AGFIS news about itself:
GAISF rebranding and headquarters relocation
14 April 2009
The General Assembly decided on 27 March 2009 to change GAISF name to SportAccord.
President Hein Verbruggen noted: "We have made the change because we need a brand name. As an IF-organisation we handle a number of important projects and intend to organize major multi-sport events. We need a brand name for recognition of our Organization and to market our events, starting with the first Martial Arts & Combat Sports Games in 2010."
The SportAccord event itself would hereafter be known as The SportAccord Convention.
The headquarters will move from Monaco to Lausanne, with a new office located at the House of International Sport.
