The BIE oversees four types of International Exhibitions: World Expos, Specialised Expos, Horticultural Expos and the Triennale di Milano.
The BIE’s mission is to guarantee the quality and the success of all four world events, protect the rights of their organisers and participants, and preserve its core values of Education, Innovation and Cooperation. This is achieved by providing candidate and host countries with expertise in event management, national branding and public diplomacy, and regulating the organisation as well as making sure the host country and all participants respect the 1928 Paris Convention and the rules of the Expo.
Each Member State is represented by a maximum of three Government-appointed delegates who take part in the decision-making process of the BIE through the General Assembly and Committees. In the Expo organisation process, Member States elect the host countries, adopt special regulations, and monitor the development of the Expo from selection to legacy.
The BIE Secretariat under the authority of the Secretary General is in charge of the management of the BIE.
