**A maximum of three (3) registrations per company will be allowed.

Note also that a registration fee of CHF 200.- per participant will automatically apply to any participants in excess of the official number permitted, and for any participants from a country that has not adhered to the UNESCO International Convention on Doping in Sport, or an organisation that has been declared not to be in compliance with the World Anti-Doping Code, or that has not paid its annual dues to WADA.

Athlete Participants

The World Anti-Doping Agency strongly encourages the participation of athletes to the Symposium. An athlete is any member of an Anti-Doping Organization’s athlete committee (or commission) or of another athlete representative body. Administrators from such bodies cannot be considered as athletes and have to register as paying participants.

Access to the athlete dedicated session will be exclusively for athletes and administrators of athlete representative bodies.

Registration Deadline

The registration deadline is 26 February 2020.

For registrations received after the deadline, participation cannot be guaranteed. A registration fee of CHF 400.- will be automatically applied to any post-deadline registration.


For security and logistical reasons, individuals who have not registered online and who have not received an electronic confirmation of their registration will not be granted access to the Symposium.


A maximum of two (2) participants per country that has adhered to the UNESCO International Convention on Doping in Sport, or from an organisation that is in compliance with the World Anti-Doping Code can register on a complimentary basis. If an organisation wishes to register more than two participants, a registration fee of CHF 200.- per additional participant will automatically apply to subsequent registrants.

Registrations placed after the deadline of 26 February 2020 will be charged a registration fee of CHF 400.-.

Participants must cover their own travel, ground transfers, hotel accommodation and miscellaneous expenses.

Registration cancellation should be made in writing to the attention of Ms. Angélique Crettenand.

WADA reserves the right to refuse admission to future Symposia to persons who register for the 2020 Annual Symposium but do not show up. We therefore kindly ask that, should plans change prior to the Symposium, Ms. Angélique Crettenand be advised in writing as soon as possible.
