25th 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.

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

The 2017 IAKS Congress program will feature a number of sessions allowing for presentation, round-table discussions and workshops. Participation by experts in planning, design, construction and operations will help foster an international exchange about new ideas and strategies, and facilitate a meaningful and insightful transfer of knowledge.
