The annual Comrades Expo has a new venue! Scheduled for three days from Thursday, 25 August to Saturday, 27 August 2022, the Expo will be hosted at the Durban International Convention Centre (DICC) for the first time in 22 years.

The iconic Comrades Expo has a long history with the City of Durban as the main registration point for athletes registering for the Comrades Marathon.

Spread over 5,000 square metres, this year’s Expo is expected to be another innovative and exciting affair with exhibitor bookings now open.

With its hosting at Durban’s landmark venue, the Comrades Expo will bring together runners, supporters, sporting enthusiasts, Comrades Marathon sponsors and partners, as well as local and international visitors.

Showcasing the best sports brands and the latest in running apparel, shoes and accessories, fitness equipment and allied products, this Expo is not to be missed.

The fun and exciting Comrades Expo has, over the years, been attracting more than 110 exhibitors and over 50,000 visitors. It is an integral part of Comrades race week and serves as the official registration point for The Ultimate Human Race, where thousands of athletes will collect their race packs, goodie bags, share information and finalise registration ahead of race day.

The Comrades Expo with its forty-year history as South Africa’s largest and longest running expo was first hosted at Durban’s Royal Hotel in 1983. It was then moved to the Old Pavilion on the Durban Beachfront in 1984 and then to the Durban Exhibition Centre the following year, with a change of venue for only the 2000 race when it was hosted at the Durban International Convention Centre.
