The International Olympic Committee (IOC) Executive Board (EB) will meet at the Lausanne Palace Hotel on 9 and 10 July 2017. The 2024 Candidate City Briefing for IOC Members will take place at the SwissTech Convention Center, on 11 and 12 July 2017.

The purpose of this briefing is to give both 2024 Candidate Cities – Los Angeles (USA) and Paris (France) the opportunity to present their proposals directly to IOC Members and International Federations, and offer any response to the Evaluation Commission report, prior to the 2024 host city election that will take place on 13 September during the 130th IOC Session in Lima, Peru.

Please note that the briefings made by the Candidate Cities to the IOC members on 11 July at the SwissTech Convention Center 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). A mixed zone will be established at the exit to the room where media will be able to interview delegates after their presentation.

On 12 July, each City will have a separate room in the SwissTech Convention Center, where it can display models, show bid videos, answer questions, etc. In the morning, IOC Members will visit each City’s presentation room from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The rooms will then be open to the media from 2 p.m.
