Due to the COVID-19 pandemic worsening globally, and after on-going discussions with our partners; Fitness Australia, The Fitness Show, and key supporters we have made the decision to postpone the date of FILEX 2020, and Fitness Australia’s Australian Fitness Awards Gala Dinner.
At this time, the wellbeing of all our community; delegates, speakers, partners, award winners and other attendees is paramount. These are completely unprecedented times, and decisions like these are tough, but necessary, in the interests of the health and well being of the entire fitness industry.
We are working with our venue, the ICC, Sydney and all of our key partners to find a suitable date later in 2020 to reschedule FILEX, and the Australian Fitness Awards Gala Dinner. We appreciate your patience and will update you as soon as possible with revised plans for the events.
Andrew Simmons – Chairperson, FILEX
Barrie Elvish – CEO, Fitness Australia
