Back in September, SportsArt and Radisson Blu worked together to create the ‘Watts For Water’ campaign in celebration of Radisson’s Responsible Business Action Month. The contest spanned six hotels in Oslo, Norway and produced some wonderful results not only for us but for charity as well. Joakim Olandersson, the Regional Responsible Business Coordinator, shared his thoughts on the campaign in a message to his colleagues when all was said and done:
Through its new and exclusive distributor, Kavosh Harekate Dena Co. (KHD), SportsArt will showcase its exclusive line of strength and cardio equipment. Sportex 2017 is an exhibition for sportswear and sports equipment, held in Tehran. The 16th annual event will attract many local producers and manufacturers as well as many foreign suppliers. “Introducing our innovative products to a new group of individuals allows them to have a hands-on experience and engage with the SportsArt brand,” said Paul Kuo, President of SportsArt. “With a trade show like Sportex, individuals have the opportunity to see first-hand the quality of our products and gain a deep understanding of who we are and what we provide our customers with.” Kavosh Harekate Dena Co. will present SportsArt’s strength and cardio equipment to attendees, including gym and studio owners, facility center managers, sports shop owners and individual users. Mr. Giovanni Berselli as SportsArt’s EMEA Sales Director, Hotel Channel will also attend the fair to support KHD’s team the best, especially during the meetings with managers of large and high ranked hotels in Iran scheduled to be held at SportsArt/KHD booth for Sep. 5th and 6th, among which a meeting is fixed with top managers of Parisian Hotels Complex as the largest chain hotel complex in Iran covering more than 20 hotels across the country. SportsArt’s strength and cardio products will be available for preview at booth No. 9 in the southwest location of Zone A. About Kavosh Harekat Dena (KHD) Co. — Being active in field…
SportsArt today announces its first installation in the United Arab Emirates as the exclusive provider of eco-friendly gym equipment for The Sustainable City. In a modern application of social, economic and environmental sustainability in the built environment, SportsArt’s contribution of cardio and strength equipment will further showcase The Sustainable City as a model for sustainable living, work, education, and recreation.
Six Radisson Blu hotels in Oslo will be participating in the first-ever WATTS FOR WATER contest, in partnership with SportsArt and their ECO-POWR™ product line. The contest will feature one of SportsArt’s ECO-POWR™ bikes placed in the lobby of each hotel for 9 days in September. These bikes convert the energy generated by a user’s workout into utility-grade electricity that is placed back into the hotel’s power grid, helping to reduce carbon footprint and make gyms more sustainable. Guests will be encouraged to hop on the bikes and work out. As they pedal, the total number of watts generated is displayed on the console of the bike. Guests will then take photos of the watts they’ve generated with their phones and post their picture to Twitter or Instagram. At the end of the month, SportsArt will choose one winner from each hotel who will win a free night’s stay — but most importantly, every watt generated will go towards a donation to the Just A Drop charity. For every 100 watts generated, a child will receive clean drinking water for life! Radisson Blu’s Watts For Water Contest is an example of how to combine ECO-POWR™ technology with an engaging event that can drive interest and awareness to your business or organization. It is a great way to promote a business’s interest in green practices and to contribute to charity. Learn more about Just A Drop by visiting JustADrop.org.
Innovation means an endless pursuit of the next best thing, but it is easy to lose track of where you come from when your sights are always set on the future. At SportsArt we hold tight to our roots and the original vision that our founder, Paul Kuo, had for this company to help ground us as we move forward. Today we had time to catch up Paul to discuss the company’s history in the fitness industry.
Green: It’s the color of the Emerald Isle, the hue of sickness and envy, and a shade associated with grotesque monsters. And its most universal interpretation conjures imagery of nature, a vibrant symbol of the environmental movement and healthy living.
Movements aren’t created by a single act or decision — they are the accumulation of all the little things that came together to inspire change. Creating a more sustainable earth is a movement that is going to take everyone making little changes in their daily lives. Your fitness facility can play a role in helping make the earth a greener one workout at a time with these simple changes.
It is easy to forget how big the world really is when you only work in one place. Our team was quickly reminded of this upon attending FIBO 2017 in Germany this year, where we met with many more employees and distributors of SportsArt — including our very own Giorgio Gervasoni and Giovanni Berselli. We sat down with them to learn more about how they handle business outside of the US and their experiences in the international market.
FIBO 2017 was a fantastic experience. I have been anticipating attending ever since I was hired here at SportsArt America, especially since my position as Global Marketing Manager often has me working with our international teams and distributors. Between the chance to meet in person with people I’ve only interacted with digitally and all the fun stories about past shows from those who attended years before, FIBO grew more exciting and intimidating as the days to the trip counted down. Sure I had heard a lot, but what was I really supposed to expect? Now that I know first-hand, here’s a summary of what I’ve learned for future FIBO newbies:
