Eutelsat has announced it is the official sponsor and exclusive satellite partner for Expo Milano 2015.

Set to attract exhibitors from over 140 countries and to draw 20 million visitors over six months, Expo Milano 2015 will have the theme 'Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life'.

Eutelsat will support the three key platforms of the exhibition: the Cyber Expo which will enable individuals to tour the event virtually; the ICT Ecosystem outside the Milan site; and the Smart City located inside the 1.1sq km exhibition area.

The operator will launch a dedicated video channel in its Hot Bird neighbourhood that will broadcast news, features, country highlights and key events from May to October 2015.

Eutelsat will also provide turnkey services to exhibitors, country pavilions and broadcasters to enable them to "provide immediate coverage with the highest image quality to audiences beyond Milan," the group comments.
