Welcome by the FEI President and the FEI Secretary General
Dear esteemed colleagues, equestrian professionals and enthusiasts,
It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to attend the 11th edition of the FEI Sports Forum!
With the 2020 and 2021 editions of the FEI Sports Forum having to shift to a virtual format due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we missed out on important face-to-face discussions.
But this year we are finally going to be able to conduct this important in-person meeting, at the prestigious IMD Business School here in Lausanne.
This year also marks the 100 year anniversary of the FEI and our tag line, “Shaping the future together,” is all the more relevant as we come together as a community to discuss, debate and plan the future of equestrian sport.
The FEI Sports Forum 2022 will open with discussions on the Paris 2024 Olympic & Paralympic Games Regulations, with specific sessions dedicated to Jumping, Eventing, Dressage and Para Dressage. This is an important phase in the wide-ranging Paris 2024 consultation process and we look forward to your active participation and contribution.
Forum attendees will also have an opportunity to hear progress reports from the Organising Committees of the FEI World Championships 2022 in Herning (DEN), Pratoni del Vivaro and Verona (ITA), and learn about the digital campaigns and collaborative tools that will be used to engage fans worldwide.
Day two will begin with a discussion on FEI Event Standards, a project that aims to identify core technical aspects of FEI events and develop systems to ensure that the delivery of these meets the expectations of all our stakeholders. The results of the survey that was conducted in this regard will be presented to inform this discussion.
The rest of the day will be devoted to the full revision of the FEI Veterinary, Eventing, Dressage and Para Dressage rules. Supporting documents will be published online as guidance for these sessions, and, as always, constructive dialogue will be welcomed.
Following last year’s session dedicated to Grooms, we are pleased to announce that the official signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the FEI and the International Grooms Association will also take place during this year’s meeting. This is an important milestone for the Grooms community, who play a vital role in our sport and are crucial for the welfare of our horses.
As for every edition of the Sports Forum, you will find all the information you need on this platform including a detailed timetable, information on each of the sessions, key deadlines, contact information, travel, accommodation and fees for registration.
We look forward to seeing you in Lausanne in April and to having interesting discussions that will continue to serve the best interest of our community.
