More visitors, more brands, more international participants – FIBO CHINA 2017 impressively underscored its significance as the leading fitness trade show in Asia. Some 20,589 visitors from 47 countries – 80 per cent of them trade visitors – attended the fourth edition of the trade show in Shanghai in September to learn. That means the attractiveness of FIBO CHINA increased by 28 per cent in the span of just one year. The exhibitor roster at FIBO CHINA grew as well: a record 131 companies with 300 brands took advantage of the trade show, which is organised jointly by Reed Exhibitions Deutschland and Reed Sinopharm Exhibitions.
