FIBO is the Leading International Trade Show for Fitness, Wellness and Health! It is an annual event held in Cologne (Germany) in the month of April (4-7 April in 2019).
From the official post-event press release:
Purchasing power exceeds EUR 2 billion
Purchases quickly add up when – like this year – 145,000 visitors come to Cologne, i.e. 2,000 visitors more than in the previous year. These included more than 84,000 trade visitors travelling from all parts of the world to browse innovations, sound out the market and do “big business” equipping their clubs, facilities and practices. About one in three trade visitors came with concrete intentions to buy and concluded the corresponding purchasing contracts at FIBO. The average purchasing volume amounted to EUR 77,000 – and EUR 125 on average for private visitors.
Fully booked: 1,105 exhibitors occupy all available exhibition areas
The trade show’s truly international flair – paired with top decision-making expertise – was also felt by the 1,105 exhibitors who had travelled from 49 countries to the Rhine occupying every bit of the 160,000 m² of available exhibition space. Over half the companies attending – 57% to be precise – came from abroad, thereby further underlining FIBO’s role as the No. 1 international trade show. Those countries considered the pacemakers in the fitness market can be found at the very top of the exhibitor rankings: Germany (478 exhibitors), China (103), the USA (52), the Netherlands (44), Poland (43) as well as Great Britain (37), Italy (36) and Spain (27).
My very first FIBO attendance, I was able to visit the fair on 5th of April for a few hours.
I usually publish my photos in the order in which I shot them, so there are less people in the first photos and more at the end.
