FIBO 2023 to showcase latest disruptive fitness technologies

FIBO 2023 to showcase latest disruptive fitness technologies
April 9, 2023

FIBO 2023 to be held in Cologne from 13th to 16th April will for the first time be deicating a separate area for a new generation of suppliers to showcase their latest disruptive fitness technologies.

Visitors and investors, tech-savvy fitness fans and retailers will find the latest disruptive technologies as well as innovative training software and hardware solutions of a digitalised fitness and health industry.

These include new exhibitors such as Multipull and Dewboard, who have created true training and analysis all-rounders for everywhere with their devices to go. Likewise, key players like EGYM come to FIBO with a big case. EGYM will present three different studio concepts as best practices in a showroom. Included: smart premium solutions, trainerless studios as well as physiotherapeutic concepts.

Future Forum
In the immediate proximity of Tech Valley, in Hall 7, C64, FIBO is organising this year's Future Forum together with its partner, EuropeActive.  In exciting lectures and expert talks, visitors will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the fitness world of tomorrow and actively drive the future of the industry.

Thursday will be dedicated to the biggest trend of recent years, digitalisation. Top speakers will show how digital processes and the implementation of fit-tech can offer better service and expand the market.

On Friday morning, the focus will be on raising standards, the associated professionalisation of the sector and the necessary up-skilling of employees. This is the only way to increase confidence in the sector. The afternoon is all about health. Speakers will offer solutions to the challenges faced by the health sector and highlight the role of fitness training in people's well-being.

The Future Forum on Saturday offers a real highlight. The whole day is dedicated to community and empowerment. Presentations range from gender equality to the LGBTQIA+ community and are as exciting as they are valuable for the entire industry - from CEOs to end consumers.

Ready, Set, Pitch: Open Mic for Start Ups
This year, FIBO offers young start-ups with the latest disruptive ideas a unique opportunity. In the midst of the Future Forum, they will have two hours to pitch their ideas, products and solutions during the Tech Valley Open Mics on Thursday from about 12 pm. With large companies and investors, the audience includes exactly the right target group to use FIBO as a kick-off for great success. Shortly after the announcement, 19 start-ups had already registered.

FIBO pursues the vision of a strong and healthy society and as a global network makes an essential contribution to a long and fulfilling life for people. At the annual FIBO Show, therefore, all players from the fitness, wellness and health sectors come together and form the hot spot for innovations, investments and trends for an active lifestyle.

Over the course of four days, FIBO offers not only business, networking and continuing education at the top level, but also numerous exciting and impressive live experiences. The next FIBO Show will take place in Cologne from 13th-16th April 2023.
