The LEN Congress held at Lake Garda (ITA) approved the LEN Bureauâ€™s proposal to move the organisationâ€™s headquarters from Luxembourg (LUX) to Geneva (SUI). LEN President Paolo Barelli presented his vision on LEN stepping into an extensive development period from the summer of 2015.
At the annual Congress held at Lake Garda (ITA) delegates of the LEN member federations approved the LEN Bureauâ€™s proposal to move the organisationâ€™s headquarters from Luxembourg (LUX) to Geneva (SUI). As LEN President Paolo Barelli and Executive Director Paulo Frischknecht underlined this step would put the organisation to an even better environment.
â€œSeveral major sport federations â€“ including FINA â€“ set up their respective HQs in Switzerland just as some of LENâ€™s main partners. For instance Eurovision is also settled in Geneva, which is a more accessible location for most of the federations and officials and some financial aspects also pushed us to take this wise stepâ€ LEN President Paolo Barelli said.
