About FIBO 2012
Every year in spring, the international fitness industry meets at FIBO, the Leading International Trade Show for Fitness, Wellness and Health.

State-of-the-art training equipment, intelligent health promotion concepts under the umbrella of the FIBOmed concept which was specifically developed for this segment in 2008 already, up-to-date specialist lectures and action-packed events: FIBO not only offers the best overview of the market but also direct contact to companies and their innovations.
