In January, members of the Bureau International des Expostions (BIE) came to visit Toronto on a fact finding mission. The BIE is the intergovernmental organization in charge of overseeing and regulating World Expos. TPLC was on hand to greet Secretary General Dr. Vicente Gonzalez Loscertales and Deputy Secretary General Dimitri Kerkentzes and give them a tour of the Port Lands; the potential site of the 2025 Expo should the City of Toronto decide to bid on the event.The World Expo is a large, public exhibition that showcases modern innovations in science and technology. Along with showcasing the latest innovative technologies, the Expo acts as a social and cultural celebration of all the participating nations – the most recent Expo held in Milan from May through October 2015, had 145 participating countries and greeted 22.2mil visitors.
