Keeping pace with change in the sports and leisure industry can be a tough job whether in terms of technological developments, rules and regulations, new activities and equipment, facilities, participation initiatives or training techniques.
Which is why the seminar programme at the Sports & Leisure Forum is unmissable if you’re an operations or facilities manager from a gym chain, local authority, hotel, spa, wet/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, which takes place during Women’s Sport Week, will open with a keynote address and motivational session from a prominent inspirational sporting speaker, to get everyone focused on the day a head.
The seminars will then split into a choice of four sessions during the morning and afternoon. The first will look in detail at creating unique sports facility experiences to maintain and increase client retention. The second will analyse emerging trends in studio design and installation.
In the afternoon, delegates will have a choice of learning how to spot and develop personal trainer talent or cost advice and guidance towards 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 £250 million to get inactive people exercising, what are the benefits to individuals and the industry alike?
