For the first time, IAKS Nordic was represented with an exhibition stand at the event "Träffpunkt Idrott", Scandinavia's leading trade fair and conference for sports, pools and facilities, which took place in Gothenburg, Sweden, from 7 to 9 March 2023. The stand was very popular and offered the opportunity to get to know each other personally and refresh existing contacts. The numerous visitors informed themselves about the upcoming webinars and training offers for this year, as well as about the IAKS Nordic Strategic Plan 2023-2028.
On three days, the fair was the opportunity for making face-to-face contact with decision makers, influencers and innovators who buy or advise on equipment, materials and venues for all kind of sports, swimming, leisure, health, fitness activities, facilities and buildings.
The conference offered a wide-ranging programme of presentations over three days. IAKS Nordic was represented by numerous speakers, including André Flatner, Daniel Glimvert, Marina Högland, Casper Lindemann, Ola Mattsson, Lisa Mari Watson and Nils-Olof Zethrin. IAKS Nordic was also able to bring international expertise to Sweden in the form of speakers Karsten Dufft (German Olympic Sports Confederation), Michael Gross (Evaleo) and Mike Lawless (LA Architects).
The board members of IAKS Nordic used the opportunity for their spring board meeting on Tuesday and also invited numerous interested parties to get to know them personally at a business lunch on Thursday.
IAKS Nordic President André Flatner summed up delightedly: It was wonderful to see that we provided strong international speakers and made a solid contribution to the knowledge-sharing at the conference. It was also an eye-opener for me to spend time at the exhibition booth, and to experience the importance of being presence and talk to existing and future members. Thanks to everyone who attended Träffpunkt Idrott.“
