Exhibit objectives should be reasonable, feasible, and flexible. The general concept for the pavilion structure should include three basic areas: an exhibition area, a live performance area and an administration/hospitality lounge area. The proposal should contain a detailed timeline and budget that demonstrate substantive undertakings and fundraising and logistical capacity. 2. Institutional Capacity/Record/ Ability: Proposed personnel and institutional resources should be defined and adequate and appropriate to achieve the exhibit’s goals. Proposals should demonstrate an institutional record of successful exhibit activities, including responsible fiscal management and full compliance with all BIE-registered Expo requirements. ECA will give serious weight to past performance and demonstrated potential of the staffing proposed for the project. 3. Multiplier effect/impact: Proposals should clearly state how exhibit content and related activities will strengthen long-term mutual understanding between the United States and China. 4. Support of Diversity: Proposals should demonstrate how plans will address ECA’s requirement to encourage the involvement of participants from all traditionally underrepresented groups including women, racial and ethnic minorities and people with disabilities.

Proposals must also present a credible fundraising plan to fund all aspects of the U.S. Pavilion project.
