    Thumbs down Arnold Expo 2020

    Just heard that Optimum Nutrition pulled out of the Arnold Expo. Crazy! They were a fixture there...Doesn't look good.

    Same here Jdot! Was actually going to go to the show this year, having missed last year, but now I don't really care since they're not going to be there. Makes them look bad I think.

    So because ON, one of the least innovative supplement companies around, won't be at the expo you're not going?

    I think it was 2 years ago maybe? Both ON and BB.com had pulled out. It's expensive, and the companies that have their set base don't see the need to spend that kind of money. ON was probably dropping a +$1mil on the Arnold annually, and likely not getting good returns.

    I thought about heading out this year also. I haven't been out in the past 2 years but went every year before that for 7-8 years.


    The Expo is just so crowded. I know that's a lame, stupid comment but it really is. I mean bathroom lines are crazy, everything is so expensive, hotels are nightmares and the whole thing has become such a rat race. Maybe it's me getting older and grouchier in my old age, LOL!

    My feelings exactly with the main expo here, Bodypower. Way too busy, stupidly expensive to get in and queues to get into queues. I know supp companies pay a fortune to be there but quite often their products are more expensive than they are bought regularly online, plus most UK-based companies will have ‘Bodypower expo weekend’ special discounts on so there’s really no benefit to going unless you get your kicks from long lines of 18-20 year olds who’ve started leathering the gear 6 weeks after joining the gym.

    The hodge twins were over here a few years ago and it was a 3-4 hour queue for a photo op. No thanks.

    This. I only live 20 minutes away and I haven't bothered to go the past 2 years. The crowds are almost unbearable.

    I might go this year, we'll see.

    It'll be my 10th year, be there Thursday-Sunday. I go to the Expo early to wander around, then hang around the stage mostly, or go to the periphery events like the powerlifting meets, etc. Leave early to relax before hitting the night shows.
    I don't generally wait in any of the long lines anymore. I've had a lot of chance meetings with athletes and had some really good conversations. It's definitely still a great event all around I think... as long as you know what you're in for and show up prepared!

    I don't disagree with you on the company, I just thought they gave away the most stuff and was one of the only ones worth the line, as they actually gave a lot away. But like everyone else, I'm sick of the crowds and waiting in line for like 2 samples is dumb.

    It used to be fun. I went 4 years straight in college 2010-2013 used to walk out with suitcases worth of samples and rtds. Also used to eat my body weight in protein bar samples
