The office of the International Biathlon Union has been established in Salzburg, Austria, since 1993. As Salzburg is situated at a central place in Middle Europe, many venues of the sport of Biathlon, and a number of important partners from the media and economy as well, can be reached in a less than three hours drive.
In addition to very good traffic connections and a good general infrastructure, Austria offers a favourable environment needed by an international sports federation to exercise its various activities.
Competitions, preparatory training, activities regarding biathlon, meetings, conferences and decisions occur all year around all over the world.
The IBU Headquarters headed by the IBU Secretary General is responsible for a comprehensive and versatile catalogue of tasks in preparing and implementing the decisions made by the Congress, the Executive Boards and the various committees.
At the same time, the office acts all year long as the point of contact for the IOC, the international and national federations, organising committees, media representatives and other international sports authorities to pass on information to various target groups.
