Qualification systems for the Olympic and Paralympic Games, career progression of athletes in business and international movement of horses will be the main topics at the second International Equestrian Federation (FEI) Sports Forum in Lausanne, Switzerland April 8-9.

Round table sessions on Dressage, Driving and Jumping will also be organized within the framework of the event.

The Forum will be held at the International Institute for Management Development, a top-ranked business school that develops global leaders through high-impact executive education.

“The FEI Sports Forum is an essential platform for the FEI,” said FEI Secretary General Ingmar De Vos. “I encourage all the FEI stakeholders from around the world to join us in April and take part in the debate. The input generated at the Forum’s inaugural edition was extremely useful and helped us make quick progress in key areas such as the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup.

“I would like to thank IMD for making their facilities available to us. The FEI is privileged to be able to host these important discussions in such a prestigious and highly-ranked educational establishment.”

The FEI Sports Forum, part of the FEI President Princess Haya’s re-election manifesto, is an annual event.

Online registration for the FEI Sports Forum 2013 will open in mid-February. Supporting documents on which the discussions will be based will be published in March.
