The Arnold Strongman Classic is now one of the most high profile events in the strongman calendar. Beginning in 2006, events in boxing, martial arts and figure skating were added at Nationwide Arenamarker.

The Arnold Expo is held in the Greater Columbus Convention Centermarker, while finals of the bodybuilding, fitness, figure, and strongman competitions are held in the Franklin County Veterans Memorial Auditorium.
