FIB participated in IF Forum in Lausanne.
Hundreds of global sports leaders and industry experts gathered at the Olympic Museum in Lausanne for the three-day International Federation (IF) Forum which was held between 13-15 November 2023. FIB was represented by Mr. Attila Adamfi, Acting General Secretary and Vice President.
Before the start of the IF Forum, the Association of IOC Recognized International Sport Federations (ARISF) held its General Assembly, where the renewed Statutes were approved by the Members, and a new Strategic Plan was discussed.
The IF Forum was opened by International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach who emphasized the importance of unity amongst the IFs and the sport and business community given an increasingly complex international landscape. Over the three days IF Forum, thematic sessions were offered to delegates on such important topics as strategies that have improved gender equity in sport, examples of how IFs have used technology to grow their audience and revenue as well as sustainability.
Among many other meetings with the representatives of the Olympic movement and global sport delegates, the General Secretary met WADA in order to discuss the next steps after the conclusion of the WADA Code Compliance procedures.
