Students participate in EXPO 2020 flash mob

A large-scale flash mob took place in Oktyabrskaya Square on the morning of March 26 in front of a Sverdlovsk Region Government building.

The flash mob, consisting of approximately 200 first-year college students, was held in order to show support for the World Exhibition EXPO 2020, Ural Business Consulting reports.

The students came together using color light signals and small flags in order to relay the message "We vote for EXPO" to the expo inspection committee.

Participants took part in the activity voluntarily, despite the cold weather and early morning. The students say they feel the event was a success, according to Ural Business Consulting.

Official bids with the BIE Paris for EXPO 2020 have been lodged by Izmir, Turkey; Ayutthaya, Thailand; Yekaterinburg, Russia; Sao Paulo, Brazil and Dubai, UAE.
