Milan: A Must-Visit City for 2015

By NH | 11:43


It’s the Italian capital of fashion and business, and this year, people from around the world will gather there for the Universal Exposition. For this reason, you can’t miss out on the opportunity to visit.

Expo Milano, which takes over from the last event celebrated in Shanghai in 2010, kicked off on May 1st and will not end until October 31st. During these six months, close to 150 countries and international organizations will be represented, attracting 29 million tourists, with an average of 160,000 visitors per day.

The event, which takes place in an exhibition area of one million square meters, will focus on nutrition, gastronomy, and global food resources. Under the tagline “Feed the Planet, Energy for Life”, the debate about the right to healthy and quality food for everyone will take place.

The objective is to raise awareness among attendees about hunger and childhood malnutrition, which affects 850 million people globally. Over the course of six months, there will be more than 7,000 conferences, workshops, ceremonies, debates and informational activities focusing on the subject.

Additionally, this is a great opportunity to visit the city, or if it’s not your first time, to rediscover its main attractions (the cathedral, the stock exchange, La Scala opera house, high fashion shops…) and to feel the pulse of Milan.

It was there that we went last week, to receive the 2015 Business of the Year award from the Federation of Spanish Chambers of Commerce in Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania (FEDECOM). The President of the Government of Spain, Mariano Rajoy, was in charge of giving us the award during the celebration of Spain Day in the Universal Exposition.

The award, which was received by the Group’s President, Rodrigo Echenique, and the CEO, Federico J. González Tejera, recognizes our efforts in boosting the international labor market as well as our commitment to excellent service.

In the words of FEDECOM President, Juan Rodríguez-Villa, “when we live abroad or we travel frequently outside of Spain, we feel proud to find signs of NH Hotel Group in landscape of many cities around the world, on the signs of prestigious buildings and in the best urban areas”.

In fact, Milan is one of the cities in which you can find the most hotels belonging to our Group: nine NH Hotels, one NHCollection and a nhow. The closest hotel to the Expo is the NH Milano Fiera, an impressive complex designed by the renowned architect Dominique Perrault, which is part of set of buildings involved in the FieraMilano Exposition and Demonstrations Fair.

Its two minimalist towers offer spectacular panoramic views stretching for various kilometers, and the best of all is that it only takes 20 minutes to arrive to the city center by metro. Without a doubt, it’s a great option to stay during the Universal Expo. We are waiting for you!
