The SFA Health and Fitness Expo is the latest step we have taken to distinguish Saudi Arabia as a world-class sports hub; one in which all people are empowered to live their best lives and fulfil their athletic potential — be it just as a hobby, as a social pursuit, or a career goal. The exhibition will help to transform our communities and economy, leveraging sports as a tool to safeguard our future. We welcome all members of the community to take part.”
Shaima Saleh Al-Husseini, Managing Director, the Saudi Sports for All Federation, added: "This event offers attendees an opportunity to meet the top experts and professionals in the field of health and fitness, network with vendors, and learn about cutting-edge fitness ideas and techniques that help create sustainable habits that lead to a happier and healthier society. The main focus of the event will be on showcasing the various sports departments, as well as healthy food sections, and daily sports activities performed by the most prominent athletic male and female trainers, who will offer support and valuable advice to attendees from both genders."
In line with SFA’s commitment to achieving the goals of Vision 2030 and the Quality of Life Program, the event will add to the Federation’s efforts to create a healthier Saudi Arabia and raise physical activity levels in the country. It will create an affirming and welcoming environment in which more people — including men, women, children, elderly community members and people of all abilities — are empowered to get fit and active by taking part in daily physical activity.
With the support of leading bodies such as the Ministry of Sport, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Investment, Saudi Food & Drug Authority, and SBC, the event will contribute to the growth and development of the Saudi sports industry, bolstering local sports infrastructure and transforming regional community sports.
