Fort Lauderdale’s first participatory expo and fitness show at the Broward County Convention Center gives attendees the chance to experience fitness activities, not just see them. The interactive, entertaining and educational Sportstyle Show was created by New York publisher and trade show producer, Formula 4 Media to showcase the “Athleisure” trend – how performance and athletic clothing has taken to the street and how it lives in South Florida. The show encompasses fitness, fashion and fun.
“Come in your workout clothes, shop for new ones, try new mini-classes, learn from area fitness and wellness specialists and participate in the many workouts we’ve brought together under one roof for one day,” says, Renee Grant, owner of Runner’s Depot, retail sponsor of the show.
Joining national brands like Altra, Crocs, Skechers, Tyr and Le Tigre, and new boutique brands like EleVen by Venus Williams, JLEW Bags, ElliptiGO, Sparkfire Active, Fjallraven and OOFOS, are fitness and wellness companies from all over South Florida.
