The companies that make up the interest group are committed to the goal of Expo.02, namely to present Switzerland with its multifaceted and dynamic cultural, political and business environment in a modern and attractive manner. First-class projects will link Expo.02 with the successes of the two previous national exhibitions in 1939 and 1964. IG Arteplage Biel-Bienne will work with the Verein Expo.02 (the "National Exhibition Association") to meet the exhibition´s ambitious goals.
The interest group is looking to exploit synergies in terms of organisation and content both during the construction phase as well as during the exhibition itself. It also plans to foster close contacts with the municipal authorities of Biel-Bienne.
