An invitation by the speaker to attend the World Exposition in Vancouver in its centennial year, taking place between May 2 and October 13, 1986. A short review of The 1986 World Exposition being placed in British Columbia. Other world expositions, and the uniqueness of this one. What a world exposition is and what it does. A review of both universal and specialized world expositions. Why the 1986 World Exposition is receiving such strong international support: Canada's reputation as a host, (as established by Expo 67 in Montreal), and the theme of transportation and communications. A description of several important programmes developed for this theme. The agenda of the exposition, with specific dates and programmes. Goals met.
