The Boston Marathon expo, which has historically been held at the Hynes Convention Centre, will be held in a new location in 2018.

According to the Boston Athletic Association website, “number pick-up and the John Hancock Sports & Fitness Expo will be located at the Seaport World Trade Centre at 200 Seaport Boulevard in Boston.” In past years, the expo has been held at the convention centre located on Boylston Street, the iconic approach to the Boston Marathon finish line.

The 2018 expo, which annually attracts upwards of 100,00 attendees, will be held April 13-15 ahead of April 16 race day.

Seaport World Trade Centre is a 4K run (or walk) to the east from the Hynes Convention Centre, which is scheduled to host a conference the same weekend as the 2018 Boston Marathon. The Ambulatory Surgery Center Association Annual Meeting 2018 is currently scheduled on the event’s calendar as of October.

Boston Marathon registration for 2018 closed on Sept. 20 as the maximum number of registrants was reached for the iconic point-to-point race. The Boston Marathon begins in Hopkinton, Mass. and finishes on Boylston.
