Milan hosted the Expo 2015 World’s Fair for its second time since 1906. The fair opened on May 1, 2015 at 10:00 CEST,and the Expo closed on October 31, 2015. The fair grounds are just northwest of the center of Milan accessible from the Rho Metro Station. The exposition site covers 110 hectares (272 acres) and is expected to attract more than 20 million visitors. Over 145 countries participated directly in the pavilions. The theme for the fair was “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life.”
Several Minnesota delegations attended the fair as groups of MN representatives. This provided a great opportunity for networking and experiencing the fair. Some delegations where focused on learning best practices from the Milan organizers and to build partnerships for developing the Minnesota’s plans to host a World’s Fair. Other groups used the opportunity for international business and networking to accelerate major corporate initiatives.
