The 10th European Health & Fitness Forum (EHFF) is the opening event of FIBO 2023, the largest global event for fitness, wellness and health.

Following on from the success of last years ‘sold out’ event, EuropeActive and FIBO invite you to discover 'Transformational leadership in the fitness & physical activity sector'.

The forum will also introduce the 2023 EuropeActive/ Deloitte European Health & Fitness Market Report (to be published later in the spring), the most comprehensive annual research on the fitness market.

As with previous editions, an impressive line-up of speakers, case studies and debate will help delegates prepare for the challenges ahead.
