NEW YORK, July 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Questex’s Sibec Europe-UK, Europe’s leading hosted buyer event for the fitness industry, takes place September 27-30 at the Anantara Vilamoura Algarve Resort, in Portugal.
Sibec Europe-UK brings together Europe and the UK’s major operators from the private, local authority and trust markets in health, fitness, and leisure to meet with key leading global suppliers to participate in a series of one-on-one meetings over two dedicated business days and is the longest running hosted buyer event in the fitness industry.
Throughout the event, suppliers meet club and fitness facility owners and operators during meals and other planned networking activities. This fosters communication and cross-sharing of ideas, best practices, and future business relationships.
New to the event this year will be two prominent voices in Europe’s fitness industry.
