2020 IAKS Study Trip postponed to 29-30 September

The 2020 IAKS Study Trip has been, in consultation with its partners and guides, postponed from 26-27 May to 29-30 September. Due to the escalation of COVID-19 and travel restrictions, and recognising the current very fluid situation that we all find ourselves in, we decided to reschedule the event that will lead us to Greater Vancouver area.

The new promising agenda remains the same as in May and includes all of the innovative sports and leisure facilities featured in the original program. We would like to thank our partners, guides and the venue operators for their flexibility.

We trust that the 2020 IAKS Study Trip in September will offer the same great experience, insights and networking and make it another valuable activity, such as the IAKS Study Trips in previous years, to Copenhagen/Denmark and Hamburg/Germany.


Meet the architects and operators of these facilities:

Edmonds Community Center (multi-generational and multi-service recreation centre), Grandview Heights Aquatic Centre (world-class aquatic centre for competition and recreation with inclusive and universal access), Clayton Community Centre (futuristic community centre, combining recreation, library, arts and parks), Westminster Pier Park (downtown waterfront park and public space), Hillcrest Centre (rejuvenation of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Curling Venue), Delbrook Community Recreation Centre (healthy space with views to nature: pools, racquet sport courts, fitness centre), University of British Columbia Aquatic Centre (serving athletic training, competition, and neighbourhood leisure needs) as well as the Richmond Olympic Oval (signature venue of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games turned into multipurpose international centre for sports competitions, recreation, health, wellness, and entertainment).
