In this study, the candidacy, preparation and planning process of Antalya, which hosted the Botanical EXPO in 2016, was examined in detail. EXPO is one of the important and reputable organizations that stand out in large-scale organizations with its potential to contribute to the host city in the short, medium and long term. In this study, Antalya's EXPO experience was investigated based on the advantages of the EXPO organization and other legacies expected to be left to the host city of the EXPO (infrastructure and transportation, parks and green spaces, area and location heritage, social and organizational capacity and international relations etc.) and the positive and negative aspects of the EXPO experience of Antalya were analyzed in detail. The EXPO is an organization that is able to leave significant legacies to the host city, and the success in this organization is an important point of reference in planning similar events that are likely to be organized in the future. The data obtained within the scope of this study is intended to guide the process of candidacy and staging as well as planning the effects of similar large-scale organizations on the future of the host cities.
