Huge industry support for FITNESS + WELLNESS AUSTRALIA in Sydney in November
July 22, 2021

Event organisers have confirmed that FITNESS + WELLNESS AUSTRALIA, the new independent trade show and conference for the active health and recreation industry will run from the 11th to 13th November at the ICC Sydney.

Shaun Krenz, co-founder and Event Director of FITNESS + WELLNESS AUSTRALIA explained “during this pandemic we’ve all been and are still going through a bumpy road, for that reason, FWA is being designed to get the industry back to business.

“We want to be an industry catalyst, on the back of these hard times, that drives us to new levels in 2022 and beyond.”

FITNESS + WELLNESS AUSTRALIA will cover the breadth and depth of industry products and services, including the latest innovations in fitness equipment, building, design, maintenance, business services, management systems, security systems, software solutions, technology, digital marketing, customer service, payments, operation and fulfilment.

It will bring together the pacesetters in the ever-shifting fitness and wellness ecosystem to help executives deliver the best possible experience across all business touchpoints.

Strategic development of the event has been backed by some of the most respected and innovative players in the sector, with Krenz (pictured above) noting “the positive response, willingness to support, and desire for the initiative has blown me away.

"The team and I are speaking to both suppliers and fitness professionals every day and there is a huge pent-up demand to come together. We are expecting to see in attendance to the event, executives from all of the major gym chains in this region and the level of insight shared thus far has been invaluable to shaping something truly powerful for the industry.”

To be held across three days and featuring more than 150 brands, 100 speakers, four stages of content, deep-dive workshops, demonstration, a hosted buyer program, AI driven matchmaking, meaningful networking opportunities and a comprehensive vendor marketplace for everything needed to achieve commercial success.

Expected to attract more than 5,000 attendees, Krenz added “FITNESS + WELLNESS AUSTRALIA presents a new era and much needed platform for the industry to come together, network and do business.

“Whether you operate a health club or run a boutique studio, manage a leisure centre or are fitting out a corporate gym, FWA is where you’ll find everything to grow your business, improve your facility and inspire your members.

FITNESS + WELLNESS AUSTRALIA takes place at the International Convention Centre Sydney.
