On 02/21/17 the Expo 2023 team announced that the US Federal Government had re-established its relationship with the International Bureau of International Expositions after withdrawing in the Bush Jr. era. This is a positive step forward in US / International relationships and opens the door for Minnesota to bid to host the 2023 Worlds Fair. The proposal is under development and will be submitted in an attempt to win the approval from the BIE in the coming year. With 2023 rapidly approaching, Minnesota will only have a limited window to ready itself to host the world. Everything from basic infrastructure to developing new showcase assets to attract the worldMinnesotasota will need to be developed through vast amounts of participation of the private and public sector. Stay tuned to this initiative as it leads the way for the USA to be one of the premier posters of World’s Fairs!
