The key themes this year are...
"I was really impressed with Elevate, I was able to meet all of my suppliers within the exhibition and discuss my business requirements with them. There aren't any other events in the UK where I can achieve this and I am looking forward to participating again in 2017."
"The importance of the event is to bring together, for the first time, the fitness industry, technology industry, healthcare sector and the really important people - the practitioners who promote physical activity, to give them a sound bed of evidence to take away and use in their everyday lives. New equipment, new ideas, new energy."
Professor Charlie Foster
"I was pleased to attend Elevate 2016 and feel it has become a must attend event for our sector. I was impressed by the balance of impressive speakers, great quality, appropriate suppliers (and partners), and the opportunity to informally network."
Places for People Leisure
"The Elevate event was not only interesting but fundamental to any business to make key contacts and receive insights, information, debates and direction to address health issues and challenges in Britain today. I have not found another event that can cover so much in two days and link it all together. I am really looking forward to next year's event."
Programme and Performance Manager

It was fantastic to see presentations by those at the cutting edge of their fields, with further discussion on the subjects creating alternative business and networking opportunities."
