WellFest Tops Our List

Bob Lipp and the WellFest team believe that Delray Beach can become internationally renowned for health and wellness.
Who are we to disagree? Plus, in the interest of full disclosure I own a small piece of the festival, but the reason we find Lipp’s vision so compelling is that he is tapping into a serious trend that Delray Beach is well positioned to capture: the desire of people to live, full, healthy and productive lives.
WellFest will be at Delray Center for the Performing Arts all weekend with top notch speakers at the nearby Hyatt Place.
Do yourself a favor and visit the expo where you will be able to sample great good and talk to top notch practitioners.
