LIW 2012 18th-20th September

With LIW 2012 just around the corner next week, I wanted to let you know about the packed schedule the FIA is delivering.

Meet the team
The FIA stand (H465) will be in the Industry Lounge. Please come over and talk to me and the team about all our latest developments including spogo, the Research Institute, Flame 2013, new policies, our programmes and of course, if you’re not already, why you should became a FIA member.

The future of indoor running
Date: Tuesday 18th September
Time: 14:15 – 14:45
Location: Education Village, Hall 17
I will be joining Kevin Hewitt, founder and CEO of Running Unlimited and Ben le Vesconte, Head of Education at Vivobarefoot, a specialist footwear company to highlight how the sector can benefit from the 70% of recreational runners who run indoors in the UK. 

Flame workshops

Date: Tuesday 18th September
Time: 14.00 – 16.10
Location: Education Village, Hall 17 (at the rear)
With top tips, you will learn how you can gain sector acclaim at Flame 2013.

The legacy begins

Date: Wednesday 19th September
Time: 12.20 – 13.20
Location: Education Village, Hall 17
Those of you who know me well, will of course know I don’t like to blow my own trumpet (too much!) but obviously my keynote; the Legacy begins is a must attend session. I will talk through how post-Games your trade body is working for you and making the UK the most active nation in the world.
