London Health show 2016: An intimate yet informative affair*


Last Thursday I wrapped up warm, slipped into some stylish yet comfy shoes and headed up to the Olympia London for the London Health Show*. 
As we all know health, beauty and wellness is big business and ever expanding in the UK.
What with bloggers flourishing in these areas too, what better way to see what is happening in the market than to attend an event?

The London Health Show specifically showcased distributors from all sectors within the health and wellness market and what would be at the forefront for 2016. 
This was much smaller than the exhibitions/ events I have attended in the past, so it really gave us a chance to meet and chat with distributors, industry insiders and discover new products properly. 

I took my mum along for company as she is a qualified Holistic therapist and loves trade exhibitions.
The floor was divided into 6 sections. Nutrition & supplements, beauty, complementary health, sports and fitness, organic and natural product and healthcare technology.
Not only did the event offer access to distributors but offered live demonstrations, conferences, CPD workshops and presentations with a variety of speakers.
Obviously I targeted Beauty, food and complementary therapy first as who doesn't like to be beautified, whilst eating great healthy snacks and being massaged by a professional?


In between browsing  we enjoyed stopping to watch a hulafit demo as well as listen to a few speakers.
Our particular highlights were a branding, pr and marketing tools workshop given by Cheryl Hersey, the Director at Action Pr
We also found Director and chair of BANT  Miguel Toribio-Mateas incredibly interesting.
He gave a workshop on personal nutrition which was insightful.

A few of my stand out distributors were:
Queen Of Oil - The whole team was lovely and gave us an excellent discount on their 100% Argan oil.
Sheila’s Natural products- were really attentive and knowledgeable.
Inspiral - was one of the busiest stands and for good reason. They had great banter and made sure that they engaged each person. We walked away with a lot of kale-Os snacks!
Attis UK -As a lover of natural affordable skincare. This stand drew my eye straight away and we left with a few goodies to try out.


I really enjoyed my time at the London Health Show 2016. 
Not only was it great to meet distributors who are passionate about their products but it is also a excellent way to network, find new brands, gain insightful information about products and receive excellent discounts!

Until next time........
