The Journey Continues

A number of public and private sector leaders from the metro area joined Mark Ritchie, President and CEO of Minnesota's Expo 2023 bid committee, in Paris. Meetings and events were held with diplomatic delegations from many of the countries that will vote for Minnesota’s continued candidacy as a host for the 2023 World Expo, historically known as a World’s Fair. The year we’re competing for is a slightly smaller version of the larger Expos that occur on years ending in 0 and 5 (i.e., Milan, Italy hosted one of these in 2015). The proposed Expo dates are May 13 - Aug. 13, 2023.
