Aachen Symposium To Support Growth In Jumping Competitions

The FEI, CHIO Aachen and Aachen School of Course Design (ASCD) are collaborating for the first time on a two-day Symposium, where vital expertise and knowledge will be shared to support the growth and success of national, regional, FEI 1* and 2* competitions around the world.

The Symposium - entitled “How to develop, organise and sustain national and regional Jumping Events”– will be held at Hotel Novotel in Aachen (GER) on 18-19 July 2011.

The event represents a unique opportunity to engage with leading figures in event organisation from around the world.

Speakers from the FEI, CHIO Aachen, ASCD and specialists from ten countries - Belgium, Brazil, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates and the USA – will come together to deliver invaluable insights into successful event organisation.

Topics covered will include:

  • developing appropriate event concepts
  • sharing experience on successful event organisation
  • how to sustain events into the future

The Symposium will be of major benefit to organisers of events in all equestrian disciplines, with special focus given to Jumping.

Discussion sessions, networking opportunities and a gala dinner on the 18 July 2011 will make this Symposium interactive and there will be plenty of opportunities to meet experts and specialists and exchange ideas.

The Symposium is being hosted by the FEI, ASCD and CHIO Aachen in co-operation with the Alliance of Jumping Organisers (AJO).
