Three leading exhibitions within the physical activity, sports performance, and rehabilitation sector will join forces at ExCeL London.
Elevate, COPA Series and the Elite Sports Performance and Rehabilitation Expo will run alongside each other for the first time on May 9-10, 2018.
This combination of events will comfortably form the largest gathering of sport, health, fitness and rehabilitation professionals in the UK; attracting an audience of over 8,000 purchasers, specifiers and potential partners.
Exhibitors will receive the same experience of meeting relevant clients for their brand, whilst visitors enjoy an unrivalled range of innovative products, features, workshops and over 300 free-to-attend seminars. Each event will keep its own entrance, exhibition, content and features, but attendees will be able to access all areas with one badge.
Max Quittenton, Elevate founder, said: “We are delighted. The audience for all three shows share closely connected expertise and it’s widely accepted that tackling physical inactivity requires exactly this type of cross-sector collaboration. The synergies between rehabilitation, sport, fitness and health are clear. By co-locating we are firmly establishing the UK’s largest physical activity trade event.
“In turn, even more attendees will enjoy choosing from an even broader range of products and free-to-attend seminar content. The benefits for exhibitors are reasonably obvious. Put simply, if you are professional responsible for helping people become more physically active you simply must be at ExCeL between May 9-10, 2018.’’
Eddy Lawrance, event director of COPA Series and the Elite Sports Performance & Rehabilitation Expo, said: “I’m very excited that these leading events are all converging in one place at one time, they complement each other nicely with different audiences, but as a whole the offering to the visitor is phenomenal. We can’t wait to open the doors in May to the biggest event the industry has seen in years.”
