Fit for the Future Convention Returns
The Sport and Recreation Alliance’s flagship learning and training event, the Fit for the Future Convention, returns on Wednesday 6 April with a focus on helping the sector to embrace technology.
The event, to be staged at Millennium Point in Birmingham, will provide insight and expertise from within the sector as guest speakers share their experiences and advice from their own journeys into technology.
There will be representation from the Welsh Sports Association present, joining the professional expertise and free support of the event’s headline sponsors Air IT as well as (among others) Joymo, the WSA’s official live-streaming partners. They will be taking their time to discuss how sport and recreation could better work alongside technology companies to enhance the products they offer and the service they provide.
The Sport and Recreation Alliance have agreed to share their member rates with WSA members too, so this is an excellent opportunity to get the sector back together en masse.
Day tickets for members are priced at £50 – a hugely reduced rate on previous years. There is an additional networking opportunity in the evening, including dinner, in which you can participate with an event ticket, priced at just £70 for WSA members.
Alternatively, WSA member organisations can buy a group ticket for £200 which allows five individuals to join for the day.

Lisa Wainwright MBE, Alliance CEO, previously said: “After consultation with our members, we are using this year’s Fit for the Future Convention to focus on an aspect of delivery that we all understand the importance of, but don’t always know how to take advantage of.
“Remote working and online services have taken a more central focus over the (COVID-19 Pandemic) and as a sector we need to be prepared and equipped to be on the front line of embracing technology.
“It isn’t just about virtual meetings anymore – technology will continue to play a key role in every area of our business and delivery models. As a sector, we should look to be ahead of the curve and use current advances to support our work, this event provides an excellent opportunity to start this process.”
Andrew Penlington, Regional Director at the event’s headline sponsors Air IT, added:
“As a longstanding partner of the Sport and Recreation Alliance, we’re delighted to be headline sponsors of Fit for the Future 2022.
“The convention is always a huge success and will be a great chance to reconnect with fellow members and sector leaders, as well as highlighting the role that technology can play in supporting sports and physical activity at all levels.”
If your organisation has embraced technology to achieve organisational goals recently, the SRA would love to feature you in the event. Please get in touch the WSA team if this is of interest.
