Members of the Fair's press and publicity staff played an active role in getting the Fair's message out to the world.
Articles about the Fair appeared in publications around the world. Many journalists received invitations to visit St. Louis and experience the Fair.
Fair-goers also helped advertise the Fair. During their visits, many bought brightly colored souvenirs and daily programs. They took them home for friends and family who, after seeing them, decided a visit to the Fair was a must.
