Countdown to Bodypower Expo 2015
– Countdown to Bodypower Expo 2015
Europe’s Largest Consumer Fitness Expo Continues to Set the Benchmark
It’s that time of year again. For the record number of fitness enthusiasts who have already purchased tickets and the thousands more planning to pay on the door, BodyPower Expo is on the horizon.
Europe’s largest consumer health and fitness event enjoys a near fanatical following, with organisers inundated with messages of support from a fanbase who liken the expo to a second Christmas.
With the audience set to break the 70,000 barrier and the show occupying new, bigger halls in the NEC this year, BodyPower Expo 2015 is billed as the biggest and best event to date.
Organisers have reported a record breaking show cycle, with over 300 leading global brands now occupying more than 600,000 square feet of floor space, roughly equivalent to the size of ten football pitches.
BodyPower CEO and founder Nick Orton still retains the same excitement levels after more than 20 years in the exhibition business: “There’s nothing quite like seeing an idea come to fruition. My business talks are called “Think Big” and that’s exactly what we had to do when I started BodyPower with my team. We’re now the fifth largest consumer event in the UK, and I believe that we continue to improve the show year on year.
We go to great lengths to ensure that our visitors come away from the show inspired, and I think the show creates a really unique atmosphere that is driven by the enthusiasm of our visitors, the quality of our exhibitors and by the countless stars that come to the show.”
Since its formation in 2009, BodyPower has become a staple fixture on the domestic and international fitness calendar. The hotly anticipated annual event is attended by visitors from over a hundred countries, providing an unrivalled spectacle of fitness and power sports, fantastic competitions, engaging visual displays and an exciting assortment of educational seminars.
All over BodyPower there are chances to participate, with a blend of have-a-go sessions aimed at improving technique, teaching the basics and learning from industry experts. Of course, there will also be a familiar series of challenges such as Bench Your Bodyweight, 6 Minute Push Up, Plank & Press and Skipping Challenge as the show gives visitors the opportunity to get involved.
BodyPower Director Ollie Upton explains, “Behind the scenes we spend months working hard to make sure we offer visitors an incredible experience at BodyPower Expo. We make sure that everything we offer is of the highest standard; from competition to brands to athletes, and this is reflected each year as the show grows bigger and bigger. For anyone thinking about coming along, I’d suggest getting your tickets early and avoid being disappointed!”
Visitors to the expo can expect to see some fantastic names, with current Mr Olympia Phil Heath, Mr Olympia 212 Flex Lewis, Commonwealth Gold Medallist Zoe Smith, world-famous wrestler Hulk Hogan and inspiring educators such as Phil Learney and Mark Coles.
