2016 International Standards Meeting

Shaping the future of Exercise Professionals

We are delighted to announce the 7th International Standards Meeting (ISM) will be held at the Hotel Titania, Athens, Greece on the 17th - 18th November 2016.

A must attend event for training providers and owner/operators of health & fitness centres.

The annual International Standards Meeting has already become the most relevant occasion for cooperation in the worldwide fitness sector with an agreed global approach to improve education, recognition and social impact of exercise professionals and the fitness sector worldwide. This event brings together key stakeholders from the fitness industry including employers, training providers, suppliers, national associations and the representatives of national registers of exercise professionals from across Europe and around the globe for lively debate in an open and inspirational environment.

This is a unique opportunity to meet with a selected team of experts in an open and inspirational environment to discuss strategies on how to communicate and implement the standards and to ensure the European health & fitness sector remains at the cutting edge of professional development.

The ISM 2016 will also include a full social programme including a guided tour of the old city and a private dinner in a restaurant with a great view of the Acropolis and the rest of this beautiful and historic city.
