BIE
Following a series of highly successful exhibitions after London’s Crystal Palace Exhibition in 1851, it became necessary to createan international organization responsible for supporting and regulating World Expos. To this end, the Bureau of International Exhibitions(BIE: Bureau des International Expositions) was established in 1928. There are currently 156 member countries of the BIE.
For more than 150 years, International Expositions have contributed to improving the quality of human lifeby showcasing innovations and inventions that have introduced new epochs; the steam engine, telephone,automobile, Eiffel Tower, and TV all debuted at World Expos.The World Expo now shoulders the new mission of presenting ideas, stimulating creativity and encouragingcooperation to tackle the universal challenges facing humanity.
