Leaders from across the physical activity industry have gathered for the first ever Active Uprising event – organised by ukactive – which is being billed as a "three-day celebration of physical activity".

More than 1,200 people are in attendance at today's conference part of the event, where they will hear a speech from former health secretary, mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham, and a panel session with Britain’s most successful female Olympian, cyclist Laura Kenny.

Today's Active Uprising Conference comes ahead of the ukactive Awards, and the Active Uprising Weekend, which is aimed at encouraging all across Greater Manchester to celebrate the fun and benefits of leading an active lifestyle.

According to Steven Ward, ukactive CEO, the event has attracted "unparalleled levels" of interest from outside the industry, drawing tech investors, construction giants and public health professionals.

“We are in a unique moment," he said. "The pursuit of the golden thread of physical activity is opening up new opportunities for collaboration.

“There have never been more people locally, nationally, internationally on the same team – fighting for the same goals and wanting to deliver the same outcomes.

“This is a unique moment to get the nation moving, a unique moment for our Active Uprising.”
