In December of 2018, FIBO — the world’s largest event for fitness, health and wellness — is coming to the United States. The inaugural FIBO USA will take place December 5-8, 2018 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
Backed by the long-running success of FIBO Global events in Germany, China, South Africa, Australia and Mexico, FIBO USA will unveil trends from around the world. It will also bring together members of every sector of the fitness industry, from health club executives to trainers and instructors; buyers for schools, hotels, cruise ships, and the military; fitness enthusiasts and beyond.
Opening the event is the FIBO American Health + Fitness Forum (AHFF), a high-caliber congress and networking event aimed at enhancing operator excellence. The Forum invites business owners, managers and experts from the health and fitness sector to learn from and interact with global thinkers and leaders on topics such as sales, marketing, customer relationships and behaviors, technology, retention, and human resources.
The Women in Fitness Association (WIFA) will also host a forum in which every woman professionally representing the industry can discuss and uncover issues, initiatives, and opportunities for women to rise to their fullest potential in the health and wellness space.
Beyond the forums, FIBO USA offers every visitor a wide variety of physical and continuing education opportunities. By taking advantage of the FIBO FitPass, professionals and fans alike enjoy unlimited access to daily workouts, workshops and lectures. Certification courses will also be offered by fitness juggernauts Zumba®, Spartan, the American Council on Exercise (ACE), and the Athletics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA).
