Face-to-face interactions are so fundamental to business relationships, development and innovation and we've all been deprived of those since the start of the pandemic,” says Lucy Findlay, event director of Elevate.

“The doors opening on Elevate 2022 at London’s Excel is another step in the right direction for a sector that’s capitalising on the new-found appreciation for getting out and getting active. I’d like to thank our sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, supporters and attendees. Their ongoing support and kind messages have been greatly appreciated. Elevate is an industry effort and we all contribute to developing and delivering this integral event.

“The rapidly developing technology and the innovations that we’ve seen over the past two years, from hundreds of leading industry suppliers, makes Elevate 2022 the place to reconnect, celebrate resilience and look forward to a future full of exciting new opportunities.”

About Elevate
15-16 June 2022, Excel, London

Elevate is the UK’s largest trade show dedicated to physical activity, fitness and sport therapy. During two full days, 8,000+ decision makers meet 250 leading suppliers, showcasing 1,000s of product innovations specially designed to ‘elevate’ the UK’s physical activity levels.

Buyers come from gyms, studios, sport clubs and sports therapy practices, as well as universities, personal training, schools and private practice.

Elevate 2022 will also offer networking and deliver learning from over 200 expert speakers, made possible by the support of 50 industry associations, media partners and NGOs.

"Elevate 2022 is the most important event of the year for the UK fitness industry – it’ll be great to see all the latest innovations in one place for the first time since 2019" – Michelle Dand, head of fitness product and programming, David Lloyd Clubs

Speakers at Elevate 2022

Independently developed, the Elevate 2022 speaker programme aims to be the largest live learning opportunity for the fitness industry and physical activity sector.

Contributed to by hundreds of thought leading organisations representing public and private interests, the programme is trade-only and free-to-attend, thanks to Elevate supporters, sponsors, exhibitors and Future Fit, Elevate’s education partner.

Five seminar theatres, a conference theatre and five workshops will host over 200 speakers sharing the insights in fitness, sports therapy and physical activity.

The Elevate 2022 Thought Leaders Conference will explore the big issues, while the Equality Diversity and Inclusion series will shine a light on the racial, gender and disability unbalance in the industry, and show how it can become a more inclusive space.

There will also be a focus on how suppliers and operators can make sustainable choices to create a fitter planet and the importance of the physical activity market supporting the healthcare system will be discussed after the past two years of strain on the NHS.

Other sessions will cover mental health, skills, innovation, prevention, participation and more.

Visitors can try out the latest products and technology

"Elevate combines wider aspects of activity and therapy, rather than just fitness. I’m looking forward to attending the show again and meeting the diverse group of people it attracts" – Chris Scragg, director of wellbeing, Nuffield Health

A more sustainable event

Elevate 2022 will have a sustainability partner – Space & Place architects – and an agenda of driving sustainability. Expect to see the following:

■ We’ve replaced the traditional printed event guide with an app, provided by Innovatise, the company behind myFitApp

■ Elevate will no longer provide lanyards or plastic badge covers (which are often just thrown away post event), we’re encouraging attendees to reuse ones they already have

■ Non-essential carpet will be removed from around the event – just doing this alone will save over 2500KG of CO2, as well as reducing budgets

■ Working with exhibitors to encourage reusable stand use

■ Encouraging attendees to bring their own water bottles to use the refill water stations within Excel.

■ Suggesting people travel via public transport or do a car share

■ Elevate will continue to work with Excel to make sure food and beverage solutions within the hall as sustainable as possible

■ The Elevate team also want to explore other suggestions to make future events more sustainable. Send your ideas to: [email protected]
