For the first time, VIP and Ultimate Expo badges were mailed to Arnold Sports Festival attendees who purchased their passes by Feb. 1
. You can activate your pass below once you receive it in the mail. Once your pass is activated, it will serve as your ticket to the events included in your VIP and Ultimate Expo package.

Please note badges only were mailed and lanyards will be picked up on-site at VIP Check-In

IF YOU DID NOT RECEIVE YOUR BADGE IN THE MAIL, NO WORRIES. You can pick up your badge + lanyard at VIP Check-In at B-130 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center beginning on Thursday, February 29. 

IF YOU PURCHASED YOUR VIP OR ULTIMATE EXPO AFTER FEB. 1, NO WORRIES. You too can pick up your badge + lanyard at VIP Check-In at B-130 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center beginning on Thursday, February 29.
