Earlier this month, Lausanne 2020 along with other Swiss sports and tourism organisations visited Beijing to discuss collaboration opportunities between swiss sport and, amongst others, the Beijing 2022 organizing committee.
A Swiss delegation which included Lausanne 2020 organising committee’s CEO Ian Logan, visited Beijing’s “World Winter Sports Expo 2017” to discuss collaboration opportunities between the two Olympic cities of Lausanne and Beijing which will be the host of the 2022 edition of the Winter Olympic Games. The discussions evolved around innovation, sustainability and legacy aspects. A round table discussion also focused on how winter sports can best benefit youth.
Lausanne 2020 is delighted by the constructive exchange and excellent collaboration between the two organizing committees, which is taking place in the context of 2017’s China-Switzerland tourism year, and is pleased to set up practical initiatives for exchange of knowledge.
