General information about EXPO 2015

Feeding the planet –
Energy for Live

The Theme of the next Universal World Exposition in Milan is “Feeding the planet – Energy for Live”. Considering that Expo 2015 Milano follows a “revolutonary” concept, many of the country pavilions won’t be seperated into continent areas. Especially some smaller countries should be pooled in a kind of “cluster” pavillons or areas according to their specific food chain elements (e.g. Rice, Cereals and Tubers, Spices, Cacao, Coffee, Fruit and Legumes) or particularly relevant global themes (Agriculture and Nutrition in Arid Zones, Seas and Islands, Bio-Mediterraneum Ecosystems).

As described on the offical Expo website “each country will have its own independent exhibition space to illustrate its particular contribution to the theme of the Cluster. The common areas at the heart of the Cluster will be dedicated to the food experience and sales of characteristic products.”

Matteo Gatto, Thematic Spaces Director at Expo 2015 explained in an interview with expo elements, that we can expect a totally new, green and blue Expo site in 2015 (watch the interview).

Not even two years before the Expo, in May, Milan kicked off with a foretaste of what is to come in 2015: The Expo Days 2013 .

What’s so special about

World EXPOs?

THEMES & TOPICS, EDUTAINMENT, SHOWS & HISTORY

World Expos are as unique as extraordinary. They have a tradition for more then a hundred and sixty years.

Bringing the world together

World EXPOs or World’s Fairs are regarded as the Olympics in the areas of economy, culture, science and technology. They brought man’s and nation’s most innovative achievments to new places. In the US they are seen as an “American Icon” that represented American exceptionalism or even the American Dream.
Earlier the events have been started in Europe (1851 London) – and as Mirror of time EXPOs moved on to new regions. Landed in Asia in 1970 (Osaka/Japan) for the first time, they reached the climax in the number of size and visitors in 2010. More than 73 Milion people attended the EXPO 2010 Shanghai.

Popular inventions

The centerpiece of EXPOs have been the presentation of inventions. Just a small list of examples should demonstrate the significance of the innovations: The Phongraph (1878 Paris), The Ferris Wheel (1893 Chicago), The Zipper (1893 Chicago), The X-Ray Machine (1901 Buffalo), The icecream cone (1904 St. Louis), Electricity (1904 St. Louis), The Hot Dog (1904 St. Louis), The baby incubator (1909 Seattle), The Television Set (1939 New York), The Mobile Phone (1970 Osaka)

Architectural landmarks

Moreover EXPOs are playgrounds for architects. Many world wide known landmarks have been originating from EXPOs and became landmarks of cities or even countries. The most popular without question is the Eiffel Tower, followed by the Space Needle (Seattle), the Atomium (Brussels), the Oriental Crown (Shanghai) and many more.

Future of EXPOs

The upcomming events in Milano 2015, Astana 2017 and most recently Dubai 2020 promise to bring more excitement to the future of EXPOs.

Plattform for solutions

Today EXPOs dealing with universal or specialised themes to work on and present solutions for the world’s complex problems. It is also a communication plattform for nations.

Carnival of Cultures

Apart from the deeper meaning they can also be just a huge colorful Carnival of Cultures. Where else can you go on a peaceful world tour in just one day?
