ThemeEdit

The exhibition will have a theme of “Science, Innovation, Art and Creativity for Human Development. Creative Industries in Digital Convergence” and will take place between 15 January and 15 April 2023.[3]

CandidatureEdit

There were two other bids to host the specialized exhibition. Łódź, Poland submitted the bid with a “City Re:Invented” theme on 15 June 2016.[4]

And Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA submitted a bid with theme “Healthy People, Healthy Planet: Wellness and Well Being for All”.

A secret ballot took place to select the winner at BIE's 162nd General Assembly on 15 November 2017. The first ballot awarded 46 votes to both Buenos Aires and Łódź, with Minnesota gathering only 25 (and 1 abstention). This meant that Minnesota was eliminated and a second round ballot held which gave 62 votes to Buenos Aires and 56 to Łódź.[3]
