Expo 2015 is being held just northwest of Milan's city center under the theme "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life." It is the first world's fair with a food theme.
Unlike previous expositions where smaller countries or countries with fewer resources would be grouped together geographically, Expo 2015 is creating food-theme clusters that will allow countries to address various issues that are not necessarily bound by geography.

At the Expo 2015 2nd International Participants Meeting in 2012, Expo 2015's planners started the three days of meetings with a ceremony in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II (built from 1865 to 1877) in the Piazza del Duomo area in Milan.
After the performance, they led the participants in a procession to our first day of meetings at the University of Milan. As we progressed along the way, new banners (representing the participating nations thus far) were unveiled.
