  2. Centros deportivos AQA. Estrategias para reducir las … DO1-151

    Something is changing in the sport center sector, and AQA in the district of Hortaleza (Madrid) is no exception. It is necessary to add the changing habits of current clients to the increased drop in members - Clients now use the center more intensively, which is generating a saturation that is affecting the level of service. The management of the center is doing everything possible to counteract the dwindling number of members by gaining new memberships.

    AQA is a chain that manages eleven sports centers in Spain, all of which are under a government concession for operations. AQA’s closest competition in the district of Hortaleza is the various sport centers owned by other national and international chains. But there is another new player on the court: low cost sports centers.
