The single best opportunity of the year to literally get your brand in the hands of such a large proportion of the industry. For the last 11 years ExerciseNZ has run FitEx, New Zealand’s largest annual conference for Personal Trainers, Group Exercise Instructors, Club/Facility Managers, Owners, staff and more. In 2015 we had a record 700+ attendees at the AUT North Shore Campus venue. The educational workshops cover two full days, with a pre-convention specialist workshop one-day prior, and an opening drinks event. 8-9 different speaker sessions run at each time slot covering the following categories: Business, Personal Training, Group Exercise, Exercise Prescription, Mind Body (pilates, yoga etc), Nutrition/fat loss, Exercise Rehab and Special Populations. The event is marketed extensively by way of the official conference web site (www.fitex.co.nz), via ExerciseNZ and REPs; and extensive pre-event marketing (including a full conference schedule and brochure) starts from March each year.

Suppliers are invited to participate in two ways: 1.

Product Showcase

2. Sponsorship

Page 15


1. Product Showcase www.fitex.co.nz/product-showcase/ All suppliers can book stand space (3 sizes available) in our product show case area at conference to showcase/sell their (small) products, equipment and services. However, only Preferred Suppliers to ExerciseNZ will receive unique marketing opportunities and promotion throughout the weekend. The Product Showcase area is held in the FitEx ‘Hub’ in the AUT Stadium, where all conference registrations, eating options and hang-out zones will be set-up. Conference welcome drinks are also held in this location. This means maximum exposure to maximum people for your brand throughout the entire weekend. Preferred Suppliers also have the opportunity to advertise (and therefore direct traffic to their stands), run special offers/competitions and incentives.

Stand Costs for 2016: Small Stand: 3m x 3m - $950 + GST Large Stand: 6m x 2m - $1450 + GST Extra large Stand: 4m x 6m or 2m x 8m - $2450 + GST

2. Sponsorship Options (for Preferred Suppliers Only) – pricing on application

Speaker sponsorship

Events sponsorship (i.e. opening drinks or pre-conference workshops)

Provision of products for use in workshops

Placing an advertisement in the Conference handbook

Note: Extensive pre-event marketing for FitEx starts in March. To ensure benefits of sponsorship are maximised, we recommend you confirm sponsorship early (so it can be acknowledged in pre-event marketing materials).
