  1. Hi there, My name is John McGregor and I run a Foundation for Brisbane's World Expo '88, led by the website at http://www.foundationexpo88.org/ After working at Brisbane's Expo '88, and Seville's Expo 92, I got a job as an English language Press Writer for the Press Center at the Taejon International Exposition of 1993 - one of only a few foreigners employed by the Taejon International Exposition Authority. I had a great time, and have uploaded a few words about my experiences and a few photos to the Foundation website Expo Corner, here, http://www.foundationexpo88.org/expocorner/expo93.html Enjoy! With best regards, John McGregor Executive Director Foundation Expo '88 http://www.foundationexpo88.org/
