Event Review: the European Health & Fitness Forum (EHFF) 2019 on Marketing & Sales in the Fitness sector, Cologne pre-FIBO

Posted on 07-04-2019

Of course, as founder of an internationally operating fitness marketing agency (currently around 50 full-time staff) I attended the EHFF 2019 one day in advance of FIBO in Cologne, Germany.

This year's theme: Marketing and Sales in the Fitness Sector

To get to a thriving business, any business, the two most needed skills to learn or systems you need to have in place are both marketing and sales. On 3 April 2019, EuropeActive did a very fine job organising the 6th EHFF in a row with over 600 entrepreneurs and managers attending.

A list of reviews as found online

On a personal level, I really enjoyed hearing opinions, numbers, and experiences from industry colleagues. And learning from their context and insights. Here's a short list of what they shared:

Best tip: buy the book 'Marketing and Sales in the Fitness Sector'

All participants of the Forum received the first print of this book by contributing editors Jan Middelkamp and Herman Rutgers. My best tip: buy that book now! Just go to the Black Box Publishers page and order it. It may be one of the better business decisions you make this year. Click on the link for all book info and order form!

Now open to the fitness sector: our own Fitness Marketing Lab

With almost 15 years of fitness marketing experience, having served/educated over 2,500 clubs in total, with currently 800 clubs in 12 countries on 4 continents in long-term cooperation, one can say we might have an interesting benchmark. We share all our weekly(!) marketing innovations in http://www.TheFitnessMarketingLab.com.
