The seventh edition of the IF Forum will once again take place in Lausanne, Switzerland from November 4-6, 2013. The two and a half day event consists of workshops, case studies and problem-solving initiatives. This event is only open to International Federation members, participating speakers, and event partners.

Conceived as a way for sports governing bodies -- large and small, winter and summer, Olympic and non-Olympic -- to come together to learn from each other as well as from industry experts, the event is now a regular and popular event on the Federation calendar, attracting members from all over the world.

A steering committee of Federation representatives, from a variety of sports, creates the program each year, ensuring that the content focuses on issues and challenges that are currently affecting all sports. The Forum is organized by SportAccord Convention, in conjunction with SportAccord, the Association of Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF) and the Association of Winter Olympic International Federations (AIOWF), with the support of the City of Lausanne and the Canton of Vaud.
