„Building resilient communities through sports and leisure facilities“ is the motto of the 2023 IAKS Congress being held this October 24-27, together with the FSB / aquanale trade fair duo, in Cologne, Germany.
If you haven't already secured your place at this year’s most important learning and networking event of the sports facility industry, then make sure to do so before the reduced rates close on August 31.
This year, the focus is on climate and environmental challenges, such as in the congress sessions "Today's design decisions and future-oriented programming" and "Reducing the carbon footprint". Other important trends and topics are "Well-Being", "Active Living", community-oriented design and inclusion. In this context, the upgrading and revitalisation of public space is playing an increasingly important role. Of course, the topic of "synthetic turf" also has its place in the congress programme. And a special session will take a look at the Australian market, where extensive programmes to support physical activity and sports facility investment are on the horizon on the way to the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Brisbane.
