World Expo 2030

Five countries have submitted competing candidatures to organise World Expo 2030: Russia (in Moscow), the Republic of Korea (in Busan), Italy (in Rome), Ukraine (in Odesa) and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (in Riyadh).

The project examination phase for World Expo 2030 will take place in 2022 and 2023, with each candidate submitting a detailed candidature dossier, and the BIE organising Enquiry Missions and assessing the feasibility and viability of each candidature project.

The host country of World Expo 2030 will be elected in 2023 by BIE Member States gathered in a General Assembly, on the principle of one country, one vote.

All candidature projects will be presented for the very first time to BIE Member States during the 169th General Assembly of the BIE on 14 December, and at all subsequent General Assemblies until the final vote.
