    The IHRSA European Congress in Madrid was great! The presentations were incredibly valuable at the strategic, tactical, and operational level. The event was also well organized -- the accommodations, the location in the centre of Madrid, not far from the airport, etc. Given this experience, I intend to visit the Congress again next year. Thank You IHRSA.

    The Congress itself, the networking opportunities, and the club tours were invaluable, and will, without a doubt, have a significant impact on shaping the future of Fitness First U.K. As we're currently in a turnaround situation, this is particularly appreciated. The IHRSA team, once more, exceeded expectations and did an outstanding job.

    Every year, the IHRSA European Congress is a source of inspiration to set the strategies to achieve our vision. From the speakers, to all the people that attend the event, IHRSA is definitely meeting its promise of "Success by Association".

    This year, I couldn't find a single critical thing to say about the IHRSA European Congress in Barcelona, Spain. The speakers were absolutely super. I've attended the Congress for the past five years, and this year's was the best one ever.
