The U.S. Department of State has issued a request for proposals for a U.S. pavilion at Milan Expo 2015
. The 30,000-square-foot site needs to address the theme of “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life” through four components: an exhibition area, a food demonstration or exhibition/gift shop area, a VIP hospitality area, and an administrative/staff area.
The government estimates that the project will run between $25 million and $45 million. The selected applicant will be solely responsible for the design, construction, staffing, management, and dismantling/removal of the pavilion. The applicant also must be able to demonstrate to the Department of State that it can raise the funds necessary to complete the project.
“With a projected 20 million visitors, Milan Expo 2015 offers an excellent opportunity to inform, inspire, and persuade foreign audiences about the United States, its people and values, and to promote broad U.S. commercial interests around the world,” according to a statement from the Department of State.
