  • WADA seeks host for its 2020 Global Education Conference


    The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is calling upon interested organizations and cities/countries to host WADA’s 2020 Global Education Conference toward the end of 2020.

    Similar to recent global education conferences, which WADA convened in 2015 (Ottawa, Canada) and 2018 (Beijing, China), the 2020 Global Education Conference will gather anti-doping researchers and practitioners from around the world to examine emerging trends; contribute to education program development; and, examine how Anti-Doping Organizations can enhance their programs while keeping the athlete at the center of their strategies.

    WADA asks organizations and cities/countries that are interested in submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI) to host the Conference to:

    Consult the linked document, which outlines the hosting criteria, decision-making process and timelines; and
    Submit an EOI, in English and/or French, by the deadline of Friday, 26 July 2019.
    The decision regarding the host will be taken six to eight weeks following the deadline.

    WADA thanks all its partners in advance for their consideration.
