This year's expo will be held under the theme "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life." Participating countries are encouraged to display technology, innovation, culture and traditions that relate to subsistence and sustainability.

The Estonian pavilion, with a total exhibition area of 1,010 square meters, consists of several galleries, with organic food, unspoiled nature, and modern information society forming the conceptual backbone of the display titled "Landscape on a Plate."

The pavilion will have two eateries that offer a chance to try out fresh Estonian food. The ground floor open gallery will host concerts, fashion shows and a world record attempt in kiiking.

Estonian Air will open a Tallinn-Milan direct route for the duration of the world's fair.
