Here's a link to a new performing arts center in Orlando FL
Possible venue for Mr. Olympia ?

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/orange/orl-dpac2208aug22,0,3583880.story


Edit - not going to happen - here is the info for the 2012 Mr. Olympia

For those who want to know in planning for the 2012 Mr. Olympia, September 27th - 30th will be the weekend, in Las Vegas.  Should be pretty much the same schedule

Friday, September 28th - Prejudging Mens
Saturday, September 29th - Finals Mens
Sunday, September 30th - Seminar


The 2012 OLYMPIA WEEKEND will take over Las Vegas on September 27-30, 2012. One of the world's greatest fitness expos will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center along with many of the premier evens such IFBB Pro figure, fitness, bikini, women's bodybuilding, under-212 bodybuilding, strongman, power-lifting, grappling and more! On the evenings of September 28 and 29, the action moves to the Orleans Arena for the Mr. Olympia

Looks like a very nice venue, but it is too small. Currently, the Orleans Arena has the capacity for 9,000 people or so, and last year, they had close to 7,000 people in the audience for the Mr. Olympia finals.   Las Vegas has been an incredible successful city to host the Mr. Olympia, because of the capacity of a myriad of hotels, the convention center, and of course, a large enough arena.  Besides, you can make a vacation of it, seeing lots of things in the city too.

last years was awful, looked so plain and generic

Look back at 2003, 1994, 1995, 2002 etc
The stage was different each year with cool creative layouts to the stage

Seeing the success of the Tampa Pro, with half the industry showing up, it'd be cool to see more shows in FL

To even use the word Success and Olympia together only shows how someone is so lost into this sport.

Why don't they move it back to the Los Angeles area? Bodybuilding has its most significant following here in Southern California. Why not hold it at the LA Civic Center (next to Staples Center) or the Santa Monica Civic Center?

Looks like it's gonna be a very nice venue.....but is there a high enough concentration of gays (in the state of FL) to support a Mr. Olympia?

HAHAHA. Seriously though, how come an "olympia" has never been held in a gay friendly place, like SF? It makes sense......shit, I bet they could pack CandleStick with 100k gays.....

We tried to get a pro show here some years ago...we were going to hold it in the Shubert Theater in New Haven, where we had held the annula and very successful Gold's Classic.

Worked with Wayne Demelia....it just was not feasable...would have been nearly impossible to even break even.

Mostr pro shows make little, if any, money at all.

The Olympia....maybe the Hartford Cicvic Center...or maybe the Oakdale/Chevrolet Theater in Wallingford....but it would never happen.

And using Olympia and "sport" is also wrong on so many levels Cheesy
