During an espresso under mayors in 2016, the idea of a new expo was born. Convinced of the social significance of a national exhibition, the ten cities of Basel, Bern, Biel, Geneva, Lausanne, Lugano, Lucerne, St. Gallen, Winterthur and Zurich founded the association "NEXPO – the new Expo" in 2018. Zurich's mayor Corine Mauch presides over the association. The NEXPO will not be a classic national show on a fenced area, but for the first time will cover the whole of Switzerland and all language regions – cities, agglomerations and rural areas. It will develop in the coming months and years, but is already an important platform for exchange between the various regions and the implementation of the first pilot projects.

As one of the founding cities, Zurich is on the one hand the initiator and host, on the other hand the thematic focal point and innovation locomotive of the project. The city participates in the strategic management of NEXPO and at the same time works on its own core topics, which are based on the three thematic areas of innovation, participation and living space. The City of Zurich is developing a pilot project in the area of "Ecology and Open Spaces". In line with the basic principles of NEXPO, this should be participatory and invite various target groups to dialogue.
