Sessions for the 2018 Club Industry Show are now online so attendees can see the quality selection of sessions provided again this year, much like this session presented at the 2017 Club Industry Show with speakers Will Phillips of REX Roundtables (left) and Nick Sarillo, founder of NIck's Pizza and Pub, who was also last year's keynote speaker.

Due to Popular Demand: Club Industry Show Sessions Go Live Early

The waiting was too much for many of you, so Club Industry has thrown out the rules and published most of the Club Industry Show conference sessions more than a week early so you can see what you are signing up for before conference rates increase on June 1.

You asked; we listened. Multiple people requested to see the session titles and summaries for this year’s Club Industry Show conference program prior to the All-Access Pass rates increasing on June 1. We understand the excitement and the desire to know what great education opportunities await you at the Club Industry Show Oct. 24-26 at the Hilton Chicago. So we don't blame you for wanting to see them as early as possible. That's why we broke protocol this year and published sessions early. Now, we invite you to review most of the conference sessions online. (Any remaining unpublished sessions should be visible to you by June 1.)

This year’s conference program covers nine tracks: Active Training, Leadership and Management, Marketing, Personal Training, Programming, Retention, Sales, Technology and Trends, and Wellness.

Of special note is that we are partnering with Personal Fitness Professional (PFP) this year on the Personal Training track. In fact, PFP put together a full day of sessions on Oct. 24 specifically for independent trainers (but also of interest to trainers who work for health clubs). We're calling that day "Take the Leap: From Fitness Trainer to Business Owner." 

Go online now to read more about sessions on topics such as competing with boutique studios, event marketing, revolutionizing your sales results, basic assessment techniques, medical wellness trends, making small group training profitable, increasing non-dues revenue, the value of health coaching, new marketing magnets, connecting healthcare with health clubs, pricing your services, getting more leads, and marketing with social media.

We have some great returning speakers as well as several new speakers this year. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to actually see the sessions during the confidence rate period and get the best rate on the All-Access Pass as well as free exhibit hall for the show.

Register now before the price increases on June 1.
