Keeping pace with change in the sports and leisure industry can be a tough job, in terms of keeping up with technological developments, rules and regulations, new equipment, facilities, participation initiatives or training techniques.

This is why the seminar programme at the Sports & Leisure Forum is unmissable if you’re an operations or leisure and facilities manager from a gym chain, local authority, hotel, spa, awet/leisure centre or stadium.

Learning and professional development is high on the agenda throughout the event, which takes place on June 19th & 20th 2017 at the Radisson Blu London Stansted Hotel, focused on an intimate audience of just 45 VIP delegates and the industry’s most trusted suppliers.

The two-day seminar programme, hosted by industry thought leaders, comprises keynotes and panel sessions addressing issues in the above areas and more.

The first day of the event will be hosted by gold medallist gymnast Beth Tweddle. Now a director of Switch The Play and Total Gymnastics, Tweddle will be sharing her experience of life as an elite athlete.

A packed schedule
Following this, delegates will have a choice of four sessions across the morning and afternoon. The first session will look at how to create unique sports facility experiences that maintain and increase client retention. The second will analyse emerging trends in studio design and installation.

In the afternoon, delegates will have a choice between learning how to spot and develop personal trainer talent or a session on cost advice and guidance on building long-lasting, high-quality sports facilities.

Day two kicks off with an in-depth look at how health and fitness operators can grow their business using the very latest technology, covering everything from wearable trackers and virtual classes to shared member data and AR.

Rounding the two days off will be a highly-interactive panel session addressing the future of sport and physical activity in the UK – with Sport England spending £250m to get inactive people exercising, what are the benefits to individuals and the industry alike?

Unrivalled networking
Confirmed Sports & Leisure Forum delegates include 1Life, ACS Cobham International School, Active4Today, Arsenal FC, Balance Health Clubs & Spa, Base-Fit UK, City of Lincoln Council, City of York Council, Crystal Palace FC, Ealing Council, Erith School, Lordswood Leisure Centre, Purbeck District Council, Rendcomb College, Saracens RFU, Sport England, Sylvestrian Leisure Centre, The Hurlingham Club, Virgin Active and more.

In terms of format, the Forum offers a bespoke itinerary for each delegate and supplier, full of pre-matched meetings and an unrivalled amount of networking over lunches, coffee breaks and dinner.

So if you’re an industry professional or supplier looking to meet and network with senior executives and managers from across the fitness spectrum, contact event manager Gillian Small on 01992 374073 email at: g.small@forumevents.co.uk or visit www.sportsandleisureforum.co.uk.
