Yekaterinburg to bid for EXPO 2020
A view of Yekaterinburg

Yekaterinburg is to be nominated to host the EXPO 2020 World Exhibition. The city has got priority over Nizhny Novgorod.

Yekaterinburg was chosen mostly due to its location on the border between Europe and Asia, well-developed infrastructure and the availability of hotels.  The city's possible role in hosting of the 2018 Soccer World Cup promises good preparation as well.

If the bid is successful it will be the first time Russia has earned the right to host a World Expo. Moscow was a candidate city for the 2010 fair, but lost out to Shanghai.

Since London hosted the first World Trade Fair in 1851 the events has taken place 46 times.
