Branch Offices Closes 28/08/2017

Txus, Lidia and German

The World DanceSport Federation (WDSF) wishes to inform the parties concerned that its Spanish office in Sant Cugat, Barcelona, will be closed down effective from 31 August 2017.

After tending to the day-to-day business simultaneously from the headquarters in Switzerland and the branch office in Spain for nearly one year, the Managing Committee has decided to unite all operations at the headquarters in Lausanne.

The Spanish phone and fax numbers will no longer be valid, the postal address will return to sender and determined email accounts will cease to exist. Anybody wishing to contact WDSF from 31 August 2017 must do so exclusively through the headquarters at the following address and numbers.

Maison du Sport International
Avenue de Rhodanie 54
1007 – Lausanne

TEL +41 21 601 17 11

FAX +41 21 601 17 12

Based on the revised Switzerland-based structure, the responsibilities are assigned to either individuals or groups that can be reached directly by email.
