Both events will take place at the Sports Training Center Oberhaching near Munich in Germany. The venue is an excellent choice for our exhbition, AGM and workshops with a great Lobby, well equipped conference rooms and a warm atmosphere. Furthermore there are a lot of sports facilities (swimming hall, sauna, weight-training room, etc.) which you can use in the margins before and after the official program.
A community conference
This year, we would like to focus the event on all of us - the Ropes Course Community! The conference will be an excellent place to:
European Ropes Course Association (ERCA)
Our Association includes instructors, rescuers, trainers, builders and inspectors of ropes courses as well as organisations operating temporary ropes courses.
We update and optimise existing ERCA standards relating to construction, inspection, training and operation of ropes courses. We consider ERCA to be a basis for the exchange of knowledge, safety research and quality improvement.
Non-professionals like recreational climbers, visitors to forest adventure parks or group leaders searching for ropes course facilities will find interesting spots at our ropes course location map.
Teachers, parents or managers of educational programmes may be interested in our FAQ section with helpful answers regarding quality aspects, safety, supervision and more relevant topics for the high ropes course industry.
Our classifieds section is a useful source of information for those seeking employment or for more miscellaneous matters like training courses, equipment for sale or unusual events.
