Keepme named platinum partner for Fitness and Recreation Industry Technology Summit

Keepme named platinum partner for Fitness and Recreation Industry Technology Summit
December 2, 2021

AI-driven gym sales platform Keepme is the latest sponsor to be named for the 2022 Fitness and Recreation Industry Technology Summit.

Named as a platinum partner for event - being held at Dockside in Sydney’s Cockle Bay Wharf on Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd February 2022 - Keepme founder and Chief Executive, Ian Mullane explains “we’re delighted to have joined the Summit as an official sponsor and partner for the 2022 event and see the sector come back together in person once again.

“We believe that technology, particularly AI, holds the key to success for businesses to not only recover but to thrive long term.

“Our industry is forever changed. Digital transformation has accelerated and so the sector must adapt, and fast. Now is the time to march forward with deliberate action and establish our position within the new reality.”

Following the impact of the pandemic on businesses, sales processes and targets have never been so important for operators and, with this in mind, on the Wednesday of the Summit, attendees will hear from Mullane who will provide operators with tools to streamline the sales process and increase efficiency in a talk entitled ‘The Ultimate Blueprint for Fitness Sales Operations’.

The Fitness and Recreation Industry Technology Summit (FRITS) aims to showcase the best in technology offerings for the sector and highlight the tech trends from around the world, allowing operators access to the best opportunities, products and services available for their businesses.

For the past 18 months, aquatic centres and fitness businesses have worked relentlessly to tackle the ongoing operational challenges caused by the pandemic. After many months of being restricted to on-screen events only, this event will bring the sector back together, renewing friendships, strengthening relationships and fostering new partnerships.

Justin Tamsett, FRITS host and Managing Director of Active Management, adds “smart fitness businesses are laser-focused on future-proofing themselves from future lockdowns, making this event more important than ever.

“Modelled on the success of overseas ‘tech’ summits, decision makers who attend these two transformative days, will take away the knowledge, skills and strategies to use technology to improve efficiencies, effectiveness and profitability.”

Ian Mullane’s talk ‘The Ultimate Blueprint for Fitness Sales Operations’ takes place on 22nd February 2022 from 3:00pm to 3:30pm.

Registrations for the Fitness & Recreation Industry Technology Summit are available now for just $495, which includes tickets to attend Summit, the inaugural Fitness Industry Technology Awards, access to 17+ hours of webinars through the Virtual Resource Hub and other surprises.

Australasian Leisure Management is FRITS’ media partner.
