Nick Orton – CEO, BodyPower Ltd

Nick Orton is a 47 year old UK-based entrepreneur best known as CEO of BodyPower Ltd. This global fitness media enterprise boasts a portfolio that includes the hugely successful BodyPower Expo fitness exhibition series in both India and the UK, live events all over the world, clothing, merchandise and even an Eau de Toilette.

Educated at the University of Plymouth, the author of Think Big showed entrepreneurial instincts from a young age, utilising his passion and flair for business to start several small-scale enterprises as a student.

The self-made father of two has since gone on to develop no less than seven major expo brands, each going from zero to over the million (GBP) mark. Orton now has multiple investments in a variety of sectors, in different countries, including clothing, property, lifestyle, media, health food production and FMCG retail. Despite a successful stint in pharmaceutical sales, working as a salaried employee just wasnt the route that Orton was destined for. Despite the obvious financial pressures and risk involved, he embarked on a journey of self-employment and it was the UK and Irish exhibition industry where a formidable reputation was forged.

Having tackled both the B2B and B2C sector with a multitude of events, Orton sold his successful ‘Closer Still’ event organisation business, responsible for delivering trade shows like the Dentistry Show and Pharmacy Show. Instead of sailing off into the sunset, Orton launched BodyPower in 2009 with a very small team that included business partner, Ollie Upton, and brother, Steve. A long-time fitness enthusiast, the show was designed to inspire people to become fitter and to celebrate everything positive about fitness including the various power sports, athletes, trainers and brands. Orton and his team grew the UK event from around 8,500 visitors at the inaugural event to a staggering 91,000 in 2016  a growth of over 970%.

BodyPower now have strong roots in India through its Indian arm  BodyPower India Pvt Ltd headed by Mr Pradeep Singh delivers multiple athlete tours throughout prime cities in India  to spread the positive message about fitness and an expanding expo in Mumbai that is set to top 35,000 visitors.

Orton can now lay claim to a team of over 3,000 ambassadors spread across four continents as his passion for inspiring people continues to grow and grow. BodyPower will no doubt scale new heights in the years to come and Orton will continue to steer the ship.
