The Olympia Expo

Right at the top of the Olympia weekend "Must-Do" list is attending the 2-day Olympia Expo. In fact there are many who travel from far and wide to visit the Expo specifically... foregoing the evening contests held at night in trade out for a night out on the town or to attend the many star-studded Olympia After Parties in Sin City!

The Expo started in the morning at the Hilton Convention Center on both Friday and Saturday and went on until 5 PM.

We handed out more samples fromm the top supplement companies than any other booth at the Expo. Bodybuilding.com was incomparable for traffic and the always-popular Olympia T-shirts were on hand for free for those who entered their E-mail addresses at the computer stations right in the booth. Another main attraction at the Bodybuilding.com booth was the media section where the Chapman Media Group taped webcast shows throughout the weekend.

Brenda Kelly's 2006 Olympia Expo Girl Power Hour

I had a spectacular show on Saturday afternoon called Brenda Kelly's 2006 Olympia Expo Girl Power Hour. It was an awesome array of the best female bodies and athletes that were there for the Olympia weekend. There were 4 separate interview sessions that came in to join me for the webcast.

Interview #1:

    Interview #1 was with "The Nutrition Magician" Kim Oddo and 5 of his 7 Olympia Figure athletes who were competing that very night. It was so exciting to hear their thoughts and meet them all right before the big show.
