Fitness industry to gather at Sibec Europe-UK in Portugal this September

Questex’s iconic event Sibec Europe-UK – known as Europe’s leading hosted buyer event for the fitness industry – will take place from 27-30 September at the Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort, in Portugal.

Sibec Europe-UK brings together Europe and the UK’s major operators from the private, local authority and trust markets in health, fitness, and leisure to meet with key leading global suppliers to participate in a series of one-on-one meetings over two dedicated business days.

Marty McCallen, MD of Questex Fitness Group and event organiser said: “Our event is the longest-running hosted buyer event for the fitness industry in Europe. It brings the industry together to find creative and innovative ways to grow and improve their businesses.

“With unlimited networking opportunities – including a minimum of 16 one-to-one appointments, activities and receptions – the ROI suppliers will generate, and the experience buyers will experience is unparalleled.

“We’re so excited to welcome the fitness industry to the exquisite Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort in Portugal.”

Here’s what suppliers had to say about Sibec Europe-UK.

• “Sibec was a very valuable, cost-efficient, and effective way to meet a lot of great people and have a little fun as well,” said Mark Lowder HydroMassage.• “As always, a great networking event and an effective way of meeting and engaging with key contacts in a time-efficient way,” said Jenny Patrickson, Active IQ.

• “A jam-packed 48 hours of business!,” said Miles Canning, Box Fitness.

Here’s what buyers had to say about Sibec Europe-UK.• “Sibec Europe is a fantastic event. It is a really efficient way to meet with new potential suppliers, to expand professional networks, and to touch base with pre-existing suppliers in a relaxed but productive environment,” said Kev Forester, LiveWire.

• “Sibec provides the perfect platform for business meetings and networking in a professional yet relaxed environment. It’s my industry go-to event of the year, every year,” said Martin Guyton, tmactive.• “Sibec remains the best way to meet new suppliers – it’s relaxed, but professional approach always introduces us to ideas and innovations we otherwise might never come across,” said Alan West, Sodexo.
