If you’ve never been to one before, a local or regional wellness expo should be on your calendar this year. Here are some of the reasons why we love wellness expos and think you will too.
Start feeling better. The most obvious reason to visit a wellness expo is because you want to make a change in your life and need some direction. If you’re ready to look, feel and be your best, this is the perfect place to start.
Learn about a new product or service. I’m always amazed by the variety of treatments, diets and gadgets that are popping up in the wellness industry. What seems kooky today just might become the latest wellness trend tomorrow. Wellness expos are your chance to see the best of what’s happening right now.
Talk with someone. If you’re not quite ready to book your first cryotherapy appointment or invest in an expensive piece of fitness equipment, wellness expos allow you to discuss this with a representative first. You won’t find high pressure sales pitches, just knowledgeable professionals who are eager to answer questions about what they do.
Get active. One of the best things about wellness expos is the chance to practice health and fitness rather than just talking about it. Almost all of these events have hands-on classes and demonstrations to get you moving.
Feel inspired. Maybe you’ve fallen off your wellness routine a bit and could use some motivation. It happens to all of us! Spend a day at a wellness expo and you’ll find all of the support and excitement you need to get back on-track.
Meet like-minded people. Wellness expos aren’t just about the vendors. They’re also social events where you can connect with other local enthusiasts who share your interests and passion for wellness.
See what’s next. Looking to take your wellness game to the next level? If you think you’ve seen and done it all, a wellness expo is sure to show you new ways to continue improving your health, fitness and wellbeing.
And if you happen to be at the SXSW Wellness Expo on March 14th and 15th, come visit us at our booth! The SXSW Wellness Expo is one of the biggest and best in the country, with over 150 vendors showcasing everything from acupuncture to yoga pants. Hope to see you there!
