SEOUL, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 22, 2015-- Mannatech, Incorporated (NASDAQ: MTEX), the founder of the M5M (Mission 5 Million) Foundation, the pioneer of nutritional glycobiology and the global innovator of naturally sourced supplements based on Real Food Technology® solutions, is expecting more than 10,000 attendees at its annual Asia MannaFest℠ event at Jamsil Olympic Park on October 31. As Mannatech’s largest global event, thousands will gather to share their boundless enthusiasm for the wellness and entrepreneurial opportunities the company offers throughout Asia.

Mannatech’s growing presence in Asia will be on full display as the event brings together Mannatech independent sales Associates and leaders from numerous countries and cities, including Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore and South Africa. The sales Associates will share recognition, acknowledge business builders and celebrate a year’s worth of success. Asia is leading Mannatech’s global expansion as the region’s increasingly prosperous population makes health, wellness, nutrition and fitness a priority.

“Asia MannaFest will be a life-changing event for many of the thousands who attend,” said Mannatech CEO and President Al Bala. “Our operations in Asia, specifically in Korea, are at the heart of Mannatech’s global success. Our teams in Asia continue to set a magnificent pace for innovation and professionalism for Mannatech and all other direct sales companies.”

Asia MannaFest will be hosted by Mannatech Korea and led by Patrick Park, Mannatech’s Regional President of Asia. Park has been instrumental in Mannatech’s rapid growth in the region, and will serve as the dynamic master of ceremonies at the Asia MannaFest event.

“We are extremely proud of the amazing effort our sales Associates demonstrate on a daily basis, and this event is just a small indication of the excitement Mannatech is generating in Asia,” said Park. “Asia MannaFest is an event unlike any other. It is proof that Mannatech is a force in this region because of its ability to attract thousands of independent sales Associates, who represent hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers whose lives have been impacted by Mannatech’s products.”

As an extra highlight, Mannatech will be launching its new product, Cognitate™, exclusively in Korea at Asia MannaFest. Cognitate is a brain health supplement designed to help improve cognitive ability.
