Some people may not know the reason for this joy that we are experiencing and our celebration of this great victory with international, economic and scientific implications for the Kingdom’s status and potential. No people can understand how much the Saudi citizen feels because he is Saudi.
Expo is the exhibition that made history about 170 years ago, and gave humanity many innovations that changed human lives, perhaps the simplest of which are ketchup and ice cream cones, and the greatest of which are computers, mobile phones, ATMs, escalators, and many others. Since the first Expo was held in 1851 at the Crystal Palace in Hyde Park, which was known as the “Great Exhibition” to showcase the latest innovations of the Industrial Revolution, Expos have remained among the largest and most important international events.
At their beginning, international exhibitions adhered to the laws and conditions set by the countries organizing the exhibition until 1928, when the first agreement regulating and caring for international exhibitions was signed in Paris, and from it emerged the International Bureau of Exhibitions, which is responsible for organizing, implementing and applying the agreement and good management of international exhibitions.
Holding these exhibitions is usually an occasion to develop several useful projects for the place in which the exhibition will be held. The most prominent of these projects is the Eiffel Tower, which was specially built to be the entrance to the 1889 Paris Expo, which later became a cultural landmark and a historical symbol for Paris, which hosted it for the second time in 1900, when the Paris Metro was established, witnessed the presence of more than 50 million visitors, and displayed various innovations, including escalators, diesel engines, giant amusement park wheels, and talking movies. The Montreal metro was also built (Expo 1967), and the Lisbon metro was expanded (Expo 1998). Several architectural achievements were created on the occasion of these exhibitions and later became symbols of their countries, such as: the Atomium in Brussels, the Space Needle in Seattle, and the Biosphere in Montreal!
At the Expo called the Centennial Exposition in 1876, which was held in Philadelphia, Alexander Graham Bell displayed the world’s first telephone, and some foods also appeared for the first time, including popcorn and ketchup.
For coffee lovers, the 1906 Milan Exhibition was credited with the discovery of the espresso machine, which contributed to awakening and revitalizing millions of people and workers around the world to this day. The machine also contributed to raising the value of the global coffee market, which amounts to about 374 billion riyals. The 1939 New York World Expo saw the birth of television broadcasting for the public to see for the first time. At the Dubai exhibition, the Saudi pavilion witnessed an unparalleled turnout due to its excellence, and the innovations and inventions presented to the public, in a proactive step towards our success today!
