It’s the 160th anniversary of the first World Fair held at The Crystal Palace in Hyde Park, London. And Google is celebrating that event which happened in 1851 today with their own Google doodle below.
Entitled, “Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations”, the event was an initiative by Prince Albert, the husband of Queen Victoria and is said to be the very first international exhibition of manufactured products.
And since then, many other World Fairs and similarly, Trade Expositions were held throughout the globe in numerous countries. The spirit of commerce and international business relations has been strengthened because of the foundations that World Expos have laid.
