The TAFISA World Congress returns this year to Düsseldorf, Germany! The main theme of the next congress will be “Sport for All: More together than ever”.

The 28th version of the TAFISA World Congress is organised by the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB), the State Government of North Rhine-Westphalia, the regional sports confederation of North Rhine-Westphalia and TAFISA.

The congress will take place in Düsseldorf, the state capital of North Rhine-Westphalia. Düsseldorf is a liveable and loveable, modern and multicultural, traditional and tolerant city in Germany. It is also one of Germany’s most fashion-conscious destinations and a truly sports city with many professional sports teams and a wide range of sports opportunities. Düsseldorf is part of the Rhine-Ruhr area, the largest urban area in Germany.
