IHRSA Announces Site of IHRSA 2016!

New Call-to-action

At the moment, the global health and fitness club industry may be focused on IHRSA’s 34th Annual International Convention and Trade Show in Los Angeles, but IHRSA is already planning ahead. Recently, the association announced that the 35th annual event will be held at the Orange County Convention Center, in Orlando, Florida, on March 21-24, 2016. 

The choice, IHRSA explains, was based, in part, on numerous requests from the association’s members.

The convention center, the second largest in the U.S., provides an ideal venue for meetings for a growing industry. It boasts a total of more than seven million square feet of space, 2.1 million of it for exhibits, as well as two 92,000-square-foot general assembly areas; 74 meeting rooms; the 2,643-seat Chapin Theater; a 200-seat lecture hall; the 62,000-square-foot, multipurpose Valencia Room; and eight food courts and three full-service restaurants. 

The Orlando area lends itself equally to efficiency and recreation. Among the top local attractions are Walt  Disney World; SeaWorld; Universal Studios; and, in Cape Canaveral, the Kennedy Space Center. And the weather outlook for March 2016: generally sunny with temperatures in the mid- to high-70s.

Full details about IHRSA’s 35th Annual International Convention and Trade Show will become available this summer.
