The dates of the eagerly awaited IAKS Study Trip to Vancouver (Canada) are confirmed: Participants, sports facility operators and partners can look forward to highly informative site visits with eight high-calibre sports and leisure facilities in the Greater Vancouver area.

Like the trips in 2018 (Copenhagen, Denmark) and 2019 (Hamburg, Germany), the 2022 IAKS Study Trip promises to be a magnificent experience offering a wealth of background information, exclusive insights and international networking.

  • Minoru Centre for Active Living (pool, multi-purpose seniors centre and athletics facility)
  • Richmond Olympic Oval (signature venue of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games turned into a multi-purpose international centre for sports competitions, recreation, health, wellness, and entertainment)

The participation fee is EUR 275 for IAKS members (EUR 345 for non-members) and includes the two-day tour with a coach and tour guide, lunch on both days of the event and a joint dinner on 14 June at selected restaurants. Cancellation free of charge is possible by 30 April 2022.
