It had been on the agenda for quite a while but we eventually made it happen in 2014: a trip to the two upcoming pigeon racing countries India and Bangladesh. We had a three day stay in both the two countries, to learn more about the sport and to visit some of our PIPA clients.
A group from PIPA (Luna, Green, Jianming, Ian, Gary, Nikolaas,...) visited China for about 2 weeks. We had a great time. It was so nice to see many clients back.
November 2014. Nikolaas, Luna, Maggie & Shuping from PIPA, together with Bart Geerinckx visited some important clients in Taiwan. We were received very well and therefore would like to thank everybody for their enormous hospitality.
PIPA made another trip to China at the end of November to visit the pigeon exhibitions of Langfang and Wuhan and to meet several of our PIPA clients in person.
The AU organised their yearly convention in the Gulfcoast Homing Pigeon Club in the Sunshine State Florida. Their 103rd convention was a great success.

During the weekend of 19 and 20 October, Nikolaas Gyselbrecht, CEO and founder of PIPA, was invited by his friend Mr. Florea Sorin to come to Bucharest.

At the beginning of 2013 I was invited by the Northern Jutland pigeon club in Hjørring (Denmark) to come over in October and talk about my life as a pigeon fancier. This happened during the weekend of 12 October.
