The name IAKS comes from the International Organization for Sports and Leisure Facilities and is a non-profit organization devoted to sports buildings and leisure centers. The IAKS was founded in Cologne in 1965 and has about 1.000 members in 110 countries splitted in the following 7 sections: Germany, Japan, Latin America/Caribbean, Poland, Russia, Switzerland and Spain.
We as company Ice Business participated also at the 2015 edition, together with our partner IceWorld IceBusiness, like we do since many years now. The event took place between the 28th and 30th of April in Willingen and was as always full of useful information regarding the ice administration sector. We were also exhibitors amongst other companies so we prepared and brought useful materials that are important for the ice rink operation in an ice arena, like our catalogue and the newest added products in our range.
One of the highlights of the conference was the presentation of Mr. Klaus Meinel, with the title ”The position of the rink manager between different Sport and User Groups: conflict potential and solutions”. Other presentations, seminars, learning circles and debates plus live demonstrations of ice resurfacing (ice resurfacing machines and ice edger) also took place during the 3 days of the conference.
