IOC completes briefing with 2020 bid cities

The six cities vying for the 2020 Olympics have completed a two-day IOC briefing on the bid process, including a shorter international campaign phase designed to cut down on spending.
Attending the closed-door sessions in Lausanne were delegates from Baku, Azerbaijan; Doha, Qatar; Istanbul, Turkey; Madrid; Rome; and Tokyo.
The International Olympic Committee called the meeting to explain the bidding process and rules as well as outline the scope and scale of hosting the games.
The IOC will choose the host city by secret ballot at its session in Buenos Aires on Sept. 7, 2013.
The cities must submit bid files to the IOC by Feb. 15. The IOC executive board will meet next May to decide whether to keep all six candidates or reduce the list.
