We would gratefully appreciate any referrals also you might be able to give about people we should be in touch with.

HEALTH, SAFETY & COVID RELATED FAQs

Singapore is a highly vaccinated country. 95 per cent of Singapore’s eligible population have completed their full vaccination regimen under the national vaccination programme. About 70 per cent of the total population have received their vaccine booster shots. There is Omicrom in the community, like every country, but the numbers are manageable and the Singapore Government is committed to no more restrictions/lockdowns.

I AM FULLY VACCINATED: All countries can travel freely into Singapore. Singapore has fully reopened travel. There are NO pre-departure tests needed. There are NO on-arrival tests. There is NO quarantine. We are FREE, you are FREE to travel and enjoy Singapore.

I AM NOT VACCINATED: You can still travel to Singapore but you must quarantine for one week in a hotel. We are advising unvaccinated persons not to travel to Singapore, as the restrictions here for unvaccinated people are very strict with limits on your freedom of movement. We would love you to be here, we love everyone regardless of their vaccination status, but it would not be a good trip for you.

If you are fully vaccinated; there are NO pre-departure tests needed. There are NO on-arrival tests. There is NO quarantine. We are FREE, you are FREE to travel and enjoy Singapore. You arrive at the airport and you are FREE to do whatever you like, just like pre-covid travelling. This ensures you do not need to worry about being positive on arrival. If you do feel unwell during your stay you should test yourself and seek medical attention if you require it. We have moved into an era again of self accountability.

All attendees must be (i) fully vaccinated at least 15 days prior to attending the event, or they must (ii) show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken no longer than 24 hours prior to the event or they must (iii) show proof of recent recovery from COVID-19 infection to access the event.

To ensure you the safest and healthiest environment possible we undertake the following: (1) hand sanitisers are located throughout the venue, (2) high-touch areas are regularly sanitised throughout the day and (3) masks are encouraged. We adhere to all Singapore national standards.

For international attendees, you will be asked by the Singapore Government to download an app called ‘TraceTogether’ but as off 1 May it will only be used to enter nightclubs. We expect by 1 June, this app will be completely redundant and not used. To reiterate above, you are FREE in Singapore to move around very easily.

No there is not, they are not necessary, so we do not do these.

Inevitably this will happen to someone, maybe you. As the saying goes, ‘sh!t happens’. If you test positive and cannot attend, we would issue you a full credit note for any ticket(s) you purchased to use this credit towards any future FIT Summit event where we would welcome you gladly. You would also gain access to all the ondemand talks after the event.

No. The event is 100% on and will not be cancelled or postponed. The Singapore Government have committed to bringing back travel and events to Singapore on a large scale. Singapore already (from mid-Feb) has hosted large events including its 13,000 person Singapore Air Show. You can book your flights and your tickets with full confidence, the event is on!

GENERAL FAQs

Our business festival attendees are health, fitness and wellness business owners, managers and investors. Industry professionals, influencers and government bodies also join us. 2,500+ attendees. 1,000+ meetings. 500+ companies. 300 dinner guests. 300 VIP delegates. 75+ speakers. 50+ exhibitors. 50+ popups. 1 incredible week. By joining us you’ll meet new clients, prospects, partners and friends from across the world.

Do not expect your regular trade show or sit down conference. At the Festival you’ll experience an immersive multi-day thought leadership summit, an interactive experience exhibition, a showcase of start-up brands and a glittering awards dinner, with multiple networking events, product launches, activation events, site visits, wellness classes and workouts. It is a must attend event for all health, fitness, wellness, hospitality, spa, HR and sport executives.

There are three ways to be involved; (i) as a sponsor, (ii) as an exhibitor, or, (iii) as a delegate.

At a brand level, there are various levels and types of sponsorship to get your company optimally positioned and activated in front of a high-quality targeted audience. Speaking. Exhibiting. Branding. And for our partners, we run digital activations pre- and post-event, alongside physical activations onsite. If you wish to discuss the best way for your company to get involved at a brand level, reach out today to blair@thefitsummit.com and jolin@thefitsummit.com to arrange a call.

You and your team can also simply get tickets to attend as delegates, details in the next question.

A General Ticket will allow you access into a number of areas, talks and experiences across the 14-15 June. This ticket is fantastic value for money and especially good for managers and start-ups to meet an incredible number of contacts and connections, as well as enjoy much of what the Festival has to offer.

A VIP Ticket offers everything we have created to experience, including an exclusive Leadership Summit and Networking Reception on 13 June, alongside access to VIP Zones, Meeting Areas and On-Demand Content. This ticket is ideal for business leaders and executives who want to optimise every second of their trip for business development and engagement.

Yes, as mentioned above, if you are vaccinated and can travel to Singapore using one of the VTL countries mentioned above, you can easily enter Singapore and do so without quarantine.

Casual or athleisure. Your comfort is key. Given the air-con exposure all day we would suggest no shorts or open shoes.

PARTICIPATION FAQs

Speaking roles are normally wrapped up in sponsorship as we prefer to work to the highest degree possible with each company and partner – for branding, profiling, marketing, thought leadership and business development. Speaking opportunities could be in the form of a keynote address or panel session, done online (pre-recorded) or in-person.

We work with different brands, operators and non-operators to achieve their business goals; from the industry’s biggest operators and tech companies to start-up boutiques and solution providers.

We are a world leading platform with a network of global business leaders and stakeholders. As an established, new or growing brand, there are great opportunities for you to leverage on to achieve your business goals whether that is lead generation, company profiling, thought leadership promotion or market engagement. A dedicated account manager will work alongside you pre-, during and post-event to ensure maximum value and exposure.

While all companies are welcome to exhibit, we prefer to exhibit companies and solutions providers that are developing new and engaging solutions. Numerous booth sizes, locations and options are available, check the various sponsorship levels and identify which suits you most. Click here for more information: https://thefitsummit.com/2022-world-summit-sponsorship

Now. Many partners have already confirmed the opportunities they want, from speakers, to exhibition spaces to awards sponsors and dinner tables. We recommend that you contact us as soon as possible before all opportunities are gone.

Each year we recognise leading companies and executives from across health, fitness, wellness and hospitality. The dinner includes the awards ceremony itself, special guest entertainment, fantastic food and drink. We present 10 Awards in 2022. Each award is given based on their achievements and successes in the past 12 months (in the Asia Pacific Region). The Awards Dinner is only for sponsors and VIP Ticket holders and will take place on the night of 14 June.

You can (i) sponsor an award, (ii) secure a VIP dinner table, or (iii) simply attend as a dinner guest. It’s an unmissable night so book your ticket(s) today before they sell out. For more information on sponsoring an award and/or becoming an awards judge please contact ross@thefitsummit.com

We seek to champion and highlight any brand, we encourage you to share any data, key metrics, successes from your brand or another you admire. Applications will be received at the end of Q1 2022, we will let our network know when applications are open. For details about the various award categories and previous winners see: https://thefitsummit.com/events/awards

This is not a hybrid event. We are recording talks and presentations from the event and making them available ondemand post-event but there is no simultaneous virtual event.

Activities start on 13 June for speakers, sponsors and VIP delegates, while activities for general delegates start on 14 June. However, we will arrange site visits and workouts across the week for all attendees so we would encourage you to be in Singapore for 3-4 days, we promise it will be worth the trip.

We encourage you to consider buying/securing VIP tickets to attend so that you can access all areas, as well as the Leadership Summit and VIP Reception on 13 June. That said, whether you are a VIP delegate or General delegate we encourage you to be at the event for as long as possible – there is so much to do, so many people and companies to engage. We will create a group online to engage and connect before the event, ensure you connect there to say hi, set meetings, rendezvous points and attend the site visits and workouts to connect with even more people.

We have secured discounted room rates at the Fairmont hotel – which adjoins the event venue and only a few minutes’ walk from all activities. We strongly recommend that you stay at this venue whilst in Singapore for your stay. You can book your accommodation directly through the links on this webpage.
