EuropeActive is pleased to announce the latest in our series of high level events, a B2B Congress to be held annually during RiminiWellness – one of the world’s biggest gathering devoted to fitness, well-being, business, sport, physical culture and healthy eating.

EuropeActive is assisting in the set-up of the Innovation Congress, a business-to-business event on the 30th of May. The theme being ‘Experience the Power of Innovation: how to generate new business with modern concepts’ it’s the go-to event for fitness entrepreneurs and (future) leaders.

Based on the Deloitte research and various monitoring, we see competition on membership increasing. For the entrepreneurs, it is important to act in an innovative way and to steer towards business. Second revenue streams cannot be ignored at the gym.

Many organisations are developing new concepts to make (and keep!) the fitness industry successful. They may be technological developments or a completely new way of presenting fitness to the consumer, for example Boutique Fitness Clubs or Virtual Reality. This day will focus on those new routes. President Durregon of ANIF will open the Congress.
