Annual exhibition celebrates health with elements of World Cup and YOG
Singapore, 1 July 2010 – Singapore’s largest health and wellness event is back! The annual Health & You Exhibition is jointly organised by The Straits Times Mind Your Body and Lianhe Zaobao – LOHAS, both published by Singapore’s leading media organisation, Singapore Press Holdings (SPH). This year’s Health & You Exhibition will be held at the Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre on 3 and 4 July 2010.
Nestlé Singapore is the Presenter of the Health & You Exhibition for the second year running. The leading food company has been supporting the exhibition since it was launched in 2005.
Now into its sixth year, the Health & You Exhibition is a 2-day event where health-conscious Singaporeans can find leading health, nutrition and wellness products and services under one roof. It is expected to draw over 100,000 visitors this year.
There are also lots of activities and programmes at various interesting thematic zones for visitors of all ages. Coinciding with the fact that Singapore is hosting the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) this year and with the current World Cup fever going on, there are opportunities for visitors to the exhibition to try their hand at some of the sports and games played at the YOG. They can also take part in the MILO® Freestyle Football Contest and stand to win $1,500 worth of cash and prizes.
In addition, there will be great discounts and offers from the exhibitors and more than $50,000 worth of gifts and prizes to be given away, including Nestlé goodie bags worth more than $15 each.

Mr Leslie Fong, Senior Executive Vice-President of SPH’s Marketing Division, says: “The Straits Times Mind Your Body and Lianhe Zaobao LOHAS have both been well received by Singaporeans who are generally becoming more health-conscious. The Health & You Exhibition is where our readers can get relevant information on health and wellness, and try the latest healthcare products in the market.”
Mr Suresh Narayanan, Managing Director of Nestlé Singapore, says: “The public’s response to the Health & You Exhibition last year was overwhelming and we are very excited to partner with SPH in presenting it again this year. This exhibition allows Singaporean to learn practical suggestions and tips on eating right and living well. By having everything under one roof, we hope to make it convenient for everyone, especially those who come with their families.”
