It’s that time of year again for the Club Industry show. We hope you will be joining us for this week’s show in Las Vegas, but even if you can’t make it, Club Industry will be your source and keep you updated on Twitter and Facebook.
You will find us attending pre-conference tours at The University of Nevada-Las Vegas and Zappos Corporate Headquarters from 12:15 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. on Wednesday before we kick off the show with a welcome reception that will give attendees a chance to network and mingle from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the First Food and Bar in The Palazzo.
We will keep you in the loop at the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to Joe Cirulli, owner of Gainesville Health and Fitness Centers, at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, and again at the following keynote address by John DiJulius, customer service speaker, author and consultant, at 10 a.m.
We wouldn’t miss the Best of the Best Awards reception from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Renaissance hotel, where some of the best programming in the fitness business will be honored. For the first time, this year’s contest also includes vendor awards in which manufacturers will be recognized for the best treadmill, stationary bike, elliptical and club management software.
On the last day, you can catch us at the PFP Personal Trainer of the Year Awards from 10 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on Friday in the Club Industry Theater. We also will visit several booths on the exhibit hall floor, which is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday and again from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday.
