The inaugural SHE Expo will bring together women from Statesboro and beyond this month to empower them to make better decisions about their health, wellness, lifestyles and beauty. The event is also for families, community-based organizations, medical professionals, and fitness, beauty and wellness experts.

In addition to providing education for attendees, the Expo, to be held on May 12, will also be full of inspiration and fun. The day-long event will provide information on health issues and available services and resources, as well as comprehensive wellness. Organizers say the event “promises to invigorate the Statesboro community to keep health and wellness a priority.”

Held at the Nessmith-Lane Conference Center, the Expo will be set up in four key focus areas, all designed to engage attendees in interactive experiences that fit how they live, work, play and learn. Exhibitors and sponsors were selected based on how their products and services fit with the focus areas and the program offerings.

For the families who attend, there will be a special Family Station where they can take a break, and for the children to play. There will be a Kids Zone, toys, children’s clothes and accessories, family entertainment, child care, baby care and educational tools. You’ll also find resources and products, and for new moms, a lactation/nursing station.

There will also be a Lifestyles station, which will focus on the comforts of home and how we cultivate relationships. Exhibitors will include everything from home care to food tastings, and everything in between. There will be furnishings, home improvement, appliances, kitchenware, gardening and more.

At the Inside Out station, attendees will be challenged to look at how they can become their best selves, inside and out. There will be information on women’s health and wellness, as well as beauty and fashion. You’ll also find health educators, weight loss, gyms, personal trainers, clothing companies and boutiques, jewelry and accessories, salons, spas, clinics and hospitals, and community-based health organizations and medical professionals.

Well Connected is the station where attendees can find out how to better engage in civic life and community, as well as about charitable giving and volunteerism. You can also learn about how technology affects us now and into the future. There will be representatives from financial advisers, insurance, banks, community organizations, nonprofits, political organizations, business, technology, education and professional organizations.

Attendees at the Expo will receive medical information, free health screenings, samples and makeovers, and see beauty, health and fitness demonstrations. There will also be six different 45-minute classes.  You can preregister for free courses on self-defense, hair and make-up tutorials, best massage techniques and more.

In addition to receiving giveaways from participating exhibitors, there will be hourly prizes throughout the day, and each attendee will have a chance to win the SHE Expo grand prize. You can claim a free ticket in advance to increase your odds of winning. Present your early bird ticket at the SHE registration table upon entering the Expo to enter.

Major sponsors for the event include East Georgia Regional Center as title sponsor, Statesboro Herald, Connect Statesboro Magazine and Statesboro MOMents as media sponsors, and Ricky Lane DDS as a presenting sponsor.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to be the title sponsor at the first ever SHE Expo here in Statesboro! Partnering with the Statesboro Herald to plan something magnificent and enticing for women of all ages in Bulloch County and the surrounding areas has been really fulfilling. We look forward to everyone coming out to experience all that it will have to offer. We hope that attendees will walk away rejuvenated and inspired. The health and wellness of our community is a priority for us at East Georgia Regional Medical Center, and we hope that this free event will bring fresh, new ideas and empowerment to Statesboro for many years to come,” said Erin Spillman, director of Marketing at EGRMC.

The Expo is open to the public and admission is free. The event begins at 10 a.m., and ends at 4 p.m.
