OCTOBER 9–11, 2019


Join us Oct. 10, 2019, at the Chicago Hilton
for the 2019 Club Industry CEO Summit

Sponsored by 

The CEO Summit is an invitation-only event created exclusively for C-level executives, owners, and officers. Invitees are the leaders of many of the top revenue-generating commercial clubs, medical wellness companies, club management companies and specialty segments in the North America.

The CEO Summit addresses the unique issues of CEOs and owners at clubs of this size and allows them to discuss trends in the industry, share insights and network. This is the must-attend event for the largest leaders and innovators in the fitness industry. The CEO Summit will be held at the Chicago Hilton, Oct. 10, 2019, as part of the Club Industry Show.

New in 2019:

  • An invited CEO may bring an individual from their organization who is a general manager or higher and is the chief decision-maker for their business. (Registration fee is required of the guest.)
  • We have expanded opportunities for networking, adding sponsored club tours and two happy hour events.

Enjoy new perspectives from industry-leading health club owners/CEOs, panelists, presenters and sponsors. You will see and hear new and different ways to succeed in the future. Over and over, CEO Summit participants cite networking and gaining new or useful information as the greatest values they receive from attending the event.
