BOSTON, MA - The International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) has announced that the Annual IHRSA International Convention & Trade Show (IHRSA 2021) will now take place September 20 - 22, 2021, in Los Angeles, CA. IHRSA 2021 marks the Association's 40th anniversary.
IHRSA's Annual International Convention & Trade Show brings world-class business keynote speakers together and offers dozens of education sessions. Attendees will hear from leading operators in the health and fitness industry, enabling them to share and take away new ideas to elevate their health and fitness clubs. The IHRSA Trade Show is traditionally where the industry's latest innovations, products and services are launched, showcasing the exciting global fitness world for all to see and experience.
All in all, the IHRSA International Convention & Trade Show is the premier annual gathering for the global fitness industry. IHRSA 2021 will mark the fourth time that the Annual IHRSA International Convention & Trade Show will visit Los Angeles, a popular destination for IHRSA and its members. The global fitness industry has convened there in 2012, 2015 and 2017. Historically, the event brings together club owners, operators and suppliers from more than 70 countries.
Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic's ongoing implications, the Association began exploring options for rescheduling the event this summer. After consulting the IHRSA Board of Directors, its club and supplier membership and key industry stakeholders, September 20 - 22 in Los Angeles, CA, was determined to be the best possible event location and timeframe.
"The consensus we heard is that there is too much uncertainty right now to commit to a large in-person event in March. Companies are still managing their way through this crisis. The industry will be in a much stronger position in the Fall of 2021 to come together for the first major in-person event since the crisis began," said Brent Darden, IHRSA Interim President and CEO.
IHRSA 2021 had initially been scheduled to occur in Las Vegas, NV, March 10 - 13. Further details about IHRSA 2021 will be announced as they are finalized. Visit ihrsa.org/convention for updates.
