Vancouver Health Show 2012

Peter Davies of AHA MEDIA says

Today we went to the ever interesting Vancouver Health Convention. Located at the beautiful Vancouver Trade and Convention centre and overlooking Burrard Inlet, this location is very desirable and the convention succeeded in living up to its location. Do you like Protein Shakes, health bars, massage chairs, acupuncture, and everything else health related, then this was the place to be. Wall to Wall vendor booths, wall to wall people. We learned about Honey and some of its health benefits while drinking super healthy green juice. Awesome times!

We enjoyed Tommy Europe, Flora Health, Foxy Kickboxing, Nutra Cleanse,  Honibe and Kangen water
