The six-month long Shanghai Expo is approaching the end of its first week. Over the coming weeks and months, we'll be going behind the scenes to speak to the people who made it happen, who're running the show, and who've enjoyed (or otherwise) the experience!
In the first of our series on Shanghai Expo-sed we caught up with Frank Lavin, the Chairman of the Steering Committee for the US Pavilion.
Listen to what Frank had to say during this interview about the opening ceremony, and how the US managed to 'Rise to the challenge' when at one point it appeared they would be a significant absentee from the event!
To learn more about the mammoth steel structure (than many thought would only be a tent) visit the official USA Pavilion Expo 2010 Shanghai website.
