NEW BIGGER LOCATION – FIRST FLOOR OF THE RIVER CENTER

We are proud to announce that The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana Expo at The Louisiana Marathon has moved to a bigger convention space on the first floor of the Baton Rouge River Center. As the event continues to grow, these changes are necessary and we thank our friends and supporters at the River Center, Mardi Gras organizations, Visit Baton Rouge and City Hall to make this possible.  We are increasing from 25,000 square feet last year to 70,000 this January.

For Exhibitors, 2015 will be much easier than any prior year.  We are on the first floor and you can simply pull your vehicle in through the River Center tunnel on River Road and we are in the main Exhibition Hall on the right.  There are plenty of locations to load-in and load-out.

GET INFORMATION AND GREAT DEALS AT THE EXPO

The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana Expo at The Louisiana Marathon will feature exhibitors showcasing the latest trends, designs, and advances in running shoes and apparel from various sports, fitness, and nutrition information and products.  For 2015, we will once again be in the Baton Rouge River Center.

Learn more about the world of running, health & fitness and the products & services from key partners and sponsors of The Louisiana Marathon. We are also be fortunate to have our charity partners present to address any questions about their causes and inviting you to participate in their outreach efforts.

The best thing about the expo is that it is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
