WADA Requests Expressions of Interest for Host City, 2007 World Conference

On May 15, 2005, WADA’s Executive Committee approved the publication of a Request for Expressions of Interest to host a third World Conference on Doping in Sport in 2007.

Members unanimously supported holding a World Conference in 2007, recognizing it as an important opportunity to assess the status of the fight against doping following the implementation of the World Anti-Doping Code and the International Convention against Doping in Sport, and to identify the next steps that should be taken.

The first World Conference, held in Lausanne in February 1999, conceived the idea of an independent international agency to be responsible for coordinating and monitoring the fight against doping in sport and led to the birth of WADA in November 1999. A second World Conference followed in Copenhagen in 2003, when the World Anti-Doping Code was unanimously approved by representatives from governments and the sports movement.

Cities/countries interested in hosting the 2007 Conference are kindly asked to submit a formal expression of interest by October 14, 2005.
