25th International IAKS Congress 2017

7-10 November 2017

A top line-up of international experts: the 25th edition of the IAKS Congress once again guar-antees an attractive supporting programme at FSB 2017. On all four days, operators and planners will be discussing trends in architecture, best practice in the operation and management of sports facilities and solutions that enable athletic peak performance as well as introducing groundbreaking projects in sports infrastructure. This is where top decision makers from technical and operational management and from municipalities, planning offices, sports associations and sport clubs come in order to gather information.

With the awarding of the IOC/IPC/IAKS architecture prize, sports and leisure facilities that are examples of both good design and functional success will be rewarded. And the gala evening for this most important international architecture prize for sports, leisure and recreation facilities affords the supporting programme the appropriate touch of glamour.
