FILEX Moving Forward Summit 1 and 2 May 2020 – virtual event.

Australasia’s leading fitness convention FILEX has announced their new virtual offering, the FILEX Moving Forward Summit. The new two-day online event, powered by Fitness Australia, will be held on Friday 1 and Saturday 2 May 2020. With the whole fitness industry scrambling to deal with the huge challenges it is being confronted with, FILEX has recognised that now, more than ever, the industry requires leadership and support as well as the opportunity to reconnect, reengage education, and reenergise so that together it drives professionals, businesses and careers forward.

The organisation had anticipated a reschedule of the May Convention for later in the year, however as a result of the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic and further bans and industry disruption, the organisers of the annual event, which has been running for over 30 years, made the difficult but quick decision to go virtual. The Summit will provide fitness professionals support with topics and content focussed on helping drive the industry onward and upward through the crisis.

Featuring world-class international presenters and industry leaders, as well as panel discussions and even a virtual cocktail party, attendees at the action-packed online conference will also be able to attain 10 CECs. Industry leading partners Les Mills Asia Pacific and Myzone will also continue to support FILEX in 2020 and into 2021.

A FILEX spokesperson said:

“The Moving Forward Summit will also offer the industry the ability to connect and network online while we aren’t able to do it face-to-face, ensuring that we stay connected and together as a community. Competition for now has been put to the side while we ride this wave together and get to the other side stronger and more united than ever before.”

Fitness Australia will launch a series of celebratory virtual events to announce the winners of the 2020 Australian Fitness Awards, starting with a virtual cocktail party on Friday 1st May from 6 – 7pm, as part of the Moving Forward Summit. In the weeks following the FILEX Summit, Fitness Australia will host further virtual celebratory events to announce each of the category winners. More information to come.

For those that missed out on registering for the Convention, tickets are available to be purchased. The action-packed two-day event, will offer huge value and highly relevant content at a very competitive price.
