Michael Mosley to headline first Elevate Conference

TV journalist and presenter Dr Michael Mosley has been announced as a keynote speaker for this year’s inaugural Elevate Conference in London.

Mosley, who presents The Truth About Exercise and Trust Me, I’m a Doctor, joins a lineup including minister for sport Tracey Crouch, Virgin Active UK managing director Robert Cook and public health expert Muir Gray, as part of the two-day trade exhibition at ExCeL London from 9 to 10 May.

The speakers will lead the new thought leadership conference at Elevate, billed as the UK's largest physical activity exhibition.

“The physical activity sector is experiencing huge momentum in terms of governmental support, media coverage and increased consumer engagement,” said Max Quittenton, founder and director of Elevate.

“The inaugural Elevate Conference will challenge the sector to fulfil this potential, outlining an ambitious vision for its role in society.

“Influential speakers will assess the evidence, analyse the current state of play and present the opportunities.”

Speakers will explore themes from social prescribing to open data and digital disruption to community-wide behaviour change.

The event will feature about 200 suppliers, showcasing products and innovations designed to help private and public sector gym operators, local authorities, healthcare professionals, personal trainers, schools, sports clubs and universities get the nation moving more.

Exhibitors this year include Matrix, Mindbody, Dyaco, Concept2, JP Lennard, Core Health & Fitness, React Fitness, Eliko, Myzone, miha bodytech, Octane, Jordan, Physical Company, PayAsUGym, Gympass and Hippo Leisure.

And more than 200 speakers will represent organisations including the Department of Health, GLL, the World Health Organisation, NHS England, Sport England, ukactive, Virgin Active, Park Run, DCMS, MacMillan Cancer Research, David Lloyd Clubs, England Athletics, Places for People, ECB and British Gas.
