The IAKS UK Spring Event is a great opportunity to discuss the development of community sports facilities, using the backdrop of the venues in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic Games to explore the challenges in developing facilities that encourage participation. This networking event is bringing together clients, operators and designers to discuss the design and operation of sports and leisure facilities that can benefit communities and increase participation, as well as working towards the ambition set out by the UK Government to work towards an active nation.
The event will take place in venues in both the north and south parts of the Olympic Park and will include contributions from the London Legacy Development Corporation LLDC, Lee Valley Leisure Park Authority and Greenwich Leisure Limited. This will provide an insight into the past, present and future of the Queen Elizabeth Park, as well as the issues involved in optimising participation in the Olympic venues after the Games.
The programme for the day aims to include both building visits and seminars, as well as an opportunity to explore the park, as the delegates will move from the Hockey and Tennis Centre in the North Park to the Aquatic Centre in the South Park.
