JEROEN VAN LIEMPD

Managing Director, IHRSA Europe, BELGIUM

“The IHRSA European Congress in Madrid was great! The presentations were incredibly valuable at the strategic, tactical, and operational level. The event was also well organized—the accommodations, the location in the centre of Madrid, not far from the airport, etc. Given this experience, I intend to visit the Congress again next year. Thank You IHRSA.”

– Petro Hameleers, Owner, Anytime Fitness Benelux, The Netherlands
