Wellness competence centre at FIBO
In addition to exhibitors’ products and services, the Wellness competence centre in Hall 8 is the place to go for all interested visitors at FIBO. Here, experts from the German Wellness Association offer visitors advice on the topics of exercise and nutrition and allow them to try out new applications themselves. Calm and relaxation can commence right on site, with a team of specialists under Rose Egger and Bo Poomsean offering visitors free Thai sports massages. Furthermore, Jimmy Outlaw will be offering sage advice on the latest nutrition trends, and there will be free samples of freshly mixed smoothies. The programme also includes guided tours for hoteliers of relevant exhibitors and special exhibition areas.
