Arexpo is a private company held by a majority of public-sector shareholders, founded in 2011 to acquire the areas destined to host Expo Milano 2015. Since the ending of the event Arexpo has worked to define a new future for the entire site, a space of more than one million sq m. Arexpo’s work has led to the creation of MIND Milano Innovation District, an innovation hub and a new neighbourhood for the city. MIND was featured in the last edition of Life Sciences Real Estate, published on 30 September 2022. Igor De Biasio has been the CEO of Arexpo since 2019.

Tell us a bit about yourself and your background. Where did you work prior to your current role?

I am a graduate of Cattolica University in Milan. After a few years of managerial experience in multinational consulting companies, I became an executive in Philips S.p.A. I then joined Moleskine and in 2018. I joined the Board of Directors of RAI, the Italian public broadcaster.
