Austrias President to open AIPS congress

30.9.2011 - President of the Republic of Austria, Dr. Heinz Fischer, will officially open next year’s AIPS 75th Anniversary Congress. This was confirmed by Sports Media Austria (SMA) President Michael Kuhn thursday at a meeting of the organizing committee and AIPS President Gianni Merlo and staff held in the Austria Trend Congress Hotel Innsbruck. Also attending the congress opening ceremony will be Minister of National Defense and Sport, Norbert Darabos, and the Governor of Tyrol, Guenther Platter.


AIPS goes new ways

Normally, AIPS Congresses take place between March and May. In 2012, however, the 75th Congress will take off in winter for the first time. Also, the Youth Olympic Winter Games – to be held from 13 to 22 January in Innsbruck and Seefeld – will take place at the same time. The two venues are therefore Olympic hosts already for the third time after the Olympic Winter Games of 1964 and 1976. By holding its Congress in the context of a major sporting event the AIPS goes new ways. A premiere during the third world congress in Austria after 1959 (Vienna) and 2007 (Bregenz).
