New Two Oceans Expo venue a success

Exhibitors and visitors were very happy with the new venue and electronic registration process for the 2013 Two Oceans Marathon Expo, which took place 27-29 March. The pre-race expo was this year hosted at the Cape Town International Convention Centre for the first time.

Every year the largest running-related expo in the Western Cape serves as both the official registration point for the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon and an opportunity for last minute shopping for the thousands of runners who entered the marathon. 

With over 45 000 visitors attending the expo, it is a popular exhibition area for retailers and suppliers alike with exhibitors offering fitness assessments, expo-only specials on their products, etc.

Race technical sponsor, adidas, made the most of their prime position at the entrance to the exhibition area to show case their latest technology, Boost, proudly on display with their eye catching yellow (associated with the Boost launch). They also had their #myjourney commitment wall where people could write messages.
