The 2020 Fit for the Future Convention in association with Howden will bring leaders from across the sector together to look at how being resilient today can help you thrive tomorrow.A sustainable sport and recreation sector is important to keep the nation active and to help address some of society’s biggest problems. So it is important that it is meeting the needs of the present, without compromising the future.This event is an annual favourite in our events programme, and it sold out last January.
This year’s exciting programme is spread over Tuesday and into Wednesday morning and will feature 6 keynote sessions covering the three basic pillars of sustainability: people, profits and planet.The keynotes will be supported by our very popular SPORT Talks.
