This year’s International Federation (IF) Forum took place on 28-30 October 2019 at the Hotel Royal Savoy in Lausanne, Switzerland. The 13th edition of the IF Forum offered three days of targeted thematic sessions designed to be of specific value to the International Sport Federations' in attendance. Julien Babel was delegated from the FIFG for the forum.
Before the start of the event, GAISF Council held a meeting and decided to renew the position of the FIFG as an observer for a further two years. FIFG was granted the observer status two years ago and has worked since then hardly to progress in its development towards fulfilment of all criteria required for GAISF full membership.
The GAISF Council has also renewed the observer status of World Dodgeball Association, the International Union of Kettlebell Lifting, the International Federation of Match Poker, the International Pole Sports Federation and the International Table Soccer Federation.
The International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) and the International Rafting Federation (IRF) were also officially granted Observer Status.
