About the Expo 2015
Expo Milano 2015 is the Universal Exhibition that Milan, Italy, will host from May 1st to October 31st, 2015. Over this six-month period, Milan will become a global showcase where more than 140 participating countries will show the best of their technology that offers a concrete answer to a vital need: being able to guarantee healthy, safe and sufficient food for everyone, while respecting the Planet and its equilibrium. In addition to the exhibitor nations, the Expo also involves international organizations, and expects to welcome over 20 million visitors to its 1.1 million square meters of exhibition area.
A platform for the exchange of ideas and shared solutions on the theme of food, stimulating each country’s creativity and promoting innovation for a sustainable future, Expo 2015 is focused on “Feeding the Planet, Energy for life”.
Dassault Systèmes and EXPO 2015
With the World Expo focused on key eco-sustainability themes surrounding the challenge of balancing nutrition for mankind with respect for the planet’s resources, it was a “no-brainer” for Dassault Systèmes – whose main purpose is to provide businesses and people with 3DEXPERIENCE® universes to imagine sustainable innovations capable of harmonizing product, nature and life - to want to participate.
“Society as a whole is placing increasing demands for its survival on a planet with diminishing resources, and we must address this reality or risk the well-being of future generations. Only through seeing and experiencing can society fully discover how a harmony between product, nature and life can positively impact the planet. By offering visualization tools that provide meaningful 3D experiences, we can help inspire imagination and innovation that will meet this challenge and create a more sustainable future.” -Bernard Charlès, President and CEO, Dassault Systèmes.
