The three media centers inside the Expo site will go into service on April 27, providing working facilities for more than 100,000 print, TV and radio journalists from around the world.

More than 13,000 journalists, including 3,500 from overseas media, have applied to cover the Expo.

The Expo bureau expects more than 20,000 journalists from both home and abroad to come to the Expo site to cover the 184-day event.

The 2008 Beijing Olympics attracted more than 11,000 reporters, including about 5,000 from abroad.

Meanwhile, more than 1,000 Expo volunteer service stations around the city will open on April 20.

Each will be equipped with first-aid kits, fire extinguishers and free booklets about Shanghai and the Expo.

They'll be in Metro stations, the Pudong and Hongqiao international airports, hotels, commercial streets and tourist attractions.
