WADA Seeks Host for its 2019 World Conference

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is calling upon interested cities and countries to host the next World Conference on Doping in Sport in November 2019. Past Conferences have seen participants from the sport movement, public authorities, anti-doping organizations, athletes, coaches and the media converge to address how to tackle the most pressing issue facing sport today – doping. This fifth edition is foreseen as the opportunity for the wider anti-doping community to meet again and engage in further high level discussion and debate about global anti-doping programs, practices and processes.
WADA asks cities and countries that are interested in submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI) to host the Conference, to:

  1. Consult the linked document outlining the decision process and timelines for selecting a host city;
  2. Consult the linked document that, among other things, outlines the expected criteria for a host city; and
  3. Submit an EOI, in English or French, by Friday, 25 November 2016.

The decision regarding the host city will be taken in May 2017 by the WADA Foundation Board.

Thank you for your consideration.
