Elevate Moves to 2021

Over the past couple of months our businesses, lives and routines have changed, in some ways perhaps forever. Whilst the UK is past the peak of the COVID 19 pandemic, the country is by no means back to business as usual.

Had COVID19 not have happened, Elevate would have opened its doors this week and welcomed thousands of professionals from the physical activity, health and performance to the fifth edition of Elevate - the UK's largest trade event for these incredibly important sectors.

Instead we have seen many of you pivot your businesses to help in the containment and prevention of the spread of the virus, to support the population in keeping active at home and use the time to develop new parts of your services and offerings. While it hasn't been easy, it has been inspiring to see and hear so many success stories from the fitness, therapy and sport sectors and I think we've all been pleased to see the nation value physical activity and health like never before.

As the organisers of the UK's largest physical activity and therapy trade show our role is to create a safe, successful and well thought-out event for these sectors. Unfortunately 2020 has turned out not to be the year to hold such an event. The fifth edition of Elevate will now take place in June 2021 - all Elevate 2020 exhibition space bookings have been automatically moved to June 2021. We hope that Elevate 2021 will happen during the peak of a bounce back that we are all looking forward to and very much deserve.

We are disappointed not be able to come together this year, however we pride ourselves in making the decisions necessary to provide all those involved with a valuable and successful event. We have continued to review the rescheduled October dates and feel there are still too many concerns for the businesses we connect and the health of those attending to stage a 2020 event.
The Elevate team would like to thank you for your ongoing support and understanding. We look forward to delivering the most successful Elevate yet in 2021.

Whilst we cannot yet meet in person we will use technology to share industry insights, ideas, product development and passion for getting the country moving more via Weekly Elevate Webinars.
Elevate webinars will connect buyers and suppliers by discussing the latest topics and sharing insights across a range of vital topics. Demand is high and there are still credible and effective opportunities available to promote products, represent your brands and generate new leads by engaging with these webinars.

We are delighted to be launching Elevate Webinars, with our first being Sponsored by Future Fit our Education Partner.

Are fitness professionals really at the heart of the growth of the sector?
