Awake and Empowered Expo

The 3-day expo includes an exciting line up of topics presented by speakers who are pioneers and experts in their fields. Featured keynotes are nationally recognized, but equally remarkable is the quality and depth of their panel participants and workshop leaders, all whom are doing groundbreaking work in the areas of health and wellness, spirituality and technology. The goal of guest speakers and panels is to share their views and provide real world tools that will inspire positive change, while encouraging attendee interaction and exchange of ideas with one another.
