The Wellness Show returns to the Vancouver Convention Centre this month offering three full days of information and exhibits focusing on everything from fitness and pet health, to stress-reduction and cheese seminars. The theme for 2016 is Healthy Families so you’ll be able to gather practical tips on health and well-being for everyone in your family.

Last year, more than 30,000 people sampled and chatted with 300 exhibitors, and attended over 100 informative and entertaining seminars, workshops, fitness and cooking demonstrations. Exhibitors focus on health and wellness, beauty, active living, leisure, healthy aging, kids health, mental well-being, pet health, and living green.
Highlights this year include the Organic Market presented by Nesters, the new Healthy Families Zone, the Kids Activity Area, Celebrity Cooking Stage, and the new Relax and Refresh Lounge. Attend a fitness demonstration and try a new way of working out, or get a massage, reflexology or a makeover using organic beauty products.
There are 5 stages featuring Fitness Demonstrations (Ballet Fit, Yoga for Managing Anxiety, Gymnaestrada), Women and Wellness Presentations (Natural Ways to Deal With Life’s Changes, Skin: Glow From the Inside Out, and a Power Panel featuring Lorna Vanderhaeghe, Keri Adams, and Karlene Karst), Living Well Seminars (Stress‹The Hormone Connection, Mindful Relationships, The Overloaded Executive), and the incredibly popular Celebrity Chef Stage, presented by Alligga (featuring Chopped Champion Alana Peckham, Curtis Luk, Dana Hauser, Tobias Grignon, Jesse Jobin, Sarah Stewart, and everyone’s favourite; Tojo). Attend a Cheese Seminar presented by The Dairy Farmers of Canada. Sample and learn about the cheese’s origins and potential pairings.
