A colonial exhibition is a type of international exhibition that was intended to boost trade and bolster popular support for the various colonial empires during the New Imperialism period, which started in the 1880s with the scramble for Africa. The 1924 British Empire Exhibition was one, as was the successful 1931 Exposition coloniale in Paris, which lasted six months and attracted 34 million visitors.
