    25th Anniversary Annual International Conference 
                      November 16 ~ 19, 2016
                             Orlando, Florida 

                              One Ticket Equals Four Medical Fitness Conferences

We welcome our distinguished panel of presenters to this 25th anniversary version of the Medical Fitness Association in Orlando this November 16-19. Join us as we live out our theme for this year, “25 Years of Prevention through Active Lifestyles.”  This year’s annual conference focuses on the future of the integrated model of medical fitness and its worldwide impact on healthcare delivery. With the incidence of disease on the rise, the need for more medically integrated, outcomes based and delivered exercise and fitness is never more relevant in our industry than today.

Just one conference ticket provides you with access to four days of presentations, multiple round tables, trade show exhibits and early morning workouts. The countless networking events provide you the chance to connect and be energized by your colleagues. Participate in the MFA Bingo Game for Best Practice Partner Prizes! Each attendee will receive a Bingo card upon registration check-in. To be entered in the raffle drawings, you must black out the entire Bingo card by attending social events, meeting MFA members and visiting our Best Practice Partners on the Expo floor.

We will be offering the first sitting of our brand new Facility Director Credential and the Medical Fitness Facility Director Credential as a pre-conference activity on Wednesday, Nov 16, 2016. Join us for this historic launch of a credential sure to raise the professionalism of the entire industry.

We are pleased once again to join with Athletic Business Conference and Expo, along with our Global Wellness Partner Technogym, and encourage you to visit this fabulous trade show featuring our Best Practice Partners and the latest technologies and services to keep your facility on the cutting edge.
