For fitness industry professionals interested in technology, the Fitness & Recreation Industry Technology Summit in Sydney, Australia, is something you don’t want to miss.

To strengthen and unify the global health and fitness industry, IHRSA, The Global Health & Fitness Association, has partnered with the Fitness & Recreation Industry Technology Summit.

After a successful inaugural event in 2019 and numerous COVID setbacks, the 2022 date is set and promises to be bigger and better. The two-day educational event will be held February 22nd and 23rd, at Dockside, Cockle Bay Wharf in Sydney, Australia.

The regions only technology summit aims to show attendees how to improve fitness-related businesses’ efficiency, effectiveness, and profitability using technology. During the Summit, attendees will learn how collected data displays how customers think, what they do, and what they want.

John Holsinger, director of IHRSA Asia-Pacific said:

“IHRSA is driven by the global nature of our industry today, and it is great to see this unique event focusing on the fastest and easiest way to get ‘global’…virtually! Bringing these valuable concepts together to help concentrate an operator’s attention to the detail they will need to be relevant in the future is extremely important and could help both the converted and those still undecided on how to use technology to utilise it as a major part of each business model in the next ‘normal.’”

Delegates in 2022 can expect to take part in:

  • Educational sessions,
  • Expert panels,
  • Technology based boutique trade show,
  • Networking opportunities, and
  • The Inaugural FRITS Award Gala Dinner with the presentation of the first Technology Awards for gyms, studios and suppliers.

Justin Tamsett, managing director of Active Management and founder of the tech summit, is delighted to have IHRSA’s support for the event.

“For Australians, it will be impossible to get to Dallas for IHRSA 2021 this year, so to have IHRSA having a presence Down Under at our event shows IHRSA really cares about our international industry. Supporting the Summit shows they truly are global.”
