Rewind Expo Milano 2015: inside the pavilions
Here’s some more of my fave pics from inside the Pavilions at Expo Milano 2015!
Looking back at Expo Milano, it really did show up how much I saw and how much I didn’t know about the world, from places I had no clue of, to who excelled at producing the finest and sustainable foods from coffee & rice to the sustainable energy processes used to produce them.
Belgium had one of the largest pavilions at the EXPO and in all honest it was only the smaller and third world countries and continents that has the smallest pavilions as they were group into their speciality. Which is rather ironic as all of these places provide us with our every day staples in our food cupboards. I mean how many of you prefer a Guatemalan coffee over a European blend? or a spring and full bodied Kenyan tea over a Yorkshire’s? I know for a fact I only drink Assam or Kenyan blend tea as nothing else has the fullness.
Even though these were the smallest pavilions they were the most insightful as they gave you a proper sense of the culture and you were able to buy their blends of teas and coffees, which of course sold like wildfire! And quite rightly so. These cultures are NOT compensated fairly for their outstanding contribution to the world’s produce.
Burt enough of that. The most standout pavilion was the United Emirates. It was like a Royalty scene in their cultural attire. people was standing and starting and snapping them in amazement. They by far had the longest queue and without a doubt they put in the WORK WORK WORK WORK WORK into each stage of their production, from start to finish. I’m telling you they don’t scrimp or save on anything. It’s 1000% or nothing.
They had a talk at the entrance with 3d model demo’s, a talk-back camera scene with wasn’t revealed until the end, a senses short film about a little girl called Sara, and a finale showing their projects for EXPO 2020 in Dubai. Judging by the amount they put into their Expo Milano production, 2020 is going to be phenomenal.
I took over 1000 pics at the EXPO fair and OMG there’s so much more I could show, but there was so much and I didn’t even get half of it. Next time I visit another one. I’d do it over 3 days to fully capture the scene of world.
Here’s the rest of the EXPO pics. I hope you can pinpoint each country…
Roll on EXPO 2017!
