Case Study


UK Pavilion at Milan Expo 2015

Large scale, high profile international government events are not new to us.

This was a flagship programme for UKTI in 2015. We were asked to manage the delivery of cultural and business events on the UKTI Pavilion over the six-month duration of World Expo in Milan. Forensically precise project management and logistical planning was required to deliver this seamless event activity.

Successfully delivered 135 events over 184 days.

The Pavilion hosted political leaders including Prime Minister David Cameron and Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, members of Royal Families, international business leaders, architects, musicians, sports people, fashion designers and some of the world’s top chefs.  To date, the business campaign has been associated with over £653 million of new export business wins by UK companies against a target of £1 billion of economic benefit to the UK.
