The work of organizing it is done by a Paris-based organization named Bureau International des Expositions (BIS). This organization was started in 1928, whose goal is to maintain the standards of the World Fair and improve it.
How is it decided where the fair will be held?
There is also regular voting for who will host the World Fair. The member countries of BIS vote for this. The country that gets the most votes among the countries around the world gets the opportunity to organize the fair. BIS officials reach the hosting country to see how well the fair is meeting its standards. From its preparation to the venue, the organizer keeps an eye on the venue. This ensures that the program can take place as scheduled.
BIS has the power to arbitrate if disputes arise between countries competing to host an exhibition or between participants and organizers.
