IVO President Olav Toornend cordially invites everyone from the pedorthic industry to visit the ORTHOPÄDIE SCHUH TECHNIK trade fair and the IVO Congress in Cologne on October 14-15, 2022:

We have waited three years to meet in person once again to exchange ideas and see what is happening in the field of pedorthics. C. Maurer Fachmedien, the Zentralverband Orthopädieschuhtechnik (ZVOS) and the International Association for Orthopaedic Shoe Technicians (IVO) welcome you all to the ORTHOPÄDIE SCHUH TECHNIK trade fair on October 14 and 15 in Cologne.

The congress program and the fair will present you the latest developments in this field. Although we did not have the opportunity to meet, the companies have continued to innovate and develop their products and services. And they are ready to show it!

At the international congress, speakers from all over the world will be present to inform you about various topics. There will be translation in English, French and German. So there is no reason to stay away because of language barriers.

As this is my first year as president and therefore also my first international congress, I am very excited and looking forward to meeting and (re)connecting with many people.

For the first time, the IVO Award will be granted at the congress. Let yourself be surprised. I would be very pleased to welcome many of you at the award ceremony on Friday, October 14, 2022 at 5:30 pm in the Forum in the exhibition hall.

See you in Cologne!

Olav Toornend
President IVO
