I am delighted to welcome you to the first Exercise for Health Summit to be held in Madrid 21-22 November 2023. This brand-new initiative aims to become a global leading educative forum and professional network for academics, professionals and public and private decision-makers working to utilise fitness and exercise to make citizens and communities healthier and happier through health-enhancing physical activity. I deeply encourage all our industry colleagues and peers to join us for this unique event to support EuropeActive in getting more people, more active, more often!

Thank you very much for your interest on the 1st Exercise for Health Summit, a unique new event from EuropeActive, developed by THiNK Active, EuropeActive´s Research Centre, in partnership with the Research Centre in Sport Sciences of King Juan Carlos University, and SpainActive Foundation.

The 1st Exercise for Health Summit is designed to explore the opportunities for interaction and collaboration between the overall Physical Activity sector and the Health one (focusing mainly in Public Health and Health-care), aiming to close the existing gaps.

Our aim is to bring together academics/scientists, health and life insurance companies, public health policymakers (incl. politicians and authorities), international institutions (i.e. EU, WHO, etc.), public health related NGOs, relevant health-care providers, club operators, equipment suppliers, digital/tech providers, health professionals, training providers and exercise professionals. Identifying and disseminating existing promising and/or best practices across Europe and globally; building up innovative and transformative partnerships; providing evidence about the potential impact of colocation initiatives; etc., we will try to inform and support the delivery and implementation of new policies promoting active living in a sustainable way, involving a responsible industry.

The 1st Exercise for Health Summit will involve keynotes from leading academic and policy experts, roundtables, case studies and promising practices.

We have prepared an exciting scientific, professional, and social programme at Madrid to allow you to connect, interact and engage with world-class academics, visionary leaders, inspiring entrepreneurs, and disruptive organisations supporting active living…
