Last month it was announced that after 15 years of hosting the prestigious Mr. Olympia competition at the Orleans Arena, this year, it is moving to the Zappos Theater in Planet Hollywood. The Mr. Olympia expo was still expected to take place at its usual location in the Las Vegas Convention Center; however, it has now been confirmed that is not the case.
Like the Mr. Olympia contest, the organizers behind the major annual event are moving the expo, from the Las Vegas Convention Center to the Sands Expo and Convention Center. It is a lot closer to Planet Hollywood, at just a few blocks away, which is a nice change compared to the long trip from the Orleans Arena to the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Another noteworthy development for the Mr. Olympia Expo is that it has switched to a more mainstream name to match the diverse experience it’s hoping to deliver with ‘Olympia World Fitness Festival’. The dates for the competition are still the same from Wednesday the 16th of December through to Sunday, with the expo going from Friday to Saturday.
