LA Fit Expo Guide

Introduction to LA Convention Center and Fit Expo

Dream Jiu Jitsu has partnered with the LA Fit Expo so that our tournament can be hosted at the LA Convention Center. This event will be attended by over 60,000 people with hundreds of booths featuring groups and companies of the fitness industry. Because Dream is a part of a larger event, there are some unique circumstances that our attendees should prepare for before arriving.
