"The virtual conference gives FBA sponsors center stage"

(MINNEAPOLIS, MN, November 21, 2022) – The Fitness Business Association (FBA) celebrated its second SUCCEED! Innovation & Solutions Summit by drawing more than double its 2021 attendance numbers.

The brainchild of the late Chuck Leve, the entire Summit gives FBA sponsors the center stage to showcase their equipment, technology, software - anything they've been working on to the entire FBA audience.

With over 1,000 attendees the event kicked off with special guest Lauren Shroyer, Vice President of Product & Innovation at the American Council on Exercise (ACE) who shared ACE's objectives for 2023 and beyond.

While the event was a resounding success it couldn't have happened without a bevy of FBA sponsors. Those who participated in the Summit included:

  • SportsArt
  • Gymcatch
  • 97 Display
  • American Council on Exercise
  • National Academy of Sports Medicine
  • TeamUp
  • Trainerize
  • Band of Hands

  • Accuro
  • Nuvita
  • NPE
  • Keiser
  • SFIC
  • IncSight
  • ISSA
  • Business Finance Depot
  • Smartify Media
  • FAI

As the SUCCEED! brand of virtual conferences continues to excel, the FBA is doubling down and investing heavily in virtual education for 2023.

“Time and time again, our virtual conferences are proving to be a draw for attendees all over the world," said Josh Leve, FBA founder & CEO. "The time, dedication and focus my entire team brings to these events amazes me every time out. Every season we work to do everything possible to ensure our attendees and sponsors receive an amazing experience, have fun, and gain access to high-quality education from the comfort of their homes. However, we know we've just scratched the surface with our virtual event model. With new technologies emerging every day coupled with attendee and speaker feedback we've got HUGE things in store for 2023, so stay tuned."

Next up for SUCCEED! is its BIG Virtual Conference this Spring happening March 2-5, 2023 with a brand new event structure, education offerings, and more.
