Shanghai and Lausanne, Switzerland, were bidding for the event together with Stockholm, Sweden. However the Swedes already last week withdraw their bid. They are going for 2007 instead.

Shanghai and Lausanne both were present at the AGM with a large delegation of politicians and head staff from the city administrations who presented their facilities and organisation plans for the event.

Shanghai won with 78 votes against 31.
