New digital engagement platform for Marine Corps Historic Half participants
QUANTICO, VA (March 19, 2021) – The Marine Corps Marathon Organization (MCMO) will launch its first-ever virtual expo this May to accompany live and virtual Marine Corps Historic Half Weekend events. From May 8 through May 15, participants will have the chance to tour the digital marketplace, take advantage of special offers, make purchases and engage with sponsors, partners, local businesses and various vendors and exhibitors.
The MCM Virtual Expo: May 2021 will be housed through EventHub platform and will include virtual booths featuring products, live interactions and programming to educate and motivate runners and supporters.
“The MCM expos have traditionally served an important role in connecting runners with the community of vendors and service providers that support them. These valuable interactions will continue in a new digital forum that will be as interesting to runners as it will be beneficial for our vendors, who are constantly innovating to improve the running experience,” said Rick Nealis, Director, Marine Corps Marathon.
Vendors and exhibitors can apply for a virtual booth beginning today at eventhub.net for $200. Vendors and exhibitors who submit an order for the May expo can also apply for space in the MCM Virtual Expo: October 2021 at the reduced cost of $300 and save $50.
