This year’s ISM will put a real emphasis on the involvement of attendees, with many group discussions. We are keen to listen if you are ready to get involved in the debate! With the theme, ‘Future proofing the fitness sector – assuring quality in a diverse European environment’ we will emphasise the importance of securing the quality of the fitness industry workforce. The event takes place on 15 and 16 November in Warsaw, Poland.

It’s all about building a better future at this year’s International Standards Meeting (ISM). This annual conference has already become the most relevant occasion for cooperation in improving the education, recognition and social impact of exercise professionals, but we would like to take it all a step further.


"You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end, each of us must work for his own improvement, and, at the same time, share a general responsibility for all humanity."

Marie Curie, Polish-French physicist and chemist


Have your say

Inspired by Polish native Marie Curie we will focus on improving both individuals and the sector as a whole toward a healthier and more active European society. This year, involvement by delegates will be more important than ever. We’ve planned for small group discussions, offer extended networking possibilities and will ask our attendees to cook up a ‘recipe for the perfect training course’. Julian Berriman, the Director of the Professional Standards Committee, will also give an update on our (future) plans and bring the latest news on accreditation and Standards. 

Why not join us?

If you are a fitness education / training provider or an employer from the fitness industry, we would be delighted if you could join us in beautiful Warsaw. Limited places are available for suppliers and representatives of national associations. For more information and registration, please see our event webpage.
