Chefs de Mission in Buenos Aires
From April 23rd to 26th, Lausanne 2020 was in Argentina to attend the Chefs de Mission seminar sponsored by the Buenos Aires Organizing Committee in view of the 2018 Summer Youth Olympic Games' preparation. This event welcomed representatives from 200 National Olympic Committees (NOCs) who came to Buenos Aires to familiarize themselves with the city, the competition venues and the Youth Olympic Village. They also shared the latest information available on Games’ operations and services so that their teams are well prepared ahead of time for these Summer Youth Olympic Games.
For Lausanne2020, this was a unique opportunity to meet and establish contact with the various National Olympic Committees present at the event. Not only will they be bringing their young athletes to Buenos Aires in October 2018, but they will also be bringing them to Lausanne in January 2020. In addition to building working relationship with these key stakeholders, this was an opportunity for Lausanne2020 to exchange knowledge and learn from the Buenos Aires 2018 team in view of the preparation of the YOG 2020 Chef de Mission Seminar to be held in the Olympic Capital in 2019.
