Visitors attending the three-day health and well-being extravaganza were treated to seminars and workshops from some of the world's most prominent experts in the field, alongside close to 100 hand-picked local and international exhibitors of products and services in the healthy living sector.
North Port Events CEO Dona White says feedback from visitors and exhibitors indicates there's a real appetite for this kind of show in New Zealand.
"We're pleased with the support and feedback we received at the inaugural Healthy Living Show. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity for many New Zealanders to see some of the world's most prominent experts, as well as innovative products and services," says Mrs White.
Bob Proctor (The Secret, You Were Born Rich), Dr Libby (Accidentally Overweight), Professor Sir Lloyd Geering (Christianity without God), Shamash Alidina (Mindfulness for Dummies), Frank Ferrante (star of the award-winning documentary May I Be Frank) and Victoria Boutenko (Green for Life) were just some of the world-renowned speakers at the show.
Attendees walked away with tools on a wide range of topics including how to live a more abundant and prosperous life, reducing stress, achieving success, nutrition, mindfulness and creating healthy living spaces.
The seminars proved life-changing for some, with visitors thankful to the organisers for having the vision to put this show together - see some visitor testimonials below:

"Wow, this is such a fantastic, sexy show, thank you so much

Exhibitors ranged from products and services relating to mind/body connection, exercise, nutrition, organics, treatments and natural beauty to consciousness and perception, environment, sustainability and more.
"Feedback from exhibitors proves the show is a valuable tool for companies to engage with their target market and promote their products and services," says Mrs White.

"We look forward to putting this event on for New Zealanders next year with even more local and international experts and exhibitors," says Mrs White.
