Great Eastern is presenting sponsor for Health & You 2012

For the first time, Great Eastern will be the Presenting Sponsor for Singapore's largest health exhibition, Health & You, jointly organised by The Straits Times Mind Your Body and Lianhe Zaobao LOHAS.

To be held on August 4 and 5 at Suntec Singapore, the exhibition, with its theme of 'Stay Fit, Live Great!' is expected to attract more than 100,000 visitors over the weekend. Mr Gan Kim Yong, Minister for Health, will be the Guest-of-Honour at the opening ceremony.

Now in its eighth edition, Health & You has grown in scale each year and has become Singapore's largest health and wellness exhibition.

Mr Leslie Fong, Senior Executive Vice-President of SPH's Marketing Division, said: "I am happy to welcome Great Eastern as our new partner in this worthwhile endeavour. It is our privilege to work together with Great Eastern to help promote greater consciousness among Singaporeans of the need to stay fit and healthy - and to make that their lifelong commitment."

Dr Khoo Kah Siang, CEO (Singapore), Great Eastern, said: "We are delighted to be the presenting sponsor for Singapore's premier health and wellness event. At Great Eastern, we're no longer just a life insurance company, but a Life company. We have gone beyond the traditional role of an insurance company to actively help our customers live better, healthier and longer. We believe that while insurance is important, it can never replace what matters most to your family, which is you.

"To help our customers on their Live Great journey, we introduced our Live Great programme, the first integrated health and wellness programme of its kind comprising five components - wellness tools, health tips, mobile apps, workshops and events as well as exclusive privileges.

Health & You 2012 is an excellent platform for Great Eastern to promote health and wellness to not only our customers, but to all Singaporeans from all walks of life and of all ages. There will be something for everyone."

Health & You is an annual exhibition by The Straits Times Mind Your Body and Lianhe Zaobao LOHAS to engage health-conscious readers as well as their loved ones. Readers get the convenience of being at a single-venue health and wellness mega-marketplace with a wide range of information, products and services, and also get to experience healthy activities suitable for all ages.

Visitors will find three different sections at the exhibition:

a) Marketplace - a popular section showcasing health food and supplements, as well as health and wellness services
b) Kids Corner - another popular section with fun-filled activities for children
c) Presentation Rooms - visitors will get to attend various health-related talks and seminars in two different rooms. In view of the overwhelming response last year, the seating capacity of the two rooms have been increased from 50 to to 100 seats.

Visitors to the Great Eastern booth can look forward to an array of activities, including health checks using its Wellness Profiling tool and an Intention Wall where they can pledge their intentions for their loved ones.

The young can participate in art and soccer clinics while ladies can enjoy special rates and goodie bags when they sign up for the Great Eastern Women's Run to be held in November.

The more energetic can participate in the Shuffling Dance Contest and stand to win attractive prizes.

Another highlight will be the Live Great Health Journal Race where customers who patronise the booths of Great Eastern's Live Great partners will have their journal stamped and upon completion, receive a special gift.

At the exhibition, visitors can sign up for the Great Eastern Live Great card which they can use to enjoy privileges not only at the event but also for the next six months from 140 merchants at over 1,000 outlets in the region. They can also learn more about health insurance and health and wellness from leading professionals.
