Dubai to host world's largest Fitness Expo in November

Dubai is no stranger to hosting the “world’s biggest” and “world’s fastest” landmarks and attractions, and this November, the emirate will host the world’s largest fitness exhibition. Fitness Expo will take place at the Dubai International Marine Club from 24th to 26th November, 2016.

Taking place on the same day as United Arab Emirates National Sports Day on 25th November, the event will promote health and wellness to novices, amateurs, and professionals, including 100 athletes. The expo will feature more than 100 live shows including performances, competitions, and talks, as well as a host of activities including martial arts, kung fu for children, bodybuilding, and muay Thai.

Visitors can also meet and greet famous fitness celebrities including Rich Piana, Craig Capurso, Sadik Hadzovic, Mike O’Hearn, Big Ramy and Shawn Ray.

Speaking at a recent press conference at the Dubai International Marine Club, renowned American body builder and an ambassador of Fitness Expo, Shawn Ray, said:

“It’s great to be here in Dubai. I have been around the world promoting wellness and I always wanted to be here. I think this is going to be a great event and I would love to be part of Fitness Expo and share my experience and expertise.”

Fitness Expo is supported by the President of the National Olympic Committee and Chairman of the Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Creative Sports Award, of Shaikh Ahmad Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. CEO of Fitness Expo, Arif Mirza, and Trainer.ae are organising the event with Dubai Sports Council.

Arif Mirza added at the press conference that Dubai is used to hosting these huge events, and the Fitness Expo will be the “largest expo of its kind, catering to every segment of society.” Fitness Expo is expected to attract more than 220,000 people, and 580 exhibitors have already signed up to showcase their fitness products and services.

Dubai prides itself on its “world’s largest” events, attractions and landmarks, and the emirate is home to soaring architecture, manmade islands and huge theme parks.

Some of Dubai’s iconic huge attractions and events include the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building measuring at 828 metres high; the world’s largest performing fountain with 6,600 lights and 22,000 gallons of water; the Dubai Mall, the world’s largest mall with 1,200 shops; the world’s largest fireworks display that took place on New Year’s Eve 2013, with the launch of 479,651 colourful rockets; the tallest hotel in the world, JW Marriott Marquis, measuring at 355 metres tall; and the largest cylindrical chocolate bar that weighs 370 kilos and measures 82cm in height.
