At the SNEWS® Fitness Forum panel discussion on Aug. 6, 2009, seats and aisles were filled with close to 100 attendees and exhibitors.
Prior to leading a discussion with panelists and retail experts Ron Hornbaker and Sandy Stein, SNEWS editor in chief Therese Iknoian presented a State of the Industry talk covering key retail trends as revealed in the annual SNEWS Fitness Retailer Survey and in the eFitBiz by SNEWS State of the Industry annual spring report and from other sources.
The Powerpoint slides are posted here for you to download and study in more detail. Look for information and trends in specialty retail sales, store numbers, sales by channel, sales of equipment by category and overall equipment sales.

A more in-depth story about the context of the talk, the discussion with panelists and questions posed will be posted on SNEWS for subscribers soon after the show.
