"… The live meeting format gives you an opportunity to make personal contacts and hands-on sessions that you can't get through online education." -Peter Ronai, M.S.
If you have never been to a conference of this nature, the Summit is for you. ACSM is committed to offering the best conference experience and has an orientation team on-site that will help you throughout the conference-helping you navigate the meeting program, answering questions and assisting you to make the entire meeting as meaningful and fun as possible.
"…If you're planning on going to only one fitness conference this year, you would be mistaken to miss the Summit!" -Fred Hoffman, M.Ed.
After several years of attending the conference, I find 'the Summit' to be a fun-filled, educational and productive opportunity to catch-up with old friends, meet new ones, and learn from those working in the field. As a researcher and academician, these are valuable experiences to share with my students and keep them abreast of the new trends in the fitness industry. Hope to see you in Vegas--register for the Summit today!
