This is why the IHRSA Innovation Summit is the must-attend event for fitness industry professionals this fall. On September 17, we’ll (virtually) come together with the best minds in the industry to innovate, connect, and thrive in the new economy.
Here are five reasons you can’t afford to miss it.
1. Spark Innovative Thinking at Sessions & Panels
Since the pandemic began, there has been a flood of creative and innovative thinking by fitness industry leaders, shared in articles, on social media, and in webinars. It has been a truly impressive effort—but it can be a lot to sift through. At the IHRSA Innovation Summit, you’ll have access to the best thinking by a diverse group of leaders all in the same day.
During the Summit, you’ll participate in timely and engaging education sessions and panels with these high-level speakers who will present on topics like innovation strategy, the future of the industry, finance, member retention, and leadership.
For example, “IGNITE!”—the perennial favorite—is back with an innovative theme. In this fast-paced, 60-minute event, guest speakers will have 5 minutes to convey a concept they are passionate about. Paula Neubert, president & general manager of Club Greenwood will present “Planning for the Future,” Brent Gallagher, owner of Avenu Fitness, will discuss “How Team Innovation Will Keep Your Gym From Crashing,” and Shanel Anderson, founder of Soul City Yoga, will explain “How to Create & Foster a Diverse Fitness Community.”
And those are just a few of the IGNITE! topics! See the full agenda to learn more about sessions, panels, and speakers.
