Moffett Field in Sunnyvale is a major contender for the 2020 World Exposition. Some say, it is the frontrunner.

If it happens, it could bring hundreds of thousands of jobs and millions of visitors.

The Bay Area Council is working on the project.

Moffett Field has 500 acres right in the heart of Silicon Valley with access to several mass transportation systems.

The competitors include Turkey, Thailand and possibly Russia. The last U.S. expo was in 1984 in New Orleans.
