ascinating FIBO”, “FIBO fitter than ever”,


“Crowd-puller FIBO”, the specialist press


reported after FIBO 2011. And indeed, this international trade show for fitness, wellness and health once again posted new records: 58,100 visitors, 581 exhibitors, and an impressive floorspace of 75,000sq m across 12 exhibition halls. FIBO 2012 – which takes place in Essen,


Germany, from 19–22 April – will be the biggest FIBO ever before moving to an even larger space in Cologne in 2013. This year, 60,000 visitors from more


than 100 countries are expected, as well as 600 exhibitors from 35 countries. FIBO will also be even more varied and international this year; companies from outside Europe are increasingly taking advantage of the event to premiere their products and innovations.

FIBO event director Olaf Tomscheit

FIBO will be inviting 250 international visitors to the second International Reception on the roof terrace of the Hotel Atlantic on the Thursday night. The popular shuttle service from


Düsseldorf International Airport is also continued, and will be available one day before FIBO opens its gates.
