»Summary Calendar/Open event bids

Each year, INAS works with its member nations to host an extensive programme of World and Regional Championship events.

Summary of forthcoming major events

Events are awarded through an open bid process, and hosting an event can have considerable benefits for the host nation. It’s a chance to showcase sport for athletes with an intellectual disability throughout your country, it’s a great way to build new partnerships including sponsors, the media, volunteers and supporters, and it’s a great way to share national traditions and culture with the rest of the World.

INAS will work with you to develop your bid, and if it’s successful, we will work with you at every step of the way to ensure a successful event with lasting legacy.
