Fit Expo Guide for Competitors and Coaches

Introduction to SD Convention Center and Fit Expo

Dream Jiu Jitsu has partnered with the San Diego Fit Expo so that our tournament can be hosted at the San Diego Convention Center. This event will be attended by over 50,000 people with hundreds of booths featuring groups and companies of the fitness industry. Since Dream is a part of a larger event, there are some unique circumstances that our attendees should prepare for before arriving.

Athlete Check In and Competition Process

  3. Weigh in at the Lobby booth.

  4. Enter the Fit Expo floor and walk to the Dream Tournament (map linked above).

  5. Arrive to the Bullpen 15 minutes before your division is scheduled to start.

  6. Compete and have fun!


When should I arrive?

Please plan on arriving at the Convention Center 1.5 – 2 hours before you are scheduled to compete. This will account for parking, checking in at the lobby, weighing in, walking to the tournament, and warming up before you compete.


For example, if you are competing at 11am, plan to park by 9am to have enough time.
