Inauguration of the House of International Sport

After 18 months of construction, the House of International Sport in Lausanne was inaugurated on 23 June at an event celebrating Olympic Day.

IOC President Jacques Rogge was joined by Daniel Brélaz, Mayor of Lausanne, and Jacqueline Maurer-Mayor, State Councillor for the Canton of Vaud, in welcoming the guests to the venue.

Sharing Competencies
The House of International Sport was created with the aim of bringing together under one roof a maximum number of international sports administrators, in order to increase synergies and share competencies among the International Sports Federations (IFs) and organisations based in Lausanne. The centre, which will see its first tenants move in next month, consists of a welcome building and three office buildings, creating a functional and modern ensemble.

4,300 m2 of office space
Approximately 20 IFs and 10 companies or organisations in the sports business have rented the 4,300 m2 of office space. Setting up office in the same place will allow them to benefit from a number of shared features, such as the guest reception area, conference and meeting rooms and cafeteria. They will also be just a short distance from the IOC headquarters.
