Last call – Registration for WADA’s 2022 Symposium and Athlete Session

annual symposium lausanne

Deadline to register is 27 May

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) encourages stakeholders to register for its 2022 Annual Symposium, which will be held on 11-12 June in a hybrid fashion, in person at the SwissTech Convention Center in Lausanne, Switzerland, and virtually. A dedicated Athlete Session will be held on 13 June at the same venue.

Under the theme “Raising the Game”, the Annual Symposium will once again gather anti-doping practitioners from International Federations, National and Regional Anti-Doping Organizations and Major Event Organizations, athletes and athlete representatives, Governments, WADA-accredited laboratories and Athlete Passport Management Units, as well as other stakeholders such as service providers, researchers and the media – all that are integral to clean sport.

As outlined in the program, this year’s edition will, in particular, explore how we can further advance anti-doping together for the benefit of athletes worldwide. This will include a mix of plenary and breakout sessions, as well as discussions on some of the developing innovations in anti-doping.

Dedicated Athlete Session on 13 June

Under the leadership of WADA’s Athlete Committee, a session exclusively for athletes and athlete representatives will take place on 13 June with the following agenda. Anti-Doping Organizations are kindly asked to encourage participation of their athlete representatives. For those that are unable to travel to Lausanne, we strongly encourage virtual participation which is free of charge to athletes.

Registration for the Symposium and Athlete Session

We invite you to register online by 27 May 2022 for the Symposium and/or the Athlete Session. The Symposium website contains all relevant information regarding the event, including how to register and book your hotel accommodation.

WADA is committed to ensuring the health and safety of its stakeholder community and the Agency’s staff who will attend the Symposium in person. We will therefore continue to monitor the evolution of the pandemic and base our safety protocols on directives from public health authorities related to COVID-19.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to the Symposium after more than three years of absence since the last event due to the pandemic.
