Southwest Florida Chapter Luncheon Explores World Expo Experiences, Prepares Members for Osaka 2025

Larry and Rosanne Francis at the Uzbekistan Pavilion

The Southwest Florida TCC Chapter gathered for lunch in March 2024, focusing on insights into the World Expo. Larry and Rosanne Francis shared their wealth of knowledge and tips gleaned from their past Expo experiences, particularly highlighting the 2020 (really 2021) Dubai Expo. Many members expressed their intent to attend the next World Expo in Osaka, Japan, in 2025.

Key Tips for Expo Visits:

  • Allocate more time than anticipated to fully explore the event.
  • Experience both day and night visits to witness captivating light displays in various pavilions.
  • Engage with fellow visitors to uncover hidden gems and highlights, as information can sometimes be scarce.
  • We delved into specifics such as timing and costs associated with the 2025 Expo. While Dubai offered certain perks for seniors that might not be replicated in Osaka, proactive planning is advised to navigate potential long queues in Japan.

Early-bird tickets for the Expo 2025 in Osaka are now available until October. Prices are $40 and under depending on which months you plan to attend. Reservations for specific dates and pavilions will not be available until later.

The conversation extended beyond the Expo, with lively discussions about recent travel experiences. Anne Taylor shared her recent adventures from the TCC New York Chapter trip to Senegal, which sounded like a lot of fun. Like Anne, many have recently explored or are gearing up for trips to West Africa. We’re looking forward to organizing a meeting where we can collectively delve into this region’s wonders soon.
