BREAKING NEWS: Budapest to host MOVE Congress in October 2019

Together with our Hungarian partner the National School, University and Leisure Sport Federation, we are pleased to reveal today that Budapest will host the ninth MOVE Congress from 16-18 October 2019. 

The MOVE Congress is one of the world’s only conferences dedicated to recreational sport and physical activity. Next year’s event is expected to be the biggest yet, offering unmatched opportunities for 500 participants spanning six continents and sectors including health, sport, education, international relations and urban planning to meet and discover new ways of working together on physical activity promotion.

Registration will open in March 2019, and the first keynote speakers will be revealed in January. The conference will be held at the Budapest Congress Centre.

Creating Moving People - building blocks and angles  

"I have the opportunity to give presentations about sport participation in a variety of international and national contexts. All situations are different but one illustration is useful when trying to frame the common challenge. In settings where the aim is to promote physical activity and recreational sport – even though the cultural, political, social and economic situations may be different – we all have the same ‘building blocks’ at hand and some angles of attack."
