In order to maintain the tremendous growth the health + fitness industry has seen over the last decade, all stakeholders must be prepared to open new markets and further develop existing ones. Providing a platform on which the industry can achieve its goals, FIBO—the world’s largest health + fitness tradeshow—has arrived in the USA.

Opening the 2020 event is the American Health + Fitness Forum (AHFF), taking place November 6-7. Following on the success of the FIBO European Health + Fitness Forum (EHFF), FIBO Global Fitness Africa Summit, and FIBO CHINA Health + Fitness Development Conference, this high-caliber congress invites leaders across the health + fitness sector to learn from and interact with global thinkers and innovators on both the supplier and operator sides.
