MADISON, WI - September 17, 2012 - Athletic Business Media and fitness software leader Motionsoft are teaming up on a contest to bring independent club owners and executives to the new iClubs Conference at the Athletic Business Conference & Expo in New Orleans, November 28-December 1, 2012. Winners will receive a two-night hotel stay, a $250 airfare credit and free registration to the iClubs Conference. The contest is being held through Motionsoft's FillMyGym program and participants can sign-up at motionsoft.net.

The three-day ideas exchange includes roundtables, seminars and networking events focused on strategies for new and veteran independent club operators. Among the dozens of featured speakers will be Peter Guber, Hollywood producer and CEO of Mandalay Entertainment, and industry veteran Art Curtis of Curtis Club Associates, who has guided the growth of some of the industry's largest independent organizations.

"We found there was a major need for independent gym owners to be able to get together and discuss strategies to prosper in an era of discount fitness centers and corporate chains," said Peter Brown, president of Athletic Business Media. "This event, part of the industry's largest fall trade show, is perfectly timed with the gym owners fourth-quarter buying cycle and helps them incorporate new strategies in time for the New Year's rush."

"When we heard Athletic Business was helping create business solutions for independent club operators, we jumped on the chance to support it," said Hossein Noshirvani, Motionsoft EVP. "We believe in helping every way we can to make this industry stronger and smarter and that particularly includes empowering this group of entrepreneurs."
