Agoda.com, one of Asia’s leading hotel booking sites and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq:PCLN), has unveiled ten hotel properties offering great deals for the Milan Expo 2015.
This is first time the glob-spanning event has been held in Italy’s culture and fashion hub since 1906.
Informally known as the world’s fair, the Universal Exposition got its start in London in 1851, and is held roughly every five years. Each event is built around a different theme, dedicated to exploring a particular human endeavor or important contemporary issues. Previous examples include transportation, sustainable development, technology, agriculture, arts and industry, and the era of discovery. This year, Expo Milan takes place from 1 May – 31 October under the theme “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life.”
The event’s website labels it as “a global, interactive event with thousands of cultural offerings both within and outside the exhibition site. Shows, concerts, conferences, cooking demonstrations, workshops and exhibitions will offer plenty of opportunities for reflection as well as enjoyment.”
Taking up over 1 million sq.m, the exhibition site sits just a few kilometers from the center of Milan, and features a wide array of food-based learning clusters, thematic areas, and activity sites. These include a children’s park, future food district, open air theater, lake arena, hospitality areas, and of course, plenty of food and drink. In addition, visitors can expand their horizons by visiting the pavilions of 145 countries, thirteen NGOs, and international organizations such as the United Nations, the European Union, and CERN.
There is also plenty to see in Milan itself. The world famous cultural capital is also one of Italy’s centers of industry, commerce, and finance. The city has some of the world’s best museums, historic architecture, ancient theaters, and World Heritage landmarks.
Whether it’s for the Expo or just to visit Milan itself, these last-minute hotel specials will please everyone. VisitAgoda.com’s media room to see the hotels.
