Event description

Joining the dots between Membership Sales and Retention is key to the success of your club. 

The Sales and Retention Convention is the only event linking these two critical processes, presenting a connected approach to running a health club. 

Founded by Promote Leisure (Dave Reeves) and GGFit (Guy Griffiths), the convention runs every spring and autumn. Dave and Guy are authorities in membership sales and retention, and they are joined by other industry experts to educate and share best practices that you can implement in your club.


  • The Leaving Process, and re-engaging ex-members 
    How to deal with leavers, handle objections, and make spectacular saves. Collect valuable data, and leave the door open for them to return.

  • GDPR: Sink or Swim (Regina Lally & Kellie Peters; Databasix) 
    You can’t learn to swim just reading theory, and data protection is more than ticking a box. We’ll take you through a practical approach to implementing good data protection practice in your club to prepare for GDPR.

  • Leisure Trends (Dr Steven Mann, ukactive)
    The latest ukactive benchmarking figures; what is average in the UK fitness industry, and how you can be better than average.

  • Refining Your Data (Chris Phillips, DataHub)
    Making analysis easier, simpler, and faster. Improve your Sales and Retention through data. 

  • The ABC of Sales KPIs
    How to set simple KPIs so you can improve sales month on month.

  • The XYZ of Retention KPIs
    Understand how to monitor your retention efforts, find out which processes are working, and refine them.

You will get a wealth of ideas, tips, and tricks to get more members into your club, and get them to stick around longer. We want to get more members into your club, and help them to get fitter and healthier.
