This year’s conference will focus on the theme of marketing and sales in the fitness sector.

Marketing and sales revisited
Between 2007 and 2017 the fitness market grew from having 36 million to an impressive 60 million members – a remarkable increase of 67 per cent over the decade.

Speakers at the EHFF will explain how marketing and sales can be optimised and how operators should respond to increasing competitive pressure.

About the keynotes
David Greenfield will provide insights into the way electronics giant Philips understands marketing and sales. Greenfield is Philips’ Global Head of Consumer Obsession & Digital Marketing, with 15 years’ experience in digital marketing, sales and retail and will speak about value-oriented consumer segmentation.

In David Patchell Evans the EHFF welcomes one of the most successful large-scale operators in the industry. The founder and CEO of Goodlife runs one of Canada’s biggest fitness enterprises, with 385 health clubs, making it the fourth biggest in the world.

Patch is an extraordinary personality in the fitness industry, having won more than 25 national and international awards and with a host of other accolades to his name.

At 26 years of age Jonathan Fisher became CEO of the Holmes Place Group, which today generates sales of US$250m a year.

He sums up his philosophy as follows: “The majority of the population still doesn’t exercise on a regular basis yet and the industry needs to open up to new offers. I think things will move into a more holistic direction and I’m proud to be at the forefront of this movement.

The fourth keynote speaker is Karsten Hollasch from Deloitte, who will present at the forum on The European Market in 2018 – a study carried out jointly by EuropeActive and Deloitte – containing research findings that form an integral part of the EHFF programme.

Hollasch is responsible for corporate and private equity mandates at Deloitte and heads up Consumer Business and Transportation, as well as the German Sport Business Group.

New: break-out sessions
While the morning of the EHFF is dedicated to the keynotes, the afternoon will continue with a new format. Participants can select topics of greatest interest from six break-out sessions, including personalised nutrition and pricing. Club operators will also present their successful marketing campaigns.

One ticket, three events
In addition to the full day conference, delegates will also have the opportunity to network at the EHFF evening event and they will get a two-day ticket for FIBO, plus a copy of Marketing and Sales in the Fitness Sector – a EuropeActive publication.
