With Olympia Weekend fast approaching, organizers are putting final touches on plans to present upgrades throughout the entire event, including its popular fan expo. The 2-day gathering of fitness enthusiasts, celebrities and fitness brands will be held this year at The Venetian Expo & Convention Center, one of the most spectacular trade show venues in the world.

Located a short drive up the Strip from the Planet Hollywood (Olympia Host Hotel), the new expo venue clears the way for organizers to expand with more space, more exhibitors, more celebrity appearances, and several new event attractions.

In addition to the morning pre-judging of the various Olympia divisions, the December 16th and 17th Expo will now feature a full slate of world championship competitions spanning all corners of fitness, combat and strength. Many of these events include opportunities for fans to compete!

Olympia President Dan Solomon explains, “Moving the expo to the Venetian Convention Center is a big win for the entire fitness industry. This is one of the most prestigious trade show venues in the world, a world class facility. I’m proud of how far we’ve come in terms of overall production, while creating a more diverse fan experience that goes far beyond bodybuilding.”

The list of attractions at this year’s expo includes America’s Strongest Man and Woman, Hoopin’ with Heroes Classic 3 on 3 Basketball, Bare Knuckle Fighting Championships, USPA Olympia Pro Powerlifting, Olympia Strict Curl National Championships, International Arm Wrestling Championships, The Angel Competition Fashion Show, World’s Strongest Gym Championships, Olympia World Armlifting Super Series Championships, Megatron World Wrestling Championships, Zumba, Olympia World MAS Wrestling Championships, along with several other events and presentations, including the new Olympia University educational series.
