Rimini, 2nd July 2020 - In agreement with all the stakeholders, today IEG – ITALIAN EXHIBITION GROUP decided to reschedule the huge Riminiwellness expo, the event that, in fifteen years, has become the undisputed leader in the fitness, wellness, healthy nutrition, sport and movement sector, and hold it in 2021.
The overall international situation caused by the pandemic does not ensure trade members, professionals and visitors what has always been the expo´s strong point: being the world´s largest most important showcase for the sector´s innovations, thank to performances by the top global presenters and offering the best business opportunities, with the possibility of personally testing every kind of activity. And it is precisely the uncertainty of the regularity of the flight connections from several countries that is causing difficulty for the world´s training stars, trainers and all the international visitors, who are currently unable to program their participation in Rimini.
For Italian Exhibition Group this was an act of responsibility towards its public and all the partners involved in the event: the local area, exhibitors, trade, professional and industry associations.
However, while definitively postponing the fifteenth edition of Riminiwellness to the coming year, IEG - who in recent months has remained in constant contact and networked with all the trade chain´s key players – is already at work on producing an event in the autumn of 2020 conceived exclusively for the sector´s professionals. The aim is to create an event for networking on business prospects, providing views on the current situation and short-term forecasts and sharing new business solutions and innovative models at the service of the overall professional community and the entire manufacturing and production chain.

Italian Exhibition Group (IEG), listed on the MTA (screen-based equities market) organised and managed by Borsa Italiana S.p.A., is a leader in Italy in the organisation of trade fairs and one of the main operators in the trade fair and conference sector at European level, with structures in Rimini and Vicenza, as well as further sites in Milan and Arezzo. The IEG Group is notable in the organisation of events in five categories: Food & Beverage; Jewellery & Fashion; Tourism, Hospitality and Lifestyle; Wellness, Sport and Leisure; Green & Technology. In the last few years, IEG started a significant expansion process abroad, also through the conclusion of joint ventures with local operators (for example, in the United States, Arab Emirates and in China). IEG closed the 2019 financial year with consolidated total revenues of € 178.6 million, an EBITDA of € 41.9 million and a consolidated net profit of € 12.6 million. In 2019, IEG totalled 48 organised or hosted fairs and 190 conferences.
