IAKS Congress

IAKS will be holding its 25th international congress for the design, construction, modernization and management of sports and leisure facilities on the occasion of the FSB Trade Fair in Cologne from 7 to 10 November 2017. Both events are devoted to link global trends with developments of the industry.

The planning, development and operations of both new and expanded sports and leisure facilities has never been more challenging or faced as many contradictions. Various levels of government search for ways to provide the level of funding appropriate for maintaining and developing healthy communities. Municipal governments in particular are facing greater complexities and obstacles in providing appropriate facilities and programs.

In 2017, the IAKS congress is focusing on the difficulties municipal governments in particular face as they try to maintain a healthy population. Read more about new approaches to funding, project delivery and sustainable operations which are critical to address this challenging shift.
