Four countries have submitted competing bids to organise Specialised Expo 2022/23: the Republic of Poland, the United States of America, the Federative Republic of Brazil and the Republic of Argentina.
The 169 Member States of the BIE will elect the host country of Specialised Expo 2022/23 at the 162nd General Assembly in November 2017.
Poland’s bid is for a Specialised Expo in the city of Łódź between 15 June and 15 September 2022 under the theme “City Re:Invented.”

The Secretary General of the BIE, Vicente G. Loscertales, stated that “these four candidatures demonstrate a high level of interest for this type of Expo.” The project examination phase for Specialised Expo 2022/23 will take place over the next few months. Each candidate will submit a bid dossier, to be followed by a BIE Enquiry Mission. The projects will then be presented to the General Assembly of the BIE on 14 June 2017. The election of the host country by the 169 Member States of the BIE will take place at the subsequent General Assembly in November 2017.
Specialised Expos, known officially as International Recognised Exhibitions, can be organised in the interval between two World Expos. They can last up to three months and are designed to respond to a precise challenge facing humanity. The most recent Specialised Expo was held in the city of Yeosu in the Republic of Korea in 2012, which attracted over 8 million visitors under the theme “The Living Ocean and Coast”. The next Specialised Expo is to take place in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, between 10 June and 10 September 2017 under the theme “Future Energy”.
* In accordance with BIE regulations, Member States must be given priority over non-Member States.
The Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) is the intergovernmental organisation embodying the commitment of its 169 member States to lead, promote and foster International Exhibitions for the benefit of the citizens of the international community.
The BIE oversees four types of International Exhibitions: World Expos (International Registered Exhibitions), Specialised Expos (International Recognised Exhibitions), Horticultural Expos and the Triennale di Milano.
International Exhibitions are global events dedicated to finding solutions to specific challenges facing humanity by offering a journey inside the Expo theme through engaging and immersive activities.
