I've been getting news for the Specialized Expo 2027/28 news with the candidates of San Carlos de Bariloche (Argentina), Belgrade (Serbia), Málaga (Spain), Phuket (Thailand) and Minnesota (USA).

First up, is Minnesota (USA) the 1st candidate for the event:

 

The theme for Minnesota 2027 will be: "Healthy People, Healthy Planet: Wellness and Well-Being for All" and would take place between May 15th and August 15th 2027 if Minnesota is awarded the Expo 2027/28 and would be the first time the Expo would be held in USA since 1984 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Next stop, Phuket (Thailand) the 2nd candidate:

Phuket 2028 will use the theme: "Future of Life: Living in Harmony, Sharing Prosperity". It would take place from March 20th to June 17th 2028 if Phuket is chosen and would be the first time the Expo held in Southeast Asia (ASEAN).

Moving on now to Belgrade, Serbia the 3rd candidate for Expo 2027/28:

The theme Belgrade 2027 will be: "Play for Humanity: Sport and Music for All". It would be held between May 15th and August 15th 2027 if the BIE selects Belgrade and would be the first time the Expo would be held in the former Yugoslavia and the first in Europe since 2008 in Zaragoza, Spain.

Speaking of Spain, let's now view Málaga, Spain the 4th candidate:

The concept of Málaga 2027 is: "The Urban Era: towards the Sustainable City". It would takes place between June 5th and September 5th 2027 should Málaga be successfully awarded the Expo and first in Spain and Europe since 2008 in Zaragoza.

And last but not least, San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina the fifth and final candidate:

The theme for Bariloche 2027 will be: "Nature + Technology = sustainable energy: A viable future for humanity". It would be taking place between February 1st and April 30th 2027 if Baroloche is successful and would be the second time after Buenos Aires 2023 and would be the first to host two consecutive expo since USA in 1982 and 1984.

 

Who do you think will host the Expo 2027? I think Belgrade, Serbia should be awarded the Expo 2027 because of the theme: "Play for Humanity: Sport and Music for All" fits this topic and the sporting values and development in Serbia.

My prediction it should Belgrade. Some are guessing Málaga or Minnesota as possible host.

If it would have been a more attractive area, Orlando or Vegas or literally anywhere in the top 10 US vacation cities, I would suspect the US would probably have a good chance. Especially if they would have taken the theme from Belgrade. Biggest concern with Minnesota to me, even if it is the Minneapolis-Saint Paul metro area, is a relative lack of hotel rooms and frankly large-scale convention space or outdoor space suitable for hosting such events, which many other cities have in spades.

What about Phuket (Thailand) or Bariloche (Argentina)? What are their chances one by one?
