MONTREAL, February 14, 2018 - The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) wishes to remind you that the deadline to register for Day 1 of WADA’s 2018 Annual Symposium, which is being held from 21-23 March 2018 at the SwissTech Convention Center (STCC) in Lausanne, Switzerland is 26 February 2018.
WADA's 2018 Annual Symposium will once again gather the global anti-doping community for three days of presentations, interviews, panel discussions, practical workshops and networking sessions. Athlete representatives, International Federations, government representatives, National Anti-Doping Organizations, Major Event Organizers, WADA-accredited laboratories and Athlete Passport Management units as well as media and other stakeholders, are invited to gather under the theme "Shaping the Future of Clean Sport".
As outlined in the draft Agenda, Day 1 will focus on how the anti-doping community can best shape its future and that of clean athletes – whether that be by learning from the doping scandals of the past two years; ensuring accountability for all with the new International Standard on Code Compliance; by considering what more can be done to enhance global anti-doping quality; and through a host of other means.
At the end of Day 1, members of the media are invited to attend a press conference with WADA President, Sir Craig Reedie and Director General, Olivier Niggli; following which, both will be available for one-on-one interviews.
To register, please visit the Symposium Website where, in addition to the draft Agenda, you will find other useful information; including, how to register and how to book your hotel accommodations.
For one-on-one interview requests, please contact Maggie Durand, Manager, Media Relations and Communications at Maggie.firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that while we will do our utmost to accommodate as many requests as possible, we cannot guarantee that every outlet will receive a one-on-one slot. We thank you in advance for your understanding in this regard.
WADA looks forward to welcoming all of its stakeholders in Lausanne for, what promises to be, fruitful discussions leading to positive outcomes for clean sport.
