The annual report of the activities was presented and the councillor, arbiters and board of auditors were appointed. 600 people took part in the meeting. Antonello Regazzoni, General Manager of Unindustria Como:
“The uniqueness of the landscape context, the availability of spaces for important events, the outstanding location and the ample parking space available are the main reasons that led to the choice of Villa Erba for the General Assembly of Unindustria Como. A unique allure adds to these features, which makes the event unforgettable. The staff offered excellent collaboration, and was able to satisfy our needs. So were the wide and functional spaces of the exhibition centre. Another important aspect in the choice of Villa Erba was its location: it can be comfortably reached in little more than half an hour from Milan's airport hubs. We will certainly consider Villa Erba as a venue for future events and will also recommend it to other companies or associations.”
Celebrated in the spectacular EXPO Pavilion, the German Day 2015 had its ideal conclusion in the magical setting of Villa Erba.

After the welcome speech, the buffet points were opened, offering tastings of German and Italian products and show cookings. The guests were able to taste excellent gastronomic specialties while strolling between the Villa's centuries-old park and the central pavilion of the Convention Centre.

Then, in the halls of the historic Villa, began the DJ set, for a night of absolute fun. Villa Erba's German Day also had a strong link with the EXPO theme: Some Siticibo volunteers https://www.bancoalimentare.it/it/siticibo-in-lombardia collected the surplus food to be donated to charities. This initiative was agreed between the Germany Pavilion, Villa Erba and Altra Cucina, which organized the catering for this event.
