Event Adviser Clinics coming up

Posted on | November 16, 2017 | Category: News

A vital part of IOF Event Quality is the Event Adviser. Each year, a number of discipline specific clinics are held to educate new Event Advisers. Here is an overview of upcoming clinics.


The first upcoming clinic is a TrailO clinic taking place in Hong Kong 8-10 December 2017. The clinic is organised by the Orienteering Association of Hong Kong, with Owe Fredholm (IOF Council member) acting as course leader. The clinic takes place in conjunction with the Hong Kong TrailO Championships, offering a great opportunity for observing and learning from an ongoing event. The entry deadline for this clinic is 25 November, so if you fancy a trip to Hong Kong this December, hurry up and register!

You can find more information in the invitation and entry form.


In FootO, the next clinic taking place is a clinic in Milan, Italy, 16-17 December 2017. The clinic is organised by the IOF Rules Commission, and will be led by David Rosen, chairperson of the IOF Rules Commission, and Tulla Spinelli, Senior Event Adviser. The entry deadline is 26 November, so make sure to register soon!

The following FootO clinic takes place in Sarpsborg, Norway, 3-4 March 2018. It is organised by the IOF FootO Commission together with the Norwegian Orienteering Federation, with course leaders Unni Strand Karlsen, Øivind Holt and Jan Arild Johnsen taking charge of the teaching. This clinic is also open for experienced organisers who want to play major roles in organising future high level IOF events (WOC and WCup) but who do not necessarily want to become an Event Adviser.

Invitations and entry forms for the FootO EA Clinics can be found here.


There will be two SkiO EA clinics this winter. The first will be held in connection with the European Ski Orienteering Championships (ESOC), in Velingrad, Bulgaria, 4-6 February 2018. Course leader Roland Hellberg from the IOF Ski Orienteering Commission and ESOC Event Director, Todor Pedev, welcome you to Velingrad.

Another opportunity is during the IOF World Cup and World Masters Event in Craftsbury Vermont, USA. The Clinic will be held 6-8 March. Roland Hellberg from the IOF Ski Orienteering Commission and Event Directors Edward Despard and Adrian Owens, welcome you to Craftsbury.

Invitations and entry forms can be found here.

High Level Event Seminar

In addition, the 2018 IOF High Level Event Seminar will be held on 3-4 February in Riga, Latvia. This seminar, organised annually since the start in 2009, has become an important event, each year attracting 50-80 participants from about 15-20 member federations. The seminar targets appointed organisers, potential future organisers and key persons of IOF High Level Events, including already appointed IOF Senior Event Advisers and Assistant Senior Event Advisers. The invitation and registration information for the 2018 HLES will be published soon!
