The Expo welcomed over 73 million visitors, a record number in the more than 160-year history of the World Expo. The subject was “Better City, Better Life”, a call for improving our cities through well-considered urban planning and sustainable development.

The Belgian-EU Pavilion welcomed approximately 6 million visitors. An online survey of visitors was conducted in the Pavilion, covering visitor profiles, reactions to the Pavilion, knowledge of Belgium and of Belgian participation in Expo Shanghai 2010.
