Mannatech, Incorporated (NASDAQ: MTEX), the leading innovator and provider of naturally-sourced supplements based on Real Food Technology® solutions, hosted more than 4,500 Independent Associates and guests at its Asia MannaFest event on June 15, 2013 in Seoul, South Korea. This year’s event marked the first time the company hosted an Asia-specific convention. The celebration far exceeded previous attendance at similar events in the past. Attendees from Korea, Japan, Taiwan and Australia were represented at the convention.
Asia MannaFest was a celebration of the story of Mannatech and the Independent Associates who have experienced significant improvements in their lives due to the benefits of the Mannatech products and its leverage-based income model. Featured presentations focused on Mannatech’s core nutritional innovations in the areas of glyconutrients and Real Food Technology solutions, as well as the revolutionary social entrepreneurial vision the company was built on, and its Mission 5 Million message. Many Associates who achieved leadership ranks from all over the region were also recognized from stage for their achievements over the past year.
Guests also experienced a highly entertaining event, highlighted by an appearance and performance by Korean pop star In-Soni, along with a performance of traditional Korean drums. Several lucky Mannatech Associates also won a drawing for a luxury bag of Louis Vuitton products. Korean pop star Bobby Kim surprised more than 130 top Presidential Directors at the Presidential Dinner held at the prestigious Aston House – Sheraton Walker Hill.
“The growth and excitement we’re seeing in our Asian markets are truly breathtaking,” said Mannatech CEO and Chief Science Officer, Dr. Robert Sinnott. “I was able to experience this firsthand at Asia MannaFest. You can see it in everyone’s eyes in the audience – the hope and passion that are driving all of this success. Momentum is a critical component in our industry. Our Asian markets are at the forefront of a global momentum shift that Mannatech has been experiencing over the past 18 months. My deepest appreciation and respect go out to our General Manager of South Korea and Taiwan, Patrick Park, for his crucial role in making it all come together.”
