World's Fair Decision Model

Past research study on the attendance dynamics of the World's Fair and International Expo industry. It was an independent study and development of an economic and international attendance dynamics model concerning the international, horticultural, national, and regional exposition industry. Currently this study is not being used and JPD Econ is not pursuing work in the attendance dynamics or report field.

The model had previously been used to conduct a preliminary attendance dynamics feasibility study for the New York World Expo 2012 promotional committee.

Coming in the future, a web publishing project at, the World's Fair and World Expo database. Info today on past world's fairs to get you a taste for what's hopefully to come.
