What is the expo?

The national exhibition is a showcase for the Swiss about Switzerland. Every few decades, the achievements of art, culture and business are presented. The last national exhibition, Expo.02, took place in 2002 in western Switzerland, in the towns of Biel, Neuchâtel, Murten and Yverdon.
