Held backstage, the Board of Directors meeting is scheduled for Sunday 2nd October, the ITTF Annual General Meeting for Tuesday 4th October.
Agreements having already been made with the local organising committees for Durban in 2023 and one year later in Busan; the current policy of holding the major meetings on the occasion of a World Championships will continue.
However, it was agreed that from 2025 the ITTF Annual General Meeting will be held as an event in its own right, not as traditionally on the occasion of a World Championships.
Hosting rights for the 2025 Annual General Meeting will be open for application.
A bidding process for member associations wishing to host the AGM will be published in due course. A member association delivering a World Championships may bid to host the AGM in the same year but not during the period of the tournament.
