Three countries are candidates to host Specialised Expo 2022/23: the Republic of Poland (in Łódź), the United States of America (in Minneapolis) and the Republic of Argentina (in Buenos Aires).
Specialised Expos, known officially as International Recognised Exhibitions, can be organised in the interval between two World Expos, and are designed to respond to a precise challenge facing humanity. The most recent Specialised Expo took place between 10 June and 10 September 2017 in Astana, Kazakhstan, under the theme “Future Energy”.
The project examination phase for Specialised Expo 2022 will take place over the next few months. Each project will be presented to the General Assembly of the BIE on 14 June 2017. The host country will be elected by the 170 Member States of the BIE at the subsequent General Assembly in November 2017.
