The 134th IOC Session is an upcoming IOC Session which will be held in Milan, Italy in 2019.[1] However, if an Italian bid for the 2026 Winter Olympics makes it past the candidature phase, the session will be moved to the IOC headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland, which will allow either Milan, Cortina d'Ampezzo (which hosted the 1956 Winter Olympics) or Turin (which hosted the 2006 Winter Olympics) to bid for the 2026 games.[2]


Milan was the sole bidder to host the 134th IOC Session and was elected in a unanimous vote at the 131st IOC Session in Lima in September 2017.
