Coppell, Texas, March 18, 2009 – Mannatech, Incorporated (NASDAQ - MTEX), a leading developer and provider of proprietary dietary supplements, weight management products and skin care solutions, held MannaFest 2009 its 15th annual global convention this past weekend in Dallas, which was broadcast live online and accessed by more than 20,000 independent sales Associates around the world.

Opening night, Dallas City Council member Carolyn R. Davis, District 7, presented a proclamation thanking Mannatech for creating jobs and income opportunities for people in Dallas and around the world. Additionally, proclamations from U.S. Congressman Kenny E. Marchant and Texas State Representatives Senfronia Thompson and Jim Jackson stated that Mannatech is an organization of integrity, purpose and principle and wished Mannatech and its hundreds of thousands of Associates the best as they fulfill the need of wellness globally.

“The support of these members of the United States Congress and the Texas House of Representatives is an honor,” said Wayne Badovinus, president and CEO of Mannatech. “MannaFest 2009 was a time for our Associates to participate in training and leadership activities and, with these honors as well as notable speakers like John Maxwell, Gary Coxe and Nancy Lieberman, and new product launches like the OsoLean Single-Use Packets, our Associates are poised to develop and grow their businesses.”
