BUREAU INTERNATIONAL DES EXPOSITIONS (BIE)

Flags-Expo-2010-Shanghai.jpg

Le Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) a été fondé en 1928 et a commencé ses activités en 1931. Il veille à la bonne application de la Convention concernant les Expositions Internationales au nom de 170 pays membres. Le BIE a son siège à Paris, France.

Tous les événements que la plupart des gens qualifieraient d'exposition universelle n'ont pas été sanctionnés par le BIE, notamment l'exposition mondiale de New York de 1964-1965.

Actuellement, le BIE réglemente les expositions enregistrées qui ont lieu les années se terminant par 0 et 5, et les expositions reconnues qui sont autorisées à se produire une fois entre chaque grande exposition (mais pas dans une année adjacente).
