active-net 2016 underway in Loughborough

Business leaders and key influencers from across the health and fitness industry are gathering in Loughborough today (27 April) to do business, debate and network at active-net 2016.

Now in its third year, active-net runs from 27-28 April at imago Burleigh Court and Holywell Park, Loughborough. As well as one-to-one buyer and supplier meetings, the event will feature a strong educational element and networking programme. It is aimed at all operators and suppliers with a focus on the public sector, whether it be Trusts, Local Authorities or Universities/Colleges.

This year's event will also feature a series of one-to-one surgery sessions with ukactive research director Dr Steven Mann, who will outline ukactive’s research agenda and help attendees explore how data-driven decisions can generate results for providers across the sector.

Meanwhile, international basketball star and head coach of the England under 18 Men’s Basketball Team Karl Brown will be the after-dinner speaker this evening.

Brown will be interviewed by Gaynor Nash, regional legacy co-ordinator for Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport (LSR) County Sports Partnership (CSP). Nash herself is a keen sportswoman, having played national-level football and hockey.

Leisure Opportunities publisher Paul Thorman will also be on hand throughout active-net to represent the magazine, which is the media partner for this year's event.
