The expo is curated by the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies.

The AAS is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of the field of Asian Studies through international exchange, networking, publications, research support, and career development. It was originally founded in 1941 as publisher of the Far Eastern Quarterly (now the Journal of Asian Studies).

Founded in 1970, the Editorial Freelancers Association is a national nonprofit professional organization with more than 3,000 members, including writers, editors, copy editors, proofreaders, indexers, translators and others who work in publishing, communications and related fields.

The EFA has garnered praise from publishing pros like Jane Friedman and Louise Harnby and is frequently listed as a valuable resource for authors on sites including Flatpage, BookBub, Publishers Weekly, Poynter, AMWA (the American Medical Writers Association), and the Chicago Manual of Style blog.
