Spectacular IHRSA 2014 all around

The numbers are in, and they look mighty nice: 11,000+ industry professionals; 7,000+ convention and trade show attendees; 81 countries represented; and 372 trade show exhibitors.

Of course this was what we have announced as the final tally from IHRSA 2014 33rd Annual International Convention & Trade Show, held March 12-15 in San Diego.

Everyone involved in putting it together, sponsors and advertisers, and attendees had a wonderful time and felt it was one of the best, if not the best, in 33 years.

Get a new perspective with 18th Annual Financial Panel

Rick CaroIHRSA likes to keep the International Convention & Trade Show educational sessions intimate, usually not more than 100 people. Some yearly sessions, however, just burst at the seams and a larger room is inevitable.

The Financial Panel is one of those gatherings where finding a seat can be tricky. And it is no surprise. It brings financial experts who talk about the fitness industry’s strengths and weaknesses, what they are as future trends, how the industry compares to analogous industries, how different segments within the industry are faring, and how the current debt and equity markets are behaving, relative to the industry.

More than 300 people are in attendance. There would be more if there weren’t conflicts on the schedule.

The 18th Annual IHRSA Financial Panel: An In-Depth Review of the Health Club Industry Growth Factors & Financial Sectors, in the Management & Operations track, is Friday, March 14, 11:30 p.m.
