Members, business partners and friends of the IAKS appreciate the IAKS as its network for the industry. Once again, the IAKS fair stand at FSB served as a point of convergence for architects, sports facility operators and equippers for an informal exchange of views. Offering the Kölsch beer typical of Cologne and environs, the Happy Hour held daily from Tuesday to Thursday proved particularly popular.
The farthest-travelled visitors to the fair stand undoubtedly included the delegation of the Chinese Ministry of Sport that used the stand as its starting point for its tour of the halls. After visiting FSB, representatives of the Norwegian association “Bad, Park og Idrett“ inspected the Agrippabad pool and urban open spaces in Cologne. At the initiative of IAKS Switzerland, IAKS Nordic and IAKS Vice President Conrad Boychuk, members and friends of the IAKS organised regional meetings and relocated their discussion groups to nearby restaurants after their visit to the Congress and trade fair.
