Expo Milano 2015, the first ever Universal Exposition to focus on a central theme of food, opens May 1st and to give everyone who is planning to visit the chance to see exactly what they can expect to find during the event, the organisers have produced a small promo video called Discover Expo.
The video quickly rounds up some of the main attractions planned during the expo and gives a brief rundown of just how diverse the Expo will be.
Events, pavilions, shows, concerts and of course restaurants are all mentioned in the video which captures a little bit of Expo excitement before the big event.
For those looking to step away from the heat of the world’s kitchens during Expo there will be a special show by the award winning Cirque du Soleil who have created a food specific show specifically for the expo called Allavita.
The Expo organisation have also announced the launch of special evening tickets that will allow visitors to visit the Expo from 19.00 - 23.00 every evening for €5.
Staff shortages are hitting the hospitality sector hard, prompting some restaurants to look outside the industry to train those without restaurant experience for life in the kitchen. Andrew Friedman finds out more.
