Fitness and Recreation Industry Technology Summit 2022 will be an online event


With uncertainty over the staging of events due to the spread of Omicron, the organizers of the Fitness and Leisure Industry Technology Summit (FRITS) 2022, which was due to be held in Sydney on February 22-23 , announced that the Summit would now be held virtually on Friday, April 8.

Postponed to 2020 and 2021, Summit founder Justin Tamsett had adapted the event to take place as a series of monthly webinars, but was convinced that FRITS could be held as an event in face to face from next month.

However, in a communication to stakeholders on Friday, he said “as you know COVID has had a significant impact on the number of attendees”, adding that potential attendees from outside NSW than in “the current environment , they are not willing to travel”.

Accordingly, FRITS 2022 will take place as a virtual summit on Friday, April 8.

Tamsett explained, “We believe the best way to deliver appropriate value to our sponsors, attendees and the industry is to go online.

“While this was a costly decision for us, moving to a virtual event format will provide you with an even better opportunity to connect with owners and managers.”

The FRITS team is currently finalizing the program and setting up the platform (the event will be on Airmeet) which will include:

  • A one-day virtual summit from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (AEST) on Friday, April 8
  • Two main presentations to launch and close the day
  • Seven blocks of 45-minute concurrent sessions – with 10 sessions already locked but 21 being planned
  • A virtual exhibition
  • A networking lounge with speed networking options

Free to attend, FRITS has engaged leading industry bodies to help promote.

Additionally, all sessions will be recorded and made available, along with 16 hours of recorded content in 2021 via .

Access to the recordings will be available for purchase for $165, with sponsors able to distribute their unique discount code for $100 off.
