The FITposium team started preparation for the 2017 conference the very next day working to coordinate speakers, venue, and format for the annual event.

We also have some very big announcements happening for the FITposium brand to be announced in early 2017.

However, in the interim, we are measuring the success of the FITposium 2016 event based upon how the community does moving forward. We want to see the attendees launch their ventures, pursue the passions, overcome their obstacles and earn their own success.

It is not enough for our team to continue holding these events. We will be watching to ensure that our community is using the information we share.
