Watsons is making waves in the health and wellness scene with the first and largest health expo in the Philippines — the Watsons Health and Wellness Expo 2024, happening at SM Megamall Megatrade Halls 1-3 from February 1-4, 2024. With over 52 brand booths and interactive activities, this event showcases the extensive range of health and beauty products available at Watsons while empowering the community to kickstart their wellness journey.
I’m a huge fan of expos as it brings together things that I’m interested in, but not all are fun and consumer-friendly. Happy to share though that after visiting this health and wellness expo, I felt like I have to come back again this weekend for a second run of purchases! Let me summarize my experience through five reasons why you shouldn’t miss the Watsons Health and Wellness Expo 2024:
1. Free Health Consultations, Tests, and Pharmacy Services
Because it’s all about proactive health management, the event highlights free consultations and tests. Don’t miss the Blood Health Check and Nerve Health Check areas where you can get insights and recommendations from onsite doctors based on your test results. While it’s not as comprehensive as laboratory tests, it’s the first step to determine whether you need to get a full check-up.
If you need more over-the-counter medicine, head over to the Watsons Click & Collect Express booth for pharmacy services. A staff will also be there to assist you every step!
2. Freebies from Well-Known Brands
If you’re like me who prefers trying something in small sizes before fully committing to full-sized bottles, then this event is really for you. Upon entering, you’ll be receiving a mini “event passport”, which you’ll have to complete in order to join the raffle. Upon visiting the brands identified in the sheet, you’ll be receiving sample-sized products in an instant! For others, you’ll have to join their booth activity (claw machine, photo booth, games, etc.) before receiving a prize. All the effort would be worth it, though! My favorite would be the Watsons Club Booth where you’ll have to catch as many prizes as you can in order to gain Watsons points or other freebies like face masks.
3. Discounts Up to 70% Off
A lot of items are also on sale at the expo! Deals from renowned brands like Watsons Generics, Watsons Brands, Unilab, Belo, Goli, P&G, Cetaphil, Sanofi, QuickFX, Mead Johnson, Salonpas, Difflam, Centrum Kids, Pharmaton, Lipton, Emco, Skinny Mamas, Sofy, and more are up for grabs. Enjoy discounts of up to 70% off across all halls, making it the perfect weekend opportunity to stock up on your favorite health and wellness essentials.
4. Free Physical Activities and Wellness Sessions
Add this to your weekend schedule and get moving with a lineup of physical activities that will be accessible to everyone, free of charge! Join fitness sessions led by experts and influencers, including dance fitness, strength training, outdoor sports, and more. This includes Get fit with Holifit by Jo Villablanca, Dance Fitness with Coaches Roco and Martin, Starting your Fitness journey with Pinoy Fitness, Find your Flow by Rope Flow PH, Strength and Movement for Women by Wandergym, Running 101 with WeKenRun, Getting into Outdoor Sports by PhilTRA, Spartan Challenge by Spartan Ravens, and Jumping for Fitness with Jump Manila.
5. Surprise Celebrity Appearances
Keep an eye out for celebrity guests and brand ambassadors sharing their health and wellness journeys. Celebrity guests like Anne Curtis, Jessy Mendiola, Kristine Hermosa, Kuya Kim, Francine Diaz, Gabby Concepcion, and other brand ambassadors will be there to share their health and wellness journeys, while health experts from top brands and medical associations are set to talk about health topics all throughout the 4-day event.
