European Health & Fitness Market Report 2016

During the European Health and Fitness Forum, which will take place in Cologne on 6th April, Hollasch will present The European Health & Fitness Market Report 2016, a comprehensive portrait of the top operators and the major mergers and acquisitions that took place in 2015.

“This is the latest research published by EuropeActive in cooperation with Deloitte,” he says. “Besides key numbers and detailed profiles of the leading European fitness club operators, the report includes profiles of the 18 largest national markets, in-depth analyses on merger and acquisition activities, EU policy implications, technological trends and the global equipment market analyses, as well as interviews with selected market experts and leaders.”

The first EuropeActive/Deloitte European Health & Fitness Market Report was published in April 2014, and, at the time, was the only authoritative report containing European market data. EHFF 2016 will see the release of the third edition, with updated data, new profiles, and more.

“The report will be by far the most comprehensive study on the European health and fitness market,” Hollash says. “It will be an invaluable resource to all industry stakeholders.”

The Dusseldorf-based analyst is already focusing on the European Health and Fitness Forum and says the conference “offers the perfect stage to present and discuss this year’s key findings." He is also delighted with the continued cooperation between EuropeActive and Deloitte.
