We'd love to get to know you better. Take a moment to say hi to the community in the comments.
Hello! Todd Duncan here!
My interest in expos was formed at an early age, when I came across a 1964-65 New York World's Fair playset at my local five & dime (in Kansas!) I just had to have it!
Later, I became more interested in that Expo, due to its connection with Disney. (I've worked for The Walt Disney Company for almost 35 years). Sadly, I was too economically challenged to visit any of the last Expos here in North America, but since I've been to Aichi, Shanghai, Milan, and Dubai. I'm already planning my trip to Osaka, and I really hope Minneapolis wins their bid for 2027! I also collect memorabilia from our USA/Canada expos back to 1939. I love Guide Books! There is NOTHING to compare to a World Expo. They're always enlightening, educational and most of all fun events, that are all one-of-a-kind. And I swear, the next time I tell someone I'm going to a Worlds Fair (you have to say that in these parts because they have no idea that they haven't been called that in years) and they say "They still have those?" I just may scream. 😉
Welcome Todd! Thank you for joining us and sharing your experience! It would be great if you could share a story about your favorite pieces of memorabilia. Please let us know if you'd like to write a blog post.
Bonjour aux passionnés des expositions ! Je travaille avec César et l'équipe Expomuseum au niveau de la version en français. Je mets également à jour la liste des journées nationales à Expo 2020 Dubaï. Je m'intéresse aux expos depuis mon adolescence, ayant visité plusieurs fois Expo 67 à Montréal. Je visiterai l'expo de Dubaï du 5 au 16 février 2022. Au plaisir de vous faire mes commentaires à mon retour. À bientôt.
I'm Jason Griffing and I work along with César here at Expomuseum.
I am an Expo fanatic and have attended 15 World Expos since my first one in Knoxville Tennessee USA in 1982. I have an interest not only attending Expos but also visiting Expo sites after they have ended to see how the sites develop and/or to see what remains...even ones from earlier in the last century. I also have an interest in architecture and design which is another reason Expos call out to me.
I look forward to meeting all of you here and sharing our enthusiasm about Expos!
