About IDEA’s Events

For over 35 years, IDEA has been the trusted leader in setting the standard for the fitness and wellness industry by providing the world’s best education and content. Through our events, we reach thousands of personal trainers, group fitness instructors, mind-body professionals, program/fitness directors, business owners, nutrition/health coaches, healthy living bloggers, and fitness enthusiasts. We recognize that participants make an important investment to attend our events and as such, IDEA is committed to offering substantive, content-driven education that can be supported by research and accepted industry practices.

We begin the process of selecting education approximately 8 -12 months in advance of each conference. As a result, the presenter application deadline dates are very early. Please pay close attention to the dates shown below, as we are unable to accept late applications.
