FIBO & FIBO CONGRESS 2020: COVID-19 forces organizers to reschedule

The leading fitness trade fair and the specialist congress cannot take place from April 2nd to 4th or 5th in Cologne as planned. The risks due to the current situation due to the novel corona virus (COVID-2020, SARS-CoV-19) are too high.

The decision was made to protect trade fair / congress visitors, exhibitors and employees. Reed Exhibitions, as the organizer of FIBO, is currently looking together with Koelnmesse for the best available dates in the second half of the year for the leading trade fair FIBO and FIBO CONGRESS.
