Countries represented included, but were not limited to: Australia, Ukraine, Germany, Spain, The Americas, Belize, France, Italy, Brazil, Pakistan, India, Venezuela, Japan, Taiwan, Kyrgyzstan, Tunisia, Africa, China, South Korea and Mongolia.

A special presentation from the country of Mongolia included a Ger, the movable home that has been used for thousands of years by nomads in that country. According to native Davaa Dorjsuren, instructor in the School of Business and Economics, who made arrangements for a small Ger to be brought in for the Fair, “It has a unique design, structure and practical features. The Ger is still a popular habitation in many countries in Central Asia.”
