Predicted to draw about 20 million visitors, Expo Milano 2015 provides a unique opportunity for all countries to display the best of their innovations on the theme of ‘Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life’, as well as to address the challenges brought by rapid global population growth.
At Expo 2015, the UK Pavilion will showcase new British achievements and innovations reached in each stage of the food chain, in tandem with the wider Expo theme.
The Chamber is delighted to be working closely in partnership with UKTI on Expo Milano 2015.
Together with the UKTI offices in Milan and London, the BCCI can help British companies and Members to make the most of the opportunities available.
Grown in Britain, Shared Globally is the official UKTI trade campaign for Expo 2015, aiming to promote British trade interests and achievements internationally. At the core of the programme are six Great Weeks, each on a different topic relating to the general theme of Expo:

Delegates participating in the Great Weeks in Milan are invited to join a series of receptions, business-to-business meetings and visits to the Expo site, organised by UKTI.
