LOHAS 12 Forum, June 18-21, New Location, But Same Dedication To Advancing LOHAS Business Practices

BROOMFIELD, CO – March 11, 2008 – For more than a decade, the LOHAS Forum has served as the global gathering of the premier businesses, thought leaders, market researchers, media executives and opinion makers seeking to participate in the $209 billion LOHAS market. The focus on eco-friendly and sustainable business practices is becoming more the norm, which makes the need for communication and networking resources more vital than ever. As the leader in keeping the green world connected with the conscious consumer market, LOHAS continues to remain ahead of demand. The recent overhaul of the LOHAS website, www.lohas.com, and the programs, speakers and attendees expected at this year's LOHAS 12 Forum will combine to provide the information and connectivity necessary to succeed in the continual greening and sustainability of today’s business and consumer landscape.

LOHAS.com Gets Greener

The centerpiece of the LOHAS community, www.lohas.com has been restyled and reorganized to more effectively serve the needs of LOHAS-minded businesses and individuals. The LOHAS website is the premier destination for information gathering and networking in the green world. A tremendous resource for those doing research on LOHAS trends, practices, businesses and products, LOHAS.com is divided into five distinct areas:

  • "LOHAS Resources" - Located on the left column of the home page, this area offers links to:

    - Calendar of Events, both LOHAS-related and individual business events

    - Job Links, employment opportunities for LOHAS individuals

    - Product Reviews, the latest and greatest products endorsed by LOHAS

  • "LOHAS Forum" - This area provides information on the upcoming LOHAS 12 Forum, including registration, speaking opportunities, sponsorship and press releases. Here, you can also find a list of topics and areas of interest that will be addressed at the upcoming Forum.

  • "LOHAS Journal" - The LOHAS Journal is a groundbreaking business magazine, and the first and only comprehensive guide to all things LOHAS and is the authoritative resource for research, trends and opportunities.

  • "LOHAS News" - Updated on a weekly basis, this section features the latest business, lifestyle and industry news, as well as a highly informative and entertaining Blog, written by LOHAS director, Ted Ning. Over 10,000 articles are archived for those researching the LOHAS marketplace and trends in sustainability.

  • "Business Directory" - Offering information and links to over 17,000 LOHAS-focused businesses, this area is a essentially the LOHAS Yellow Pages

    "LOHAS.com is the thread that connects the ever-growing eco-conscious community," says Ted Ning, LOHAS director. "It brings all the pieces together in a platform where both businesses and individuals can gain a greater understanding of how they can work, relate, prosper and contribute to a healthier, more sustainable planet."

    LOHAS 12 Forum Returns To Its Roots

    The $209 billion LOHAS marketplace will be put under the microscope once again at the LOHAS 12 Forum. This year's LOHAS 12 Forum will take place from June 18-21 at the St. Julien Hotel & Spa in Boulder, CO. The birthplace of the LOHAS movement, Colorado is home to several LOHAS pioneering companies, such as Gaiam, Wild Oats Markets, Celestial Seasonings, White Wave, Pangea Organics, and Sounds True.

    The LOHAS 12 Forum is the leadership gathering center of the healthy living and sustainable universe. Business owners and industry leaders from around the world meet to discuss industry trends, share ideas and learn how to run a successful LOHAS business, as well as interact and learn from businesses steeped in LOHAS practices. It is the only event that brings leaders from all of the different LOHAS segments together for high-end strategic dialogues.

    LOHAS 12 will showcase to businesses and individuals that sustainability is a requirement, rather than a choice, further promoting the LOHAS lifestyle beneficial to the future of our planet. The LOHAS Forum celebrates those individuals and corporations who have found ways to make sustainability not only good for the planet, but also good for profitability. They've created entirely new business categories and services that enhance local and global economies. LOHAS 12 will applaud today's trailblazers, while also challenging all individuals and businesses to build upon what they offer now, envisioning a truly sustainable business climate – and planet - in the future.

    LOHAS 12 will feature the very latest information on the sustainability movement globally. The conference also will take the pulse of hundreds of business leaders and other individuals -- to reflect how much the effort has grown in the past decade and what they believe the landscape for a world featuring more healthy and environmentally friendly lifestyles will be like in the decades ahead.
