Over the weekend of the 20th & 21st of July, EventCity Manchester plays host to the UK MMA Expo 2013.
The main crux of the event will be the exhibition, with stands being taking by businesses from all facets of the MMA, Martial Arts and nutritional industries sampling & selling their products.
Over the weekend we will be hosting seminars from the UK's top names from within our sports for which we are preparing to release more names, details and info about in the coming weeks.
We have a KnowledgeBase Theatre in which we're hosting FREE talks to include (amongst other things) nutrition, hydration, psychology, media interaction, S&C, injury management, injury prevention, working the corner, "Understand the judges for fans & fighters" hosted by UFC Referee Marc Goddard plus a number of Q&A sessions.
We are proud to be announce we will be hosting the UMA British No Gi Open Championships on the Sunday
On the Sunday Marc will also deliver one of his full day seminars on MMA judging/refereeing.
We have professional instant photo/signing sessions hosted in a cage housed within the expo. The cage will also be used for open workouts hosted by some of the UK best gyms
In the adjoining hall there will be a full pro evening MMA promotion. This is going to be a true spectacle unlike most would have experienced in the terms of entrances, production and an atmosphere created by a tried arena set up. Currently, the same team used by X-factor live is undertaking the shows sound & lighting. Additionally, the same set up (possibly minus the some of the pyros) will be used for a daytime amateur event where we hope to showcase the best of the UK's rising talent.
The list of events & ideas continues to grows so there will be some changes as the event draws closer however, the focus will remain on the UK, UK talent and increasing both understanding & participation within the sport as whole.
Best of all day passes for the main exhibition hall are only £10 or just £15 for the weekend. For anyone that has attended sport or fitness exhibitions before will know this is ridiculously low. Under 14's are also free with a full paying adult!
These offers not only give back to you but are to help you guys encourage your friends and family to learn about the sports and destroy the misconceptions many still have.
