Act fast as tickets are running out for the inaugural Industry Forum and Aqua Summit. This is an exciting opportunity for everyone in the aquatic exercise space for both networking as well as education and development. The 2023 Aqua Summit is the first of its kind and is scheduled for October, with the Industry Forum taking place over one day and the Aqua Summit running consecutively across two days of immersive learning.
What is the 2023 Aqua Summit?
The Aqua Summit is the first forum and conference organised by the Aqua Alliance – a small group of fitness professionals who came together in the disarray of the global pandemic to collaborate and support each other. Those three founding members are Marietta Mehanni, Dominic Gill, and Jenn Schembri-Portelli.
Marietta’s own business focuses on the education of other fitness instructors and has spent more than 30 years working in the aqua exercise space. Dominic has created Aqua Fitness Online, a virtual community with a worldwide following of aqua fitness enthusiasts. Jenn has played an active role in the aquatic exercise industry over many years through her own business, JSP Solutions. The three fitness professionals had previously leaned on one another to discuss industry issues and share ideas. When fitness businesses ground to a halt in 2020, they realised the need for a platform to gather aqua professionals, get various sectors to align, and boost collective morale. From the chaos that was COVID-19, the trio united to form The Aqua Alliance. Their mission is to provide opportunities for those working within the aqua industry to connect, learn, and grow together.
The 2023 Industry Forum and Aqua Summit have drawn in leading academics, aqua instructors, allied health professionals, and business experts as presenters to offer an immersive development program.
What can attendees expect to gain by attending the 2023 Aqua Summit?
The Aqua Summit is a two-day conference facilitated by leading experts from Australia, New Zealand, and the UK. Engaging lectures and dynamic masterclasses will explore cutting-edge research and introduce innovative teaching methods designed to level up the aqua exercise credentials of participants. Attendees will also earn 10 CEC points.
Where and when will the 2023 Aqua Summit be held?
The Aqua Summit will take place in Sydney on October 21st and 22nd at Gunyama Park Aquatic Centre, Zetland. The event follows the Aqua Industry Forum, which is being held on October 20th, 2023. The Industry Forum can be attended in person at Zetland, but will also be streamed live via Zoom, so even those who are unable to make it to Sydney can reap the benefits of this education and networking opportunity.
