.Rimini, 4th June 2017 . Today, Rimini Fiera and the Romagna coast saw the conclusion of the 12th edition of RIMINIWELLNESS, the world´s largest show dedicated to fitness, well-being, business, sport, physical culture and healthy eating, for the first time under the management of Italian Exhibition Group S.p.A., the company generated by a merger between Rimini Fiera and Fiera di Vicenza.
Mind-boggling numbers recorded at this great event: 268,120 attendances with significant numbers of foreign visitors from all over the world (80 countries involved with operators and visitors from all over Europe, Russia, Asia, the Americas, China and Japan), more than 400 companies, the entire trade show centre occupied, over 20 km of coastline implicated.

What´s more, 430 accredited journalists, 142 million media contacts (partners being EUROSPORT, M2O, QN/QS) and incredible peak contact moments on the social networks such as the 144,585 impressions on Instagram and post coverage of 1.4 million over the week.
RIMINIWELLNESS, with the winning integration of B2C (WFUN) and B2B (WPRO) and the three core elements, RIABILITEC, FOODWELL EXPO and RIMINISTEEL, thus confirms itself as the undisputed leader with an extraordinary capacity to be ahead of new trends and catalyze innovations from every corner of the world. An experience that has been so virtuous over time that it has now generated MOVE!, the new autumn event dedicated to fitness and sport which will be staged at Vicenza Exhibition Centre on 28th and 29th October next, the Veneto Region having always also had a strong inclination for well-being and physical activities.
For Lorenzo Cagnoni, President of Italian Exhibition Group: ´RIMINIWELLNESS has become the absolute leader by taking the historical reasons behind the success of our tourism to hand and re-launching them: organization, hospitality, physical activity and well-being. We are now the platform of reference and one of the top three world leaders in this important department with a unique and winning format. The 2017 edition represents a significant milestone for the optimal strategy adopted with the creation of a winning international network and partnerships with top global players. And now, in the wake of RIMINIWELLNESS, we are preparing for a new and wonderful undertaking: MOVE! in autumn at the Vicenza Exhibition Centre´.
The RIMINIWELLNESS opening ceremony saw a spectacular display of Calisthenics by Team Burningate. The cutting of the ribbon was attended by Andrea Corsini, the Councillor for Tourism in Emilia-Romagna and the Mayor of Rimini, Andrea Gnassi. They were accompanied by two Olympic swimming champions, Federica Pellegrini and Simone Sabbioni, and the IEG management: President Lorenzo Cagnoni, Executive Vice President Matteo Marzotto and Managing Director, Corrado Facco.
And, throughout the 4 days of the Show, there was a constant flow of VIPs from the sports, political and entertainment worlds, as well as famous chefs and food bloggers in a continual roll-out of emotions.
An experience in the name of sport adrenaline, positive energy and movement in all its forms in a unique territory, the homeland of Wellness Valley, the perfect place for exporting Italian-style well-being all over the world.
