Businesses brainstorm to get most from Milan Expo 2015



(By Sandra Cordon) (ANSAmed) - Milan -ßItalian businesses are signing on to an initiative to help them find the best way to participate in Milan's Expo 2015.

Milan's chamber of commerce has developed what it terms a round-table of different themes aimed at helping businesses find the best path to follow to become part of the World's Fair that begins in less than two years' time.

The eight basic themes within the round table include approaches for the non-profit and volunteer sector, the hospitality industry, agricultural businesses, artistic and cultural affairs, and young entrepreneurs interested in joining the international event. And already more than 300 Expo-related projects have been proposed by businesses through the round-table with a connection to the world's fair, organizers say.

Among the projects presented in the agri-food sector is a new logistical system designed by Aice - the Italian Association of Commerce Abroad - in Milan, designed to help importers and exporters both to find market connections, particularly in the agricultural sector.

A specific goal is to provide an Italian contact point, so foreign companies can feel more confident in finding the right Italian partner.

Meanwhile, the youth round-table has brought together young entrepreneurs with ideas for business startups such as a social network for fashion enthusiasts designed by students at the MIP Politecnico di Milano.

It is expected that a great number of business opportunities will grow out of the fair, and not only for Italian businesses. The foreign ministry has previously said that the number of tourism and business visas for Italy has been on the rise, with further increases expected as part of the preparations for Milan Expo 2015.

Almost 1.9 million visas were issued in 2012, a 9% increase over the previous year, the ministry reported.

Expo 2015 in Milan is likely to boost visa requests by another 700,000, the ministry has said.

Food and agricultural business ventures dovetail particularly well with the Milan Expo's theme: 'Feeding the Planet – Energy for Life', which centres on fighting famine and malnutrition worldwide through sustainable and healthy development, global cooperation and new technology.

The Milan Expo, which runs May 1 until October 31, 2015, is expected to attract more than 20 million visitors and to be a massive money spinner for the city known as Italy's business capital.

The Italian coffee at the conquest of the world


illycaffè presents the Coffee Culture Global Tour and its presence at EXPO Milano 2015 as cultural advisor of the coffee world


Today, Expo Milano 2015 and illycaffè have presented to the Foreign Press in Rome the Coffee Cluster, one of nine theme pavilions that at Expo 2015 will focus on specific food and subjects related to the main topic “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”.

Giuseppe Sala (CEO of Expo 2015 Company), Andrea Illy (Chairman and CEO of illycaffè), and Robério Oliveira Silva (Executive Director of ICO, International Coffee Organization) have explained the perspectives and the opportunities for the world of coffee offered by this significant international event.

This morning, at the meeting, illycaffè has also announced an important global tour aimed at celebrating coffee and at spreading the culture of this black beverage, very well-known (after oil it is the second commodity worldwide), and yet not much known in its manifold appealing features.

The Tour

Nine cities; three continents; twenty months left before the opening of Expo Milano 2015, that will be focused on the subject of “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”. Coffee will be one of the main players. illycaffè has been given the mission of managing all cultural contents related to coffee.

Under the aegis of the International Coffee Organization, the tour will bring to every city the expertise of the coffee world, seen from different perspectives:

The journey from the bean to the coffee cup;
The creativity being born by/and developed around the coffee cup (art, literature, etc.);
The culture and the traditions of the countries where coffee is grown and where coffee is drunk;
Coffee and pleasure (sensorial, intellectual, social);
Coffee and sustainability (economic, environmental, social);
Coffee and health (the virtues of a drink that cheers life).
The tour will begin as September 9th from Belo Horizonte (Brazil), on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the International Coffee Organization, the most important intergovernmental organization of the exporting and importing countries, with an exhibition of photos that Sebastião Salgado has made for illycaffè in the last ten years to tell the rural reality of coffee growers’ life.

Sebastião Salgado and Josè Carlos Grossi, coffee grower, will be the Brazilian ambassadors at this event, in an ideal relay race that will finish in Milan, in January 2015. In each of the involved countries, a local testimonial and a representative of the company’s stakeholders will be called to explain and to witness the values that define illy world.

The tour will reach the following cities, and in each of them it will offer a different perspective on the coffee world:

2014
New York (February)
Seoul (April)
Shanghai (June)
Bogotá (September)
Dubai (October/November)

2015
London (February)
Berlin (March)
Paris (April)

illycaffè and Expo Milano 2015

illycaffè has been chosen as partner by Expo Milano 2015 thanks to its experience and the number of relationships developed in eighty years of history: this is such a unique heritage that illy has been acknowledged as the authority of the genuine Italian espresso worldwide. Its deep knowledge of the coffee world and of the growing countries; its pursuit of excellence and innovation; its looking forward to sustainable development; its talent for giving life to cultural and artistic events are the most important reasons that have led Expo 2015 to opt for the Triestine coffee company.

Expo Milano 2015 will be the longest event ever focused on coffee, made possible by an innovative partnership among the institutions and a private player.

At Expo Milano 2015 all visitors will have the occasion to begin a journey in the world of coffee, thanks to dedicated exhibition areas and an agenda full of events: from popularization meetings to tastings, from conventions to entertainment. In the common area, Sebastião Salgado’s reportage will be on display: his is a tribute paid to the people, the history, the traditions, and the nature of the countries where coffee is produced. This photographic journey in the coffee producing countries is a work in progress for illy since 2002, and has the purpose of telling the life and the work of coffee growers and the beauty of those regions. Thanks to the network of international relationships developed by the Triestine company in time, Expo Milano 2015 will participate to the promotional program and the market development of ICO (International Coffee Organization), the reference for the coffee industry. Moreover, with multimedia tools and interactive systems it will be possible to share the experience of the world of coffee in real time, beyond the exhibition space and with the guest countries.

Above all, the project will be focused on sustainability. The stands will be made of environmentally-sustainable materials: objects of daily use and special installations will be shaped and made of exhausted coffee, whereas some clothes will be manufactured by coffee fibers.

At the coffee bar it will be possible to taste the illy coffees studied and proposed by the University of Coffee, while at the shop visitors may buy all kinds of products branded illy and illy Group. In order to make the espresso experience as absolute as possible, and to match esthetic and tasting pleasures, a new collection of coffee cups will be designed and produced on the occasion of Expo Milano 2015.

“Coffee is the drink that counterpoints Italians’ life, every day” Andrea Illy, President and CEO of the company said. “Worldwide, espresso, the coffee elixir, is one of the most recognizable symbols of Made in Italy. In eighty years of history, illycaffè has given life to the most important innovations of the industry: from the espresso machine (as it is meant today, that is pressure coffee machine) to the pressurized packaging to the new portioned coffee. The scientific research and the technological innovations have been the guiding principles of our pursuit of excellence. This is why we have considered an important acknowledgement to be chosen as tutor of coffee-related contents for Expo Milano 2015, and this is why we have decided to organize a Global Tour of the coffee culture, as an approaching journey to the great event”.

“The Expo will be the highest moment, the most important stopover of the Global Tour focused on coffee that we have presented today” Giuseppe Sala, CEO of Expo 2015 Company explained. “Thanks to the decisive contribution of illycaffè, this Cluster will be one of the most interesting and fascinating pavilions to visit at Expo Milano 2015. We are sure that illy will set up exhibitions, events, and meetings so to increase the unique and extraordinary story of coffee and of each variety. The Expo will offer a meeting place and a once in a lifetime event to all those countries that will play a part in the Coffee Cluster and in the International Coffee Organization: with both of them we have begun a wonderful, factual, and cultural journey, with the purpose of discovering one of the most beloved drink of the world”.

UK announces it will participate at Milan Expo 2015

Sustainable growth is the way forward for the EU, says Cameron


(ANSA) - October 4 - The United Kingdom will participate in the Expo 2015 world fair in Milan, British Prime Minister David Cameron announced Friday.

In his message to Italian Premier Enrico Letta, Cameron outlined the common challenges both nations face in Europe: solving economic problems, the number one priority for both Italy and the UK, coming up with ways to make Europe more competitive, and bridging the ever-widening gap between the EU and its citizens.

Defining our democracies as welfare societies must not prevent us from making them economically sustainable, Cameron added.

''In order to maintain the levels of well-being to which we have become accustomed, we must promote a new, sustainable growth by putting the finishing touches on the internal European market, reforming the labor and asset markets, and investing in talent, knowledge and research. It's a difficult task, but not an impossible one,'' the British prime minister said.

Middle Eastern furniture, marketplace and bow windows. Lebanon will take part in the Bio-Med Cluster at Expo Milano 2015 with an exhibition space inspired by its architectural and culinary tradition. The theme statement “Cuisine, the Lebanese Art & Soul” was presented by Commissioner-General for Lebanon, Simon Jabbour, head of the Department of Exhibitions and Fairs at Lebanon’s Ministry of Economy and Trade, who signed on Tuesday afternoon the contract for participation in the 2015 Universal Exhibition along with Commissioner of the Government of Italy for Expo Milano 2015, Giuseppe Sala.

The ceremony was held during the celebrations of the Lebanese national holiday at which Consul General of Lebanon in Italy, Walid Haidar, took part.

The Republic of Lebanon will have an exhibition space of 125 square metres, where it will offer to the visitors an educational and interactive experience through handmade products and typical dishes.

The clusters represent one of the main innovations introduced by Expo Milano 2015. They are nine pavilions that gather under the same project many countries that produce a particular food such as coffee, rice, cocoa, cereals and tubers, spices, fruits and pulses or are interested in developing a specific theme such as Bio-Mediterranean, Food and Nutrition in Arid Zones and Islands, Sea and Food.

The architectural concept of the Bio-Mediterranean Cluster entitled “The White Dream” makes reference to the theme of the white sea beloved by the Mediterranean people, highlighting the multiculturality of this geographical area: the sea, which is a large joint space of the project, keeps together the different cultural identities and hosts exhibitions, marketplace and events. Four cuisines, islands in the sea, enhance the bio-Mediteranean food experience.

“Our presence in this cluster will be a tribute to the Lebanese soul of the Mediterranean”, Simon Jabbour said. “Lebanon is located in the easternmost corner of the Mediterranean, in the Fertile Crescent, where the eastern civilisation was created. The cuisine of this antique land is rich and is part of the history; it is easy to find oriental and western influencies. Even if Lebanon is not a big country, it suceeded in contributing very much to the modern Middle Eastern cuisine. The Lebanese introduced foods from other cultures in their diet and started producing food according to a special method. For that reason, we consider that the food is a celebration of the life: it is fresh, tasty, various and energizing. The food is a source of pleasure, reassurance and security, a symbol of hospitality and social status, it has a religious meaning,” Jabbou explained. The Bio-Mediterranean Cluster will insert Lebanon in its natural context. We will explain how in terms of art, literature, history and sociology, the cuisine could be a way to present our traditions and our culture and how they are related to our style of living. On the other hand, the food is an essential and constant part of the Lebanese art and of various cultural activities. The Lebanese have proven their cooking mastery and have praised it through words (in literature and poems), colours (in pictures and photos), artistic movements and expressions (dance and theatre), focusing on generosity, hospitality and cordiality”, Jabbour added.

“Lebanon will have the important task to represent at Expo Milano 2015 the Middle Eastern area of the Mediterranean Sea,” Giuseppe Sala said. “The cultural, artistic and historic richness which characterises this country and which will be the main subject of its exhibition space, will represent one of the most striking elements for the cluster’s visitors. The cluster intended for the bio-Mediterranean will be one of the feathers in the cap of Expo Milano 2015: it will narrate the rich heritage of experiences, cultures and traditions of a very productive and creative region, which succeeded in benefiting from the resources offered by the territory, thus improving the quality of its products through work, a carefull observation and brilliant solutions. We are sure that Lebanon will contribute for this cluster to become a place for dialogue and unique discussion on the future development and growth of the area where we ourselves are living”, Giuseppe Sala explained

Expo Milano 2015 reaches 138 accessions. Liberia is the last country in time to have confirmed their presence at the Universal Exposition.

Thirty-eighth African country confirming the participation of the Republic of Liberia has announced its decision to take part in the event in 2015 with a note verbale addressed to the Italian Foreign Ministry.

The unanimous response and positive that the African continent is giving Expo 2015 is a proof of the importance that the theme "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life" plays at international level and opportunities for growth and development that can offer all countries of the world.

Expo 2015 - American Food 2.0. The USA present the concept of their pavilion


A lightly structured and welcoming barn, inviting visitors to embark on a journey in the world of sustainable food. This is the concept of the Pavilion of the United States of America which the team “Friends of the U.S. Pavilion” has developed for Expo Milano 2015. The project “American Food 2.0: Sustainable, Innovative, Healthful, Entrepreneurial and Delicious” was presented this morning in the main office of the company which is organising the Universal Expo.

The CEO of the International Culinary Centre, Dorothy Can Hamilton, the vice-president of “The James Beard Foundation”, Mitchell Davis and the managing director of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Italy, Simone Crolla, who are members of the group “Friends of the U.S. Pavilion Milan 2015”, took part in the meeting, which was attended by the Sole Commissioner appointed by the government for Expo Milano 2015, Giuseppe Sala, and the Ambassador of the United States in Italy, John R. Phillips.

U.S. President Barack Obama himself had announced on October 17 to Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta the members of the team which will develop the project and manage the U.S. Pavilion during the six months’ period of the Universal Expo in Milan.

Diversity and responsibility are the pillars on which the presence of the United States of America at Expo Milano 2015 will rest. These elements will be enhanced both in the technological equipment of the pavilion and through events, conventions and happenings which will enliven the exhibition area. The project will be based on the idea that food is a universal language and that the future of nutrition depends on the political, diplomatic, social and technological ability to solve in a creative way the problems connected to nutrition at world level.

Visitors will be engaged in an itinerary “from farm to table” where video installations and vertical and roof gardens – representing the 50 U.S. states and the White House – will lead them to discover the rich cultural, scientific and culinary tapestry which forms the United States of America. A specific programme of initiatives – the Manifesto Project – will be developed in support of corporate responsibility and environmental and food sustainability. Furthermore, a plan envisaging students’ involvement will be launched in cooperation with Italian study projects at U.S. universities.

American Food 2.0 aims to be a young and global Pavilion. For this purpose, the most modern technologies and last-generation communication tools will be deployed: it will be possible to live the experience offered by the U.S. pavilion even through social media.

Moreover, the search for downright regional ambassadors will be launched from the USA. These ambassadors will travel with Food Trucks within the exhibition area and on the streets of Milan during the event.

The target is to tell the story of “Made in USA” agriculture and nutrition, through the innovative elements introduced in food production and distribution processes, and to highlight the important contributions given so far to win in a responsible and sustainable manner the most thorny challenges which humanity has to face.

Pavilion of Israel at Expo Milano 2015

Map
Video
Foto
































The Israeli Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015 was presented to the press in preview by the General Commissioner Elazar Cohen on Monday December 2 at Villa Madama, during the fourth Italy-Israel intergovernmental summit, attended by Prime Ministers Letta and Netanyahu.

The Pavilion, designed by architect David Knafo, will span over 2,370 sq m, an area bordering Italy’s Pavilion, a few steps away from the crossing of the cardinal roads Cardo and Decumanus.

Through new and experimental forms of educational entertainment, the Israeli Pavilion will create an immediate and powerful visual experience, which will outline the development of agricultural technology and will bear witness to the extraordinary journey of the entire humanity towards the future: the Fields of Tomorrow. The project was inspired by the typical features of Israel’s agriculture production, transformed into an inseparable element of the building, which will be covered by a vertical garden so as to create a dramatic and attractive fitting, made up of 100% recycled materials, in accordance with the regulations of green architecture.

Israel, a country where the majority of the land is dry, is in the forefront in the agriculture and wastewater management sectors, a crucial aspect in the fight against desertification, and will show its expertise by providing an essential contribution to the development of the theme “Feeding the planet. Energy for life”.

Israel’s excellence in this field is based on the use of innovative and technologically advanced solutions for irrigation and water resources management, for farming in low-fertility areas and for intensive greenhouse growing, for the development of new seed varieties and for organic and ecological farming. The country, through land recovery projects and ambitious irrigation programmes, which turned useless areas into fertile land, has registered important victories in the fight against desertification, from the northern regions to the dry southern areas.

Expo 2015 , a record for number of countries and pavilions
"

Increase even countries that intend to actively participate in Expo 2015. Poland and Bosnia result in 141 countries that have signed, but " hang " even the promises of Ireland and the United States. Not everyone will have their own hall : the spaces are in fact a total of 60 , still a record in Shanghai since 2010 were 42 . The first 26 pavilions have already been " delivered " recently and will be built beginning in January of 2014. Countries will still exhibit also (or only) in the thematic pavilions , those linked by a common thread .

The boom is mainly from Asia : in the words of Joseph Hall ( sole commissioner for Expo) , reported by the " Courier " , the Persian Gulf countries do not seem to want to spare no expense : they have already booked bigger spaces and entrust the their projects with famous architects .

Boom also from Africa, with many countries - perhaps attracted by the theme " Feeding the Planet " - have already shown very interested in having the pavilions . The regulation says that those who book first will have the space, therefore no assessment of merit . But the engineers are trying to figure out how to remodel the square meters to allow the maximum possible number of countries to exhibit.

promotional ad

The numbers also speak of 100 thousand jobs in related industries , only in the province of Milan, until 2020. Meanwhile, work continues apace for the construction of the "door" of the Expo , in front of the Castello Sforzesco .

Vietnam’s Pavilion at Expo 2015 Competition Entry / H&P Architects


The concept proposal for Vietnam’s Pavilion at Expo 2015 in Milan focuses on mixing settlement and settled agriculture to create the future’s space – the space where settlement and settled agriculture include each other. Titled the Pavilion of dream terraces (field), the building by H&P Architects is created from steel structure frames, which have a large amount of modules – the longest one being 7.5m – that are connected by simple joins or overlapping. More images and architects’ description after the break.



Vietnam is one of the wet rice civilization’s cradles – the civilization that based on the cultivation on the terraces field to take shape. The wet rice civilization played the role of forming the community’s settlement and settled agriculture and immaterial culture achievement, which is the neighborhood culture. The solution is to create a symbolic image with a simple installation method at a low cost.



The steel structure frames are covered by miscellaneous wood which is salvaged to reduce the cost. The structure has multiple functions: force resistance, planter, space for exhibits/furnishings, technical use – water/electricity supply/escape. The field covering the building helps conditioning the microclimate, provides food and creates the symbolic image (the mixing of the terraces field and the traditional house’s roof) for both interior and exterior.



The building seems to grow from the ground, the steep of the volume helps making good views from all approaching directions. The concept is hoped to be a good suggestion for the development of agriculture in the future while the farming area is being reduced due to the uncontrolled urbanization.




The multiplication of the “field” inside the urban is a guarantee for the energy of the future life. The complex between agriculture and architecture is the base for the sustainable development.
