Isofar Expo 2015 became an event of unexpected high public interest and awareness. At the closing ceremony Oct 11 it was announced that more than 1.1 million visitors came to the EXPO. This is an overwhelming figure and encouraging response in a county which is on the way to become the ecological, green centre of Korea. Among other highlights the EXPO consisted of 10 thematic halls the content of which was elaborated by a team of ISOFAR World Board members under the lead of our founding President, Ulrich Köpke. 

Our society was present at the exhibition in a very professional and attractive manner thanks to the efforts of our Korean colleagues.
