    The Universe of Energy was originally sponsored by Exxon. In 2001 the sponsorship became Exxon/Mobile when these two companies merged. On March 17, 2004 Exxon/Mobile ended it's sponsorship of the pavillion.

    It was Exxon becuase as you exited UoE there was a stand that had little bussiness card sized coupons that ,if you took it to an onsite Exxon station they would give you a free poster of a tiger along with some conservation literature. Exxons mascot/symbol was a tiger.
