Meet these game-changers (and many more!) at the MOVE Congress

The 9th MOVE Congress is just around the corner and from 16-18 October we will gather with our members, partners and guest speakers from around the world for 3 active days of networking. Tickets are still available - but hurry, registration closes soon!

Register here (ISCA members please email us for your special discount code)

In our day-to-day work in our associations, federations or regular workplaces it’s not often we get a chance to rub shoulders with TV stars, decision-makers from the World Health Organisation, UNESCO, the EU Sport Unit, successful campaign managers, former athletes, fitness gurus and TEDx speakers. But at conferences, anything is possible! That’s why we are gathering the most high-profile speakers for our MOVE Congress 2019 programme.

Who can you meet in Budapest this October? 
Pictured clockwise above: Magnús Scheving (LazyTown star Sportacus), Darryl Edwards (TEDx speaker 'Why Working Out Isn't Working Out'), Markos Aristides Kern (Sport-Tech Innovator) and Kate Dale (Lead of This Girl Can Campaign).
