The theme encompasses technology, innovation, culture, traditions and creativity as applied to food safety, quality and future security.

EXPO 2015

Milan and Italy are obviously famous for their outstanding quality of food using authentic, healthy ingredients in a passionate way utilizing the regional and national biodiversity. Although this focus on the Italian food industry (the nation’s second largest economy with an annual turnover of €100bn & 500,000 workers) will undoubtedly stimulate the regional and national culinary industry and market, EXPO 2015 also aims to stimulate awareness and action in the global arena.

Concerns about the environment, quality of food, genetically manipulated nutrients and energy crises are heard globally but perhaps the longest heard anxiety relates to the quantity of food. The publicized hunger of the third world may creep into global hunger with a rapid depletion of agricultural surpluses and a seemingly cumulative growth of global population.

Attentive to the muffled warnings of our time, Milan has applied Milanese excellence to helping educate and train people in the science of health, food, the quality of life, solidarity and international cooperation with a whole host of programs and courses that seek to come to grips with the messages of EXPO 2015 and previous Expos such as:

  • 2 faculties of medicine offering undergraduate degree courses specializing in the Science of Food
  • 6 private institutes and 3 hospitals dedicated to the study of health, nutrition and disease
  • 20,000 researchers into health products
  • 831 undergraduate degree and 640 post-graduate courses focusing on development of world society and nutrition
  • 5 hotel and catering institutions offering training on catering and consumer food supply
  • The only local authority in Italy offering in-house catering for all primary schools within it’s jurisdiction offering strict nutritional and quality controls.

Location: EXPO 2015 will be held on a 1.1 km2 site in the new Fiera Milano exhibition complex in the districts of Rho and Pero connected by:

  • Metro Line 1
  • 3 motorways – A4 Turin-Milan-Venice, A8/A9 Milan-Como-Chiasso and Milan-Varese
  • East entrance railway station
  • Equidistant to Milan’s three airports ensuring rapid access

Events raising awareness of EXPO 2015 and its message will be taking place throughout Milan from now until its opening with over 150 countries and countless international organisations having already confirmed their participation. Of course, at our hotel you are superbly positioned to take advantage of all that this fabulous and historic event has to offer.
