As Elevate returns for 2024, Team EMD UK are preparing to showcase the value of group exercise.

Our two-day timetable will promote group exercise benefits to fitness sector thought-leaders.

What is Elevate?

Elevate is an annual conference that connects fitness, sport, and physical activity. Taking place at London ExCel, it boasts a two-day timetable on Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13 June 2024.

Elevate brings together brands and thought leaders from across the sector to discuss successes, solutions, and the future of fitness. Elevate is known for its forward-thinking approach and collaborative atmosphere.

Tickets for the event are free.

What are EMD UK doing at Elevate?

As the national governing body for group exercise, EMD UK is showcasing the far-reaching benefits of group exercise. Our timetable is dedicated to insight, solutions, and success stories.

Our goals are to:

  • Provide thought-leaders with information to develop better group exercise experiences.
  • Promote the value of group exercise instructors and the work they do.

Our EMD UK Theatre was packed across all talk last year. This year, we’re aiming to exceed that!
