Posted on 22 June, 2018

The ukactive National Summit is expected to attract more than 400 senior influencers from across physical activity, health, policy, brand, media, research, the charity space, and local authority commissioning. It will be chaired by The Guardian & Observer’s Health Correspondent, Denis Campbell.

Among the many high profile speakers attending the event are former Olympic gold medallist James Cracknell OBE, Rt Hon Andy Burnham MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Health, Professor Kevin Fenton, Director of Health and Wellbeing, Public Health England, Parliamentarian and former Paralympian Baroness Grey-Thompson DBE, former Director of Strategy at number 10 Lord Andrew Cooper, and Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Public Health, Jane Ellison MP.

According to Christina Edscer, ukactive Events Manager, “This will be the third year in a row that we’ve held our Summit at Congress Centre.

We’ve chosen to return to the venue again in 2014 because of Congress Centre’s excellent location close to multiple transport links which makes it extremely convenient for delegates to get to. We also wanted a daylight venue with plenty of breakout space, along with a purpose-built stage set in the main room to avoid having to bring in extra equipment.

The Congress Centre ticks all those boxes for us.”
