The 2027 or 2028 BIE recognised world's fair will be a specialised exposition. As such it must be at most three months in length and illustrate a specific theme. It could be held in 2027 or 2028.
Five countries have submitted competing candidatures to organise a Specialised Expo in either 2027 or 2028: the United States of America (in Minnesota), Thailand (in Phuket), Serbia (in Belgrade), Spain (in Malaga,), and Argentina (in San Carlos de Bariloche).
