The most recent Specialised Expo was held in the city of Yeosu in the Republic of Korea in 2012, which attracted over 8 million visitors under the theme “The Living Ocean and Coast”. The next Specialised Expo is to take place in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, between 10 June and 10 September 2017 under the theme “Future Energy”.
