The BIE was created by an international convention signed in Paris, France in 1928, which established the rights and responsibilities of the Expo organizers and participants. The role of the BIE is to supervise and ensure the application of this Convention.
As the international governing body of Expos, the BIE provides the regulatory framework for these prestigious global events, in which countries, international organisations, civil society groups, corporations, and citizens participate.
The BIE’s mission is to maintain the integrity and quality of Expos so that they may continue to educate the public and promote innovation in the service of human progress.
Expos must be able to not only provide a benchmark for the human progress made in a given domain but also propose a roadmap for the way forward – and the BIE works to ensure this.
