More than 1,000 representatives are expected to attend, including presidents and secretaries general of all 206 National Olympic Committees, the ANOC Executive Council, as well as representatives from International Federations and future Organizing Committees of the Olympic Games.
The meeting – which is the largest event for the Olympic Movement outside of the Olympic Games – will mark the first of its kind to be held in the United States since Atlanta hosted the event in 1994.
The XX ANOC General Assembly in Washington, D.C. was the largest in ANOC’s history attracting more than 1,200 delegates from 204 NOCs.
In addition to representatives from the world’s NOCs, the two-day meeting was attended by IOC President Thomas Bach and the IOC, representatives from International Federations (IFs), Organising Committees of the upcoming Olympic Games and representatives from the Olympic Stakeholder as WADA and CAS.
The General Assembly showcased the power of sport to unite the world and also highlighted the importance of all members of the Olympic Family working together for the benefit of the Olympic Movement. The General Assembly gave ANOC the opportunity to update the NOCs on their latest progress and ensure that they all had a voice in the future of the Association.
