In a conference call Oct. 29, the management team of the Health & Fitness Business show painted a picture of the show’s declines on both sides of the aisle since 2005 -- one that was accelerated in the last two years with the economic downturn and various bankruptcies and consolidations.

With the choices for the show’s future now awaiting a decision, SNEWS® has launched a concise, five-question survey seeking additional input from our readers. The survey will be open through Tuesday, Nov. 10.

At this time, the HFB management team has focused on exhibitors for feedback since they subsidize the show and buy the booths. SNEWS is looking for feedback from any segment, from exhibitors and retailers, to dealers and consultants, since everybody is a stakeholder if the show has been a key venue for their business.

We will summarize the results in another story in mid-November and share key nuggets of information with the HFB management.

Click here to get started on the SNEWS survey about the show’s future. 

And feel free to pass the link (www.snewsnet.com/HFBFutureSurvey) to colleagues and others in the industry.

Don’t miss what could be your last chance to have your say. Take the survey before it closes Nov. 10.
