Come and visit Australasian Leisure Management at the Australian Fitness & Health Expo
April 17, 2013

Visitors to the Australasian Leisure Management stand (booth W69) at this weekend's Australian Fitness & Health Expo will be able to pick up a copy of the March/April 2013 issue with features on THUMP Boxing by Christian Marchegiani, Youth Fitness, How 500 community fundraisers contributed to a $23 million aquatic and recreation facility, our Expo preview and more.

Do also come to the Australasian Leisure Management stand, which we are sharing with the Australian Leisure Facilities Association, to get some tips on getting your news into the media (see below).

Special Guest

An added highlight at the stand will be the presence of our Expo guest Christian Marchegiani - founder and Managing Director of Thump Boxing and founder of Anti Bullying organisation 'Underdogs'.

Christian, who authored the cover story in the March/April 2013 issue of Australasian Leisure Management, will be on stand W69 to answer questions from 10.30 to 11.30 am on Saturday 20th April, following his presentation at the FILEX Fitness Convention.

Christian currently works as the boxing and conditioning coach for the Sydney Swans, the Australian Cricket team and numerous Olympic athletes and has been the Coach on the 9 Network's Excess Baggage TV series as well as hosting ABC Grandstand's Live Fit radio program.

Getting your news into the media

Ever wondered why your competitors news features in the media either traditional media such as magazines, newspapers, radio and television or new social media such as twitter, Facebook and other platforms and yours doesn't?

Understanding how to present your news and information is part of the process but it may also need you and/or your organisation to get into the habit and culture of communicating. You may well be a great verbal advocate for your business but you need to translate that communication into the written word and/or be able to deliver that message on camera or into a microphone.

Come and get some guidance on how to present news and information and creating a culture of communication.

To be held at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre from Friday 19th to Sunday 21st April, the 2013 Australian Fitness & Health Expo is open only to those in the fitness/health trade on Friday 19th April, with general and trade admission on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st April.
