International sports trade fair ISPO Munich kicks off this Sunday at the Messe München exhibition grounds, Germany. Now in its 49th year, this weekend will see ISPO Munich premiere its Indoor.Climbing.HUB, where IFSC President Marco Maria Scolaris and IFSC Consultant and former top athlete Charlotte Durif will give insight into Sport Climbing’s journey to Tokyo 2020 and beyond.
As Sport Climbing experiences a period of rapid growth, the Indoor.Climbing.HUB aims to explore key topics impacting our sport, bringing together significant stakeholders within the Sport Climbing industry to discuss the sport’s development and present tangible data for growth. IFSC President Marco Scolaris and Charlotte Durif, IFSC Consultant, will be amongst the hub’s programme of speakers, offering an overview of the Olympic format for Sport Climbing, questioning strategic considerations and deliberating potential post-Olympic opportunities that may arise as a result of the Tokyo 2020 Sport Climbing events.
“With the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games being only one year away, it is an extremely exciting time for the development of our sport,” says President Scolaris. “The IFSC is meticulously planning for the Games and anticipating the evolution of Sport Climbing post-2020. The Indoor.Climbing.HUB will be a great opportunity to meet with key figures in the Sport Climbing industry and prepare for the future of our sport, sharing expectations as well as concerns.”
President Scolaris and IFSC Consultant Charlotte Durif will speak as part of the Indoor.Climbing.HUB at ISPO Munich on Tuesday 5th February, 12.00pm.
