This year will see three days of targeted session under the theme of The Power of Sport to Drive World Health.

This edition will be a historic one with the IOC President Dr Thomas Bach, SportAccord Convention President Francesco Ricci Bitti and Sportaccord President Patrick Baumann opening the IF Forum, showcasing the unity between the IOC and SportAccord and SportAccord Convention.

Stephan Fox, AIMS President and SportAccord Vice President was quoted saying “The IF Forum is a perfect platform for knowledge sharing and meetings between the IFs and umbrella groups. This years one is also important as the IOC Commission meetings are at the same time.
