|THE XXth OLYMPIC WINTER GAMES|
The selection of the host city took place immediately after the two finalist cities, Turin and Sion, were selected. The vote was put to the full IOC Session by secret ballot which was televised for the first time. It is significant that the election of the Selection College, the designation of two finalist cities and the election of the host city all took place immediately after one another on the same day.

It is also advisable to notice the absence of official program and that since the 1st Gaqmes in Chamonix and finally, one of the official supplier offered a product on the summer Games of Monaco in 1972.
