Elevate 2019 - offering visitors more content than ever before

Elevate will continue to play a crucial role in bringing the industry together
– Max Quittenton, director of Elevate

Now in its fourth year, Elevate continues to explore the benefits of physical activity for health and wellbeing whilst considering how the sector can help get more people moving, more often. This year’s event will build on its 2018 success, where it uniquely combined the future of fitness, with elite sports, public health and medical services.

The UK Government’s chief medical officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies, will be a keynote speaker for its Thought Leaders’ Conference and will lead discussion to inspire bigger picture thinking to unleash the full power of the physical activity sector as a force for good in society. She follows other industry leaders who have delivered thought-provoking speeches at the annual conference, including former Sports Minister, Tracey Crouch and Sir Muir Gray CBE.

Joining Dame Sally at the Thought Leaders’ Conference will be CIMSPA CEO, Tara Dillon, the Invictus Games Team UK captain, Mark Perkins, Public Health Physical Activity champion, Dr Zoe Williams, Sport England CEO, Tim Hollingsworth, UK Sport CEO, Liz Nicholls and national lead for Physical Activity at Public Health England, Dr Mike Brannan.

Elevate offers an extensive free education programme for the thousands of delegates attending with over 300 speakers presenting across nine dedicated programmes over the two-day event.

Alongside the speaker programme, Elevate once again boasts an impressive range of exhibitors who will showcase their latest products aimed at positively contributing towards decreasing physical inactivity levels, to the 10,000+ expected attendees. Exhibitors include Elevate’s headline sponsor, fibodo, along with eGym, PayAsUGym, Les Mills, Physical Company, FunXtion, MYZONE, Jordan Fitness, Keiser, Matrix and Eleiko.

Max Quittenton, director of Elevate, said: “We are extremely excited about Elevate 2019 as it will be our largest and most exciting event to date.

“Physical inactivity continues to be an ever-present societal issue which is at the focal point of contemporary sport policy. With Sport England’s recent Active Lives and Young People Survey showing that 82 per cent of young people are failing to hit the chief medical officer’s guidelines, Elevate will continue to play a crucial role in bringing the industry together to sustainably decrease notable figures such as these.”
