Event Postponed

As a health-conscious event and the current situation around the world, we have made the decision to postpone the Better Living Exposition to later this year. Stay tuned for updates on this website or check out our Facebook page.

In today’s fast-moving world of random information coming at you from all directions, wouldn’t it be nice to have a safe, convenient and trusted source for information on food, diet, fitness, health and overall happiness? A one-stop place they explore and find answers that they know are out there but just haven’t discovered yet?

On February 26-27 the Iowa Better Living Exposition (BLE) will be held at the Iowa State Fairgrounds Varied Industries Building. The BLE provides a place to go for information that will help everyone get healthier and happier.

“Education is the most powerful weapon, which you can use to change the world.”

~ Nelson Mandela

what’s at the Better Living Exposition?

Experts will be on hand from many fields including:

diet and nutrition

Learn about various dietary approaches such as macrobiotic, vegetarian/vegan, raw, and others. Cooking and food prep demonstrations will take place throughout the weekend, including the opportunity to taste samples.

energy and sustainability

How can we reduce our carbon footprint while at the same time managing costs? Companies will be on site providing information on money saving programs and concepts you can benefit from right away.

alternative treatments

While Western medicine is effective at treating many conditions, other approaches may be worth considering. From essential oils and herbs, to acupuncture and energy work, there is a whole other world to know about.

health and health assessment

Check your vital signs like blood pressure and type, sight, hearing and more. Ask questions without having to schedule an appointment or fill out insurance forms.


The healthiest people understand the value of leisure and regeneration. Learn to find the kid inside you again as you talk to our experts at play and amusement.


No matter what drives you, life can be more fulfilling and purposeful when the mind, body and spirit are in harmony. Explore ways to live a more peaceful and fulfilling life.


Hungry to learn more about various modalities such as yoga, massage or health coaching? The BLE is the place to go to connect with people who have furthered their own training and to learn about educational opportunities for you.
