WADA opens registration for its 2023 Annual Symposium to be held on 14-15 March


The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is pleased to announce that online registration is now open for the Agency’s 2023 Annual Symposium on 14-15 March 2023 at the SwissTech Convention Center in Lausanne, Switzerland. Like this year, we have determined we will proceed in arranging for a hybrid Symposium, enabling us to foster onsite interaction while retaining the option of virtual participation for those unable to join us in person.

Under the theme “United toward a world of doping-free sport”, this 17th edition of the Symposium will, once again, be an interactive and practical event that offers anti-doping stakeholders the opportunity to learn from one another. The Symposium is designed for anti-doping practitioners from International Federations, National and Regional Anti-Doping Organizations and Major Event Organizers; as well as, Athletes, Governments, WADA-accredited laboratories, Athlete Passport Management Units, service providers, researchers and the media – all that are integral to clean sport.


Should you wish to register for the Symposium, we invite you to do so on the Symposium website by 15 February 2023 (23:59 CET) to benefit from the early bird rate. The website contains all relevant information regarding the event, including the preliminary agenda, how to register and how to 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 look forward to welcoming many of you to the 2023 Annual Symposium in Lausanne.
