Miami. Over 120 of these businesses will be in attendance as part of the Expo, Fitness Center, Food Court, WellPet area and Expert Speakers at Hyatt. Plus there will be a range of entertaining and informative events from expert chef cooking demos to live music with Felicia Rose to Belly Dancing, Fitness Fashions and more. “WellFest is a broad-based event that ‘expands the conversation’ about staying fit, eating well, reducing stress, understanding holistic healthcare and the range of therapies being offered, and so much more. The content that we will be offering resonates with a growing number of people, young and older,” adds Lipp. Sponsors for this Saturday and Sunday day-long event include: Acupuncture Associates, Celsius Energy Drink, Fiesta Pet Deli, Delray Center for the Arts, Delray Chamber of Commerce, Delray Library, Delray Medical Center, Gulfstream Business Bank, Health & Wellness Magazine, Hyatt Place Delray, Javita Coffee, Mint Fit 111, Naked Gourmet, Mind, Body and Spirit Café, Parenting Plus Magazine, Smart Car Palm Beach, Synergy Fitness Boca, The Crystal Garden, 21 Drops, Yoga Journey and Zaaz Studios. “We encourage people to participate in a ‘WellFest-lifestyle’ and benefit from being proactive about their health and well-being, as opposed to being reactive,” states Sandra Tribioli, Director of Operations. “The goal is to embrace preventative measures and focus on how the mind, body, spirit connection can impact our health in so many positive ways.” Speakers include a range of professionals and experts, who will speak on a number of interesting and important topics. They include noted area author Margaret Lembo, who has written several books for adults and one for children on Chakra and Crystals, and Dr. Brian Clement, of the famed Hippocrates Health Institute. “This is really getting exciting,” adds Tribioli. “The energy and enthusiasm continues to grow and we are all looking forward to showcasing Florida’s premier WellFest event March 8th and 9th. “It’s amazing to think that the event debuted one year ago and now we’re looking at holding a significantly larger WellFest,” Tribioli added. “Frankly, I’m not surprised at the interest in the event, based on the important content that we are offering, but delighted none-the-less that so many people have come forward to be a part of enhancing the WellFest Delray experience.” In just its second year, WellFest Delray has emerged to be a significant and important event, with proceeds going to support awards programs for local elementary schools students who advocate or exemplify the importance of fitness, good nutrition and self-esteem. The “Weekend of WellFest” March 8-9, 2014 (11AM – 5PM) will take place under a shaded open-air structure outdoors at Delray Center for The Arts (off Swinton and Atlantic Avenues in downtown Delray) with Expert Speakers at nearby Hyatt Place Delray. Delray Beach was chosen as the perfect place to launch WellFest, based on the community’s feel good vibe and substantial health and fitness-oriented business infrastructure. Bob and his team hope to build a “WellFest-oriented” lifestyle into the Delray brand, something that he believes can be accomplished in-part with WellFest Delray.
