Expo.02 - that was the first Swiss National Exhibition in the new millennium. 39 exhibitions and more than 13'500 events made the Three Lakes Region the cultural centre of Switzerland for 159 days. 10.3 million people visited the four Arteplages on the shores of Lakes Neuchâtel, Biel and Morat from 15 May to 20 October 2002 and took part in this huge festival, this unforgettable event, which was made possible not least thanks to the tireless efforts of thousands of employees.
