LAUSANNE, Switzerland – Commenting on the announcement from Dubai, Mr. Francesco Ricci Bitti, President of SportAccord Convention said: “SportAccord Convention is very disappointed that the Dubai Sports Council has decided not to host the 2016 Convention. Our understanding was that we were very close to an agreement. However, Dubai is not the only option for 2016 and we will start working immediately to secure an outstanding location for next year’s meeting.”
