh

With no North American bids for Expo 2020, the soonest a world's fair could be held would be 2022... 36 yrs since Vancouver's Expo '86.

RT @2020WorldsFair Sadly, dreams for a San Francisco bay area world's fair in 2020 are dead. 2025 anyone?

Last minute 5th bid for Expo 2020: Dubai, but no Silicon Valley or Houston: http://t.co/Yu9To2Xg (in Turkish)

The bidding for Expo 2017 is still open until 10 Dec 2011. So far, it's Belgium vs. Kazakhstan for the smaller 3-month "recognized" expo.

02 November 2011: Today is the deadline to bid for a world's fair in 2020: It is Brazil vs. Russia vs. Thailand vs. Turkey. #Expo2020
