  • How to attract and engage the young generation
  • Vision on the African market; past and future
  • Why a fitness representative body is crucial for market development
One lucky delegate to the conference stands a chance to win a scholarship from eta College to the value of R45,000.

“This scholarship is exactly the kind of collaboration we are trying to encourage within the sector. Skills development is one of the most crucial needs in our country and we are proud to be associated with this amazing initiative,” says Adele Eloff, Reed Exhibitions General Manager for Africa.

CEO of eta College Steve Harris adds: “eta College is dedicated to providing a learning environment where its students can graduate as the best practitioners in the world."

The launch Exhibition, which is free to attend for trade visitors, will showcase various equipment and product offerings for gyms and fitness establishments. Competitions, free workshops and demos will be on offer to all exhibition visitors.
