International Sport & Fitness Exhibition, Saudi (ISF Saudi), the Kingdom’s only major international sports and fitness exhibition takes place from the 25th – 28th of November 2015 at the Jeddah Centre for Forums and Events. Organised by, Reed Sunaidi Exhibitions, a strategically successful joint venture partnership between the world’s largest international exhibition organiser Reed Exhibitions and highly experienced Saudi organiser Sunaidi Expos.
The importance of ISF Saudi reflects the need to further develop the sports and fitness sector in KSA. There is still some way to go to achieve the objectives and ISF Saudi 2015 will play an important part as the Kingdom continues its pursuit to develop the sports sector by improving infrastructure and facilities.
One of the most important developments in the KSA sports and fitness sector is the move towards a healthier lifestyle which is reflected in the 16% annual growth of the private fitness clubs in the country. Accordingly, the Kingdom needs over $20 billion worth of sport & fitness equipment and infrastructure. However, the Kingdom’s current imports of vitamins, sportswear and sports equipment do not exceed $1bn. This means that there is a need to increase imports of sports equipment, facilities and expertise to meet this fast growing demand. ISF Saudi will play a vital role in achieving these growth targets.
