Three countries are candidates to host Specialised Expo 2022/23: the Republic of Poland (in Łódź), the United States of America (in Minnesota) and the Republic of Argentina (in Buenos Aires). The 170 Member States of the BIE will elect the host country at the 162nd General Assembly in November 2017.

The most recent Specialised Expo took place between 10 June and 10 September 2017 in Astana, Kazakhstan, under the theme “Future Energy”.
