IOC EB meetings and 2016 Candidate Cities Briefing for IOC Members in June


The Executive Board (EB) of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) will meet in Lausanne on 15 and 16 June 2009. The primary focus will be the presentation to the EB of the seven candidate sports vying to enter the Olympic sports programme. The EB will also hear the reports from IOC commissions and directors, as well as updates on preparations for the forthcoming Olympic Games in Vancouver, London and Sochi, and the Youth Olympic Games in Singapore and Innsbruck. 
 
The EB meeting will be followed by the 2016 Candidate Cities Briefing for IOC Members that will take place on 17 and 18 June 2009. This briefing has been organised to permit the 2016 Cities to inform all IOC voting members on the technical aspects of their bid and to give IOC members an opportunity to put questions to the cities on their bids prior to the IOC Session in October.
 
Please note that the briefings made by the Candidate Cities to the IOC members on 17 June at the Olympic Museum will be closed to the media. There will, however, be a short photo opportunity before each briefing.
 
On 18 June, each city will have a separate room in the Lausanne Palace Business Centre where it can display models, show bid videos, answer questions, etc. In the morning, IOC members will visit each city’s presentation room.  From 2 – 4.30 p.m. these rooms will be open to the media.
 
Media representatives wishing to cover the meetings are requested to confirm their attendance via the IOC website (please see below).
