    The IAKS is a global non-profit organization and source of information about planning, design and management of sports and leisure facilities.

    We gather the latest findings and in-depth experience from the fields of sports and leisure facilities and (outdoor) exercise spaces:

    • at the IAKS Congress held biennially in Cologne, Germany, together with FSB trade show
    • in international facility tours
    • in specialised seminars and further training events given by highly qualified experts
    • in expertises and documents on highly topical subjects, which can be retrieved online
    • in our specialist magazine sb which reports on exemplary architecture, innovations, products and services from the fields of leisure centres, sports facilities, swimming pools and wellness, stadiums and arenas.

    Our network is the meeting place for architects, engineers, clients, designers, local authorities, technical and operative management, sports federations and clubs!

    You’re enthusiastic about high-quality, functional and sustainable sports facilities? You appreciate cross-sector exchange among experts? You’re looking for or can provide forward-looking information on the design, construction and operation of sports and leisure facilities?

    If so, you’ll feel at home in the global IAKS network: for inspiration, solutions and a global forum – in existence since 1965!
