25th IAKS Congress

The 25th international IAKS Congress on Nov 7 to10, 2017 attracted over 400 visitors and delegations from 39 countries and provided outstanding opportunities for top-level international networking between experts and decision-makers. FSB and the IAKS Congress demonstrated emphatically that they are the world’s foremost business and communication hub of the international sports facility and leisure industry – and hence an invaluable source of ideas and inspiration.

Experts from Europe, Canada, the USA, Russia and Australia presented the global trends in future sports and leisure facilities. These include the growing importance of the multi- functionality of exercise spaces for life-style activities, a stronger focus on universal, accessible design for an ageing society, and the commitment to sustainable construction for the achievement of climate protection targets.
