MOVE Congress 2019 opens in Budapest

Game ON. The 9th MOVE Congress has opened in Budapest, where over 470 game-changers from around the world are gathering to share their secrets to getting more people active. And being the MOVE Congress, we don’t just talk the talk, we also walk the walk – or ride or jump, as the presidents of the host organisations did as they entered the Budapest Congress Center stage in style.

ISCA president Mogens Kirkeby and the Hungarian Student, University and Leisure Sports Federation president Gábor Balogh surprised the audience by arriving at the Pátria auditorium by scooter. Because this is no ordinary conference. And because, as physical activity promoters, that’s how they roll…

The action during the opening included an interactive skipping show led by skipping world champion Adrienn Bánhegyi, opening words from European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport Tibor Navracsics and four presentations from our brand new Innovation Alley.
