About the MOVE Congress


About the MOVE Congress

The International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA) invites you to experience one of the world’s most dynamic conferences dedicated to sport and physical activity, the MOVE Congress, in Budapest, Hungary from 16-18 October 2019.

The MOVE Congress is one of the few conferences in the world that focuses solely on recreational sport and physical activity. The event gathers organisations and individuals who deliver initiatives at the grassroots level along with decision-makers, companies, urban planners, health experts, academics and other key stakeholders for three days of active networking.

Its innovative sessions have a unique focus on being physically active – so you can expect the unexpected, such as watching a speaker riding an exercise bike during their presentation, sitting on a fitness ball or showing you the active spaces in their city.

Taking this dynamic approach and getting conference participants out of their seats to move around ensures a great level of interaction and is a fun way to break the ice. And it might just help you establish your next successful partnership…

For a taste of what to expect, check out the highlights from the MOVE Congress in Rome and Birmingham below.


Change the Game: It’s your MOVE

If you’ve already experienced a taste of the MOVE Congress in Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Paris, Sao Paulo, Barcelona, Rome or Birmingham, you won’t want to miss the 9th edition, which promises to be the most interactive yet.

Get into the game by meeting speakers from across the world who are shaking up the grassroots sport and physical activity sector with effective campaigns, approaches, technologies and an extraordinary motivation to defuse the inactivity timebomb.

Join us to discover:

  How placemaking and technology are transforming the ways we choose to be active

  How action plans, campaigns and cross-sector initiatives are joining the dots between physical activity and health

  How gamification and innovative approaches to physical education and physical activity are getting more children moving

  How grassroots sport initiatives are paving the way for diplomacy within and across borders

  How you can build a case for funding from public, corporate and foundation sources

  How you will approach your next essential partner after you spot them in the auditorium!
