The 2022 Winter Olympics, officially known as the XXIV Olympic Winter Games commonly known as Beijing 2022, is an international winter multi-sport event that will take place in Beijing and towns in the neighboring Hebei province, People's Republic of China, from 4 to 20 February 2022.
These games will be the first Winter Olympic Games ever held in China. Beijing was elected as the host city in July 2015 at the 128th IOC Session in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
With its previous hosting of the 2008 Summer Olympics, Beijing will be the first city to have ever hosted both the Summer and Winter Olympics; there are plans to utilize many of the same indoor venues that were used in 2008, as well as Beijing National Stadium as ceremonies venue. They will be the last of three consecutive Olympics being held in East Asia, following the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.
The mascot(s) for the 2022 Games will be unveiled in 2020.
