In early 2016, Łódź launched a campaign to encourage support for the bid project, with images of the Expo project being displayed around the city since 1 April.
In accordance with BIE regulations, the government of a country wishing to organise an International Specialised Expo can only submit its candidature a maximum of six years and a minimum of five years before the opening date of that Expo, but once a candidate files its bid to the BIE for an Expo, the other candidates have a maximum of six months to state their intention to compete for the same Expo.
Poland was a founding member of the BIE in 1928, although it left the organisation between 1950 and 1960. The country has never hosted an Expo, but it has participated in many World and International Expos. Łódź is Poland’s third largest city with a population of over 700,000.
