About Expo Milano 2015

For the first time in the history of world fairs, the theme of a World Expo is food: Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life. This theme will unite over 140 participants into action around the challenges and opportunities facing our global food system and the sustainable development of our planet.

Running for 184 days (from 1 May to 31 October), this giant exhibition site, covering one million square meters, is expected to welcome over 20 million visitors who will experience a unique journey that looks at the complex theme of nutrition.

Expo Milano 2015 will be the first Exposition in history to be remembered not only for its entertaining pavilions, but also for its contribution towards education on food and the planet’s precious resources.
