Dear Skating Friends,

On behalf of the International Skating Union, it is a great pleasure for me to invite you to the 58th Ordinary ISU Congress. Your attendance and contribution to a successful meeting are very much appreciated.

The ISU Congress takes place on the beautiful island of Phuket (Thailand) in June 2020. At this inspiring location, we will discuss and decide upon new ideas to further develop and promote our beloved sport based on good governance.

This 2020 ISU Congress without elections includes a Forum. The main topic of the Forum will be ‘Best Practices’ for Event organization, with a focus on marketing and promotion.

I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to the Figure and Speed Skating Association of Thailand for their warm hospitality and hard work. I wish everybody a wonderful and memorable stay on Phuket.

Let us have a very fruitful ISU Congress and evolve worldwide all our beautiful and exciting skating disciplines together.

Jan Dijkema
ISU President
