Olympic Games Executive Director Gilbert Felli and Head of Bid City Relations Jacqueline Barrett received the files from the three delegations, which will now prepare for on-site inspections by the IOC Evaluation Commission, chaired by IOC Vice-President Sir Craig Reedie, in March.
After analysing the Candidature Files, the Commission will travel to Tokyo from 4 to 7 March, Madrid from 18 to 21 March and Istanbul from 24 to 27 March. It will then release a technical assessment of the Candidate Cities to coincide with the 2020 Candidate Briefing for IOC Members on 3 and 4 July 2013 in Lausanne. Each Candidate City will deliver a final 45-minute presentation to the 125th IOC Session ahead of the vote on 7 September 2013 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
 Cities are listed in the order of drawing of lots.
