Sports & Fitness Expo
The United States Air Force (USAF) Marathon will host a two day Sports & Fitness Exposition at the Ervin J. Nutter Center, Wright State University, on Thursday, September 18, 2008 from 12:00 noon to 7:00 p.m. and Friday, September 19, 2008 from 12:00 noon to 8:00 p.m. Expo vendors will have the opportunity to promote and sell their products and/or services to thousands of runners, health & fitness enthusiasts and spectators. The Sports & Fitness Exposition is free and open to the public.
Initial estimates show that about 18,000 people attended the 2007 expo and spent roughly $525,000 on purchases and lodging during the event. Our USAF Marathon runners represent the typical running community by being an affluent and well-educated group of people. Our runners represented 50 states and 6 foreign countries in 2007. This gives expo vendors the opportunity to connect with a large and global target market of health & fitness enthusiasts. The 2007 USAF Marathon experienced a 25% increase in runner registrations. Our goal for 2008 is 10,000 runners participating in the USAF Marathon thus increasing the number of people attending and dollars spent at the expo.
The expo offers merchandise sales opportunities, sampling, exhibition, running clinics, stage floor performance/demonstration opportunities, speaker's forum and more. Our professional staff will work with your organization to help you achieve your marketing goals and ensure promotional success.
