TESTIMONIAL

We have always been hesitant about attending and participating in fitness events in the region but I can safely say that this was a good investment of time and resources.

This culminated in a few very important meetings that happened after the event, which would not have happened as fast if it weren’t for the Fitness Leaders Business Breakfast.”

“We met some important solution providers for genuine problems we were facing with our business and I can confirm that we will be upgrading our gym management software with a company we met at your event! We are looking forward to Dubai Active Industry in October and seeing what other opportunities lay ahead for us.”
