After the last three successful Expos at beautiful sites in Europe—Stresa, Italy (2014), Montreux, Switzerland (2011), and Girona, Spain (2008)—our committee, comprised of members of the Military Miniatures Society of Illinois with experience in running one of the most popular local modeling shows in the world for the last 40 years, is proud to be bringing the World Expo back to the United States for the first time since Boston in 2005 on the weekend of July 7-9, 2017.
