"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

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. The 2018 edition will put a real emphasis on the involvement of attendees, with many group discussions.

This year's theme is: ‘Future proofing the fitness sector – assuring quality in a diverse European environment’

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. 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. 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.
