Following review of all bids, the Officers’ Council is delighted to be able to present three bidders for each Member Committee’s consideration. We extend our thanks to each of the bidders and their teams for their time, effort and commitment in submitting their bids and are gratified to have three possible host cities for the Congress. Based on the bid materials, third party advice, and additional dialogue with bidders, we are pleased to confirm that we view each bid as compliant with the essential requirements of being able to host a Congress and meet the general expectations of the Council, members and attendees.
