Five Reasons to Join Us at Elevate 2019

Elevate, the UK’s leading trade show for the physical activity industry, returns to London on 8-9 May. London Sport is delighted to be a Lead Supporter alongside UK Sport, Public Health England, the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, CIMSPA, the Institute of Sport, Exercise and Health, and ukactive.

At this year’s event our SportTech innovation programme, Sport Tech Hub, will be teaming up with ukactive’s Active Lab programme to showcase the very best of start-up innovation for physical activity and sport.

With just over two weeks to go until the event lands, here’s five reasons why you should join us at the Excel Centre for Elevate 2019.

World Class Conference Speakers

As well as its trade show credentials, Elevate offers a world class conference programme across its two days with a number of speakers who are certain to pack out the conference hall.

This year will see keynote speeches and presentations from speakers including Minister for Sport and Civil Society, Mims Davies MP, Sport England Chief Executive, Tim Hollingsworth, NHS England Director of Personalise Care, James Sanderson, three-time Olympian Kerri-Anne Payne, UK Sport Chief Executive, Liz Nicholl, and former Justice Minister, Dr Phillip Lee MP.

Cutting-Edge Innovation

Elevate’s Tech Lab has been curated by the teams behind London Sport’s Sport Tech Hub and ukactive’s Active Lab to showcase some of the brightest start-ups working to disrupt physical activity in the UK and across the globe.

From workplace health and street gamification to medical analytics, VR-powered rehabilitation and active travel support, the start-ups on show at Elevate aren’t just the future of sport; in a lot of cases, they’re the cutting-edge of present-day physical activity. This is your chance to see them in-the-flesh.

Network with the Industry

Across its two days, Elevate will welcome thousands of representatives from physical activity and sport who’ll be there to learn, network and keep an eye on the next wave of strategies for physical activity and sport.

Whether it’s through at seminars, the exhibition space or in the Excel Centre’s breakout spaces, Elevate is a brilliant opportunity to network with decision makers from the sector.

London at the Heart of Physical Activity

It may be a UK-wide show, but Elevate has made its home in London ever since the inaugural event back in 2016. While it draws in speakers and delegates from the whole country, Elevate’s helps to keep London right at the heart of physical activity in the country.

It’s Free!

It might not be a reason to attend in its own right, but it’s definitely a reason not to miss out! With registration open now and the two days free-to-attend, what’s stopping you? Register now to secure your place at Elevate 2019.
