Here's Why Fitness Business Owners Should Join Us for BOLD 2021
2020 was full of many unprecedented challenges for us all—everyone can agree on that. Few people understand the gravity of the negative impact of COVID-19 better than business owners. Being a business owner in 2021 is now a symbol of grit, true ingenuity, and ultimate sustainability. That same passion and perseverance are the foundation of this year's 2021 BOLD conference— the wellness event celebrating and building on the tenacity and fortitude that you’ve shown to overcome one of the world’s greatest challenges.
The 2021 BOLD conference is three days of insightful breakout sessions, inspiring keynote speakers, and a celebration of what we all need this year—connection with others. Located in beautiful San Diego, CA from August 31 – September 2—this year's BOLD may look a little different, with a more intimate in-person event and a virtual attendance option—but the business education and tech know-how you'll get remain the best in the industry. We even have a free, limited virtual option available so everybody can get a little taste of what BOLD has to offer.
