Now called "World Expos", the events might not be the iconic extravaganzas of old, but they still have the potential to draw millions to their host cities.

The United States congratulates the city of Buenos Aires and the Government of Argentina for winning the right to host Expo 2023 as a result of today's vote at the 162nd General Assembly meeting of the Bureau of International Expositions in Paris, France.

To win the World's Fair bid, a site must earn two-thirds of votes cast.

Minnesota was in a three-way battle with Poland and Argentina. This was the first USA bid to host a World's Fair in nearly 30 years, and we are grateful to the Bid Committee and its public and private partners for their efforts.

"I'm confident we've done nothing but good for our region, and for the advancement of the theme Healthy People, Healthy Planet", board member Marilyn Carlson Nelson said in a statement. After the first round of voting, Argentina and Poland each had 46 votes.

Buenos Aires, the country's capital, expects more than 6 million visitors, including a quarter of a million internationally.

The state's bid has Bloomington, near the Mall of America, as the proposed site for the 2023 World Fair and it would take place over the summer.
