Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: World Expo proposal for Moffett Field (CA)
Moffett a serious contender for World Expo

It appears more and more likely that the World Expo will come to Moffett Field in 2020, along with a new local landmark, tens of millions of visitors and hundreds of thousands of jobs, according to backers of the event at the Bay Area Council.

In what will be a worldwide competition to host the six-month event, spokesman John Grubb said the Bay Area Council (BAC) is confident about Moffett's chances. Grubb said the United States' "most stalwart competitors" so far are Turkey and Thailand, with the possibility that Russia may join the fray as well. Within the U.S. there are efforts to bring it to Minneapolis and Houston, but talks are underway to get World Expo backers in those cities to unite behind Silicon Valley.

There's a long list of other cities and countries where efforts are underway, but most appear don't appear to have heavy backing, Grubb said. "If ever there was a situation where someone could launch a webpage and be taken serious, this is one of them."
