Bodypower is holding its 10th anniversary expo on May 11th– 13, with an American casino theme. This expo has developed drastically since its beginning and here’s all you need to know about the history of Bodypower.
Bodypower’s first expo was back in 2009, when Nick Orton, CEO decided there was no show within the UK primarily dedicated to the fitness sector. After analysing a whole range of sports, Nick decided there was a market and the chance to bring all these organisations and sports together. This resulted in the creation of Bodypower.
Nick has always had an entrepreneurial flair, creating multiple businesses while he was a student! He then worked for a pharmaceutical company and became an exhibition organiser, planning multiple events for various organisations and sectors which allowed him to gain the skills in order to create Bodypower.
The show began in 2009 with only USN and Dorian Yates being the well-known names around believing in Nick and his dream. After multiple years of growing, with great organisations joining the Bodypower cohort, this year’s 10thanniversary is expected to be bigger and better than ever! Over 100,000 people are expected to make their way to the NEC over the 3-day event, with people travelling in from all over the world.
