Quick Hits from Club Industry 2011

We've had a great start to the Club Industry 2011 show in Chicago. We just heard from keynote speaker Chris Powell today, a B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. presentation, which followed Thursday's great presentation from John Moore on touchpoint marketing.

In addition to those keynotes, we've had so many other great events: our welcome reception at Rockit Bar and Grill on Wednesday night, the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation, Red Lerille on Thursday (and dinner with Red and his family Wednesday evening), the CEO Summit on Thursday, the Personal Trainers to Watch Awards and our Best of the Best Awards today. Several great sessions and show floor exhibits have been well received, too.

With so much going on, we're going to have to provide more details later, including a roundup in our November print issue. For now, go to our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter for photos and comments from attendees. Also, if you haven't already done so, download our Club Industry 2011 app. Apple iPhone users can visit the iTunes store and search for Club Industry Show. All other phone types can go here:

It's been a great time in Chicago. Did we mention we're heading to Las Vegas next year? We'll fill you in on that later, too.
