Australia is soon to commence recruitment for its Pavilion at Expo 2012, with an announcement to be made in the next week.
This is an exciting phase in the development of Australia's representation at Yeosu, which according to some sources, plans to be 'the best Pavilion' at Expo 2012.
Also in related news, Think! OTS Media, the creative agency behind Australia's Pavilion at Aichi 2005, and also Shanghai 2010, has been appointed as creative agency for Australia at Yeosu 2012.
Here's a note from the Think! OTS Media blog, with regards to their appointment:
And here's a Press Release from the Expo 2012 website with regards to a visit by Australia Pavilion officials in August to the Yeosu Organising Committee. In the Press Release, Mr Kevin Nixon is named as the Pavilion Director:
In another note, we finish with this photograph from the Foundation Expo '88 vault, of Executive Director John McGregor at his desk at the Press Center of the Taejon International Exposition of Korea of 1993, Korea's first and most previous World Exposition. The Executive Director was employed as an English-language Press Writer by the Organising Committee of the Fair, and covered daily events such as National Days, visiting dignitaries, and general Exposition events. This was the Executive Director's third World Exposition engagement, after working for Japan at Brisbane's World Expo '88, and Spain, for the Universal Exposition of Seville 1992.
Foundation Expo '88 hopes to - one way or another - have another go at working for Korea - or Australia - at this next Expo in Korea! Keep tuned to this space for more information.
