“We look forward to a fruitful cooperation,” added Wolfgang Marzin, president and CEO of Messe Frankfurt.
“We are pleased to have won the contract and would like to thank the federal government for their trust in Messe Frankfurt’s expertise,” said Marzin.

According to the organizers, the national pavilions will focus on issues such as food, energy, life and the globe.
The World Expo is scheduled to be open for six months, from May 1 to Oct. 31, 2015.
