Among the worldå‘s foremost leaders in mind-body medicine, Deepak Chopra, M.D., will deliver the keynote address at the inaugural Spa & Resort Expo and Conference and the Medical Spa Expo in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 15 from 9:00 A.M. to 10:00 A.M at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Calif.
Chopra, who has addressed the United Nations, the World Health Organization and major U.S. medical organizations, is renowned for introducing Quantum Healing, which integrates the powers of the mind and body to foster a natural healing process.
“I am honored that the Spa & Resort and Medical Spa Expo and Conference has asked me to be the first keynote speaker,” said Chopra.
“This will be a very exciting, stimulating and eye-opening experience for all who attend as we learn how to recognize and act upon the miraculous power of coincidence that can spontaneously fulfill our desires and tap into the true potential that rests within each of us. I am looking forward to this very special event at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Feb. 15.”
Chopra is the author of 36 books. His works have been published on every continent and in dozens of languages. His books have sold nearly ten million copies in the English language alone.
The new Los Angeles shows are an extension of the successful Spa & Resort & Medical Spa Expos held in New York City for the past two years. The first L.A. event will be open Feb. 15 - 16, 2004.
According to Greg Topalian, Vice President and Show Director of the Spa & Resort and Medical Expos and Conferences, “We are extremely pleased to have Dr. Deepak Chopra as our special guest and keynote speaker at our inaugural conference and expos in Los Angeles. Who better to set the tone for the spa industry than Dr. Chopra? His insight and advice for everyone in the spa and wellness arena are extraordinarily valuable. This will be the spa experience of 2004 in L.A.”
Topalian noted that advent of the shows in Los Angeles was prompted by the rapid growth and enormous success that was experienced in New York City for the past few years. Twice as many companies participated in the 2003 event than in the previous year. Attendance doubled as well.
“Los Angeles is the largest spa market in America,” explained Topalian. “In fact, California is home to the highest concentration of plastic surgeons and dermatologists. More than 16,000 medical spa-related personnel work in the state. There is no question that our Spa & Resort and Medical Spa Expos and Conferences will enable many companies to bring their messages directly to the vital L.A. marketplace where they can meet prospective customers face to face.”
Thousands of professionals in the spa and resort and medical-related fields are expected to attend the event in Los Angeles. Show organizers, Reed Exhibitions, will also conduct Spa & Resort and Medical Spa Expos and Conferences in New York City, April 18-19 at Pier 94, and at the Miami Beach Convention Center, Sept. 12-13.
Known worldwide as the author of dozens of books, Chopra’s titles include, “The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire: Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence,” “Golf for Enlightenment: The Seven Lessons for the Game of Life,” “Grow Younger, Live Longer: 10 Steps to Reversing Aging,” “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success,” and “How to Know God: The Soul’s Journey into the Mystery of Mysteries.”
Chopra is the Founder/CEO of the Chopra Center at La Costa in Carlsbad, Calif. where he continues to revolutionize common wisdom about the crucial connection between mind, body, spirit and healing. He set the cornerstone for a medical model that promotes greater self-reliance and self-awareness as the most valuable personal and societal assets for creating health.
