Congress attendee: be sure to take a lot home with you

If you have been to IHRSA events before, you know that the attendees aren’t only fitness club owners, managers and employees, or those in the business of supplying clubs with their equipment. 

Those who work in the industry in other ways – like janitorial services, consultants in sales and marketing, or even those in the media attend to hear about the latest trends, to network, or gather new ideas to bring back to clients. 

Maria Angeles de Santiago Restoy is the founder of Management Around Sports in Spain. She works with health and fitness facilities with sales, marketing, training, recruitment, design and research.
