The exhibition in Vancouver adjoining the conference centre showcased some of the world's premier cities from Canada to Nanjing, and many innovations in urban design for more inclusive cities. Held in a giant exhibition hall larger than a football field, it provided the space needed for informal discussions, side shows, book shows and the latest in urban living. UN-HABITAT's exhibition showcased the history of the agency and provided visitors a unique opportunity to get a first-hand glimpse of life in slums around the world using life-size photographic mock-ups of the homes of poor people. UN-HABITAT is grateful to the City of Vancouver and the Government of Canada, for providing the exhibition space, and for its kind sponsorship of free exhibition facilities for partners from Least Developed Countries. This support contributed to an inclusive display with exhibits of projects, case studies, experiences and best practices from all over the world.
