It’s hard to oversell the importance of the World’s Fair. Originally conceived as a trade expo, the event has come to represent a benchmark in human progress. Nations come together to display their latest achievements in technology, industry, and culture, as well as to imagine a brighter future together. World-altering technology like the telephone, IMAX movies, and touch screens have all debuted to the public at the World’s Fair. Now a group of ambitious citizens wants to bring the Fair to Los Angeles to give the city a chance to shine in the global spotlight.
The United States hasn’t played host to a World’s Fair since 1984 and it’s high time that changed. An IndieGoGo campaign launched on Monday aims to change that by raising $100,000 to support the city’s bid to win the fair. The group’s founders describe themselves as “superhero agents of change with seriously impressive track records” as well as “action-oriented visionaries who know LAWF will position L.A. as a future-focused city that all Angelenos can take pride in.” It’s a bold vision for the future of a city that’s already a cultural melting pot and the home to America’s globe-spanning media and entertainment industry.
The group behind the push for the L.A. Worlds Fair bid already has a plan in place for the infrastructure that would be required to host a global event. A video shows the location of the planned fair Pavillion and gives viewers a sense of the scale of the project.
