International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness


IFBB is already actively working, with the collaboration of the French and Spanish National Federations; in the organization of the 2017 World Championships. In the previous days, Mr. José Ramos -IFBB Treasurer-, made respective inspection visits to Benidorm (Alicante; Spain) and Biarritz (France), checking the venues and hotels.

Taking advantage of his geographical proximity, José Ramos visited first the beautiful village of Biarritz, where next 1st. to 4th December will be held the IFBB World Fitness Championships, in the luxurious theater of the Municipal Casino. The event, organized by the French Bodybuilding & Fitness Association (AFBBF), will be as well the last Elite Ranking Qualifier event for Bikini Fitness and Bodyfiness.

Beside Biarritz, and during this week, José Ramos visited Benidorm -the tourist capital of the Costa Blanca- where next 2nd. to 6th November will be held the IFBB World Bodybuilding Championships that this year reaches its 71st. edition, joined by the Annual Congress.

Similarly to Biarritz, Benidorm will be the last Elite Ranking Qualifier event for Bodybuilding, Classic Bodybuilding and Men´s Physique. For third year in a row, the spectacular Benidorm Palace will be the venue of the Championships and, as novelty for this edition, will host, as well, the Annual Congress. Both events are directly organized by IFBB, taking advantage on its solid experience from previous editions.
