The SportAccord Convention in Bangkok was the perfect platform to establish new federations before and during the convention. The Bangkok Sport Festival was a major hit and sports like Fistball and Powerlifting, took not only the opportunity to participate but at the same time set the foundation to establish new National Federations. a special meeting took place between AIMS and the Royal Thai Government to brief all interested IFs on the procedure. The meeting was opened by AIMS President, Stephan Fox, thanking the Royal Thai Government on all their initiatives then the deputy governor of the Sport Authority of Thailand went through all the criteria with the interested sports.
