Minneapolis, Twin Cities MN (PRWEB) August 18, 2014

Worlds Fairs have always been about important firsts. Now Minnesota's crowdfunding effort leads bid to return the World Fair to U.S. soil. Its Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign is an innovative first that can accomplish it. The next 30 days are an exciting opportunity to bring the EXPO 2023 Worlds Fair back to America, hosted in Minnesota.

Its going to take a special effort to bring the Worlds Fair back to America, and Indiegogo lets us build a people-powered movement behind our bid that will make history," states Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, the Advisory Chair of Expo 2023, The Minnesota Worlds Fair.

The $200,000 that will be raised through this Indiegogo campaign will fund the economic and community impact studies needed for our official Expo 2023 bid. Crowdfunding has never before been used before to fund a World Fair campaign, making this a first in marketing history.

This strategic global fundraising action is timed perfectly as Minneapolis St. Paul ramps up for the Minnesota State Fair opening this Thursday, August 21 and running through Labor Day, September 1. Fairgoers can visit the EXPO 2023: Minnesota Worlds Fair booth on the ground level of the Grandstand to share ideas and explore early-stage innovations that may just be arriving on Minnesota soil in nine years ahead. Setting the stage to launch the innovative ideas that will showcase in the EXPO 2023 is a demonstration from Minnesotas own worldwide leader in 3D printing, Stratasys.

Crowdfunding is the material that inspirational entrepreneurs are made from. Using the latest in technology and trendy ideas, a marriage between a World Fair and crowdfunding is intriguing Expo 2023s Inaugural Contributors. Investors ideas are welcome for outlining components of Minnesotas bid, starting with the fairs theme. A mere $23 reserves contributors spot at a private preview opening of Expo 2023, based on securing Minnesota to host the event. In a few days fairgoers can walk into to the first Worlds Fair in America booth that will introduce the concept under the watch of international viewers. Bonus perks with key benefits include events with the EXPO 2023 leadership team and tickets to Minnesota highlights that lure millions of tourists annually.

"This crowdfunding is an opportunity of a lifetime to launch a Worlds Fair in Minnesota and showcase a new moment in history of cutting edge business innovations," comments Wendy Meadley, communications lead for Expo 2023: The Minnesota Worlds Fair.
