World Expo 2030

Candidature Phase
       

Until the closing of the candidate list

The six-month candidature phase for World Expo 2030 was launched on 29 April 2021 when the Russian Federation notified the BIE of its candidature for Moscow. This was followed by the Republic of Korea’s candidature for Busan, submitted to the BIE on 23 June 2021, by Italy's candidature for Rome, submitted to the BIE on 7 October 2021, and by Ukraine's candidature for Odesa, submitted to the BIE on 15 October 2021. The BIE will close the candidate list on 29 October 2021 at 5pm CET.

Once the list is closed, the project examination phase of the candidature process will be launched, during which each candidate will submit a detailed candidature dossier. The BIE will then organise Enquiry Missions and assess the feasibility and viability of each candidature project. The host country of World Expo 2030 will then be elected by BIE Member States gathered in a General Assembly, on the principle of one country, one vote.
