IHRSA teams with Boyko's National Fitness Trade Show

The non-profit club association IHRSA has partnered with the National Fitness Trade Show run by Wally Boyko Production.

The non-profit club association IHRSA has partnered with the National Fitness Trade Show run by Wally Boyko Production. According to the agreement between the two, IHRSA will provide educational programming for the show now named, The Club Entrepreneur Conference and National Fitness Trade Show. The show will be held Sept. 8-10 in Las Vegas.

"The National Fitness Trade Show has a long and respected track record in a great venue," said Bill Howland, IHRSA's director of public relations and research, told SNEWS®. "It allows us a great opportunity to bring programming specifically tailored to individual entrepreneurs."

That target audience falls in line with the association's increasing focus on smaller clubs and its recently launched Club Entrepreneur magazine.

"The number of independent facilities has boomed over the last few years," said Howland. "We want to bring them the educational information to not only help them survive, but grow their businesses to the next level."
