2022 Candidate City Briefing for IOC Members
The 2022 Candidate City Briefing for IOC Members will take place at The Olympic Museum, on 9 June 2015.
The purpose of this presentation is to give the opportunity to the 2022 Cities to present their 2022 bidding project to all the IOC voting members, and to give the IOC members the possibility to put questions to the Cities on their bids prior to the election, which is set to take place during the 128th IOC Session in Kuala Lumpur on 31 July. For the first time, and following the Olympic Agenda 2020 recommendation, the 2022 Evaluation Commission will also address the IOC members and the Presidents and Secretaries General of the Winter International Federations and take their questions.

Please note that the briefings made by the Candidate Cities to the IOC members on 9 June at The Olympic Museum will be closed to the media. However, photos and video footage of each delegation inside the room before they start their respective presentations will be made available (see details below). 

On 10 June, each City will have a separate room in the Lausanne Palace Hotel, where it can display models, show bid videos, answer questions, etc. In the morning, IOC members will visit each City’s presentation room from 8.30 a.m. to 12.00 p.m. The rooms will then be open to the media from 2 p.m.
