Fairs are markets established to develop trade and also promote the developments and innovations that are happening in the world. In course of time, with the increase and diversification of basic needs, markets and fairs have turned into Expo organizations, which consist of “society” based themes. Expo (exposition=sergi), as a World Fair or World Exhibition, was organized from the middle of the 19th century. Expo is organized in different themes by bringing together countries at predetermined time and site for the purpose of exhibiting, publicity, exchanging ideas and establishing commercial links. Expo is officially realized by the International Exhibitions Bureau (Bureau International des Expositions-BIE). Expo is organized in different areas in the World and one of them is Gardening Expo. Gardening Expo has emerged to encourage innovation in the fields of agriculture, horticulture and landscape architecture. Two different institutions are authorized in the organization and exhibition process in Gardening Expo. This is the most important feature that distinguishes Gardening Expo from other Expos. Antalya Expo 2016 is the A1 category Gardening Expo that was first held in Turkey. In this study, it has been given information about development from markets to Expo in the historical process, Expo spatial criteria and properties, Expo 2016 Antalya and contributions to Turkey. The proposals for the sustainability of the 2016 Expo Antalya is given.
