As every year, the FIBO trade fair increases the number of visitors. This time the number of guests exceeded 140,000 with 1,100 exhibitors from 49 countries. HMS was the only exhibitor from Poland.
HMS Fitness presented two types of solutions this year:
- comprehensive solutions for commercial fitness,
- home fitness products including many technical novelties.
The group for home sports enthusiasts features among others such novelties as dumbbells with precise load scaling option – having detachable weights and a small weight stroke from the SR series. Among numerous products we presented it is worth listing bumpers and kettlebells presented with new designs, as well as training bands arranged in new, functional sets. The HH HMS Premium series of dumbbells with a stainless, satin finishing and rubber rings increasing the comfort of use made a big impression.
Likewise, load chains for squats were highly attractive judging by the queues. We were the only company at the fair to offer this product!
Commercial fitness range was based on the combination of products into functional paths offering comprehensive training experience for the client and support for coaches in their daily work. At the stand, we most often talk to managers of large fitness networks from Western Europe – mainly from Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and France.
Although this year the number of visitors from Poland at out stand was slightly lower than last year (about 700 people) we did not complain about the lack of compatriots: we had the pleasure to talk not only to the managers of large gym chains in Poland but also to the representatives of smaller elite clubs.
On the one hand, business meetings let us boast of our products. On the other hand, conversations with enthusiasts, personal trainers, instructors inspire us to develop new projects.
