Expo will inspire, pamper and empower

The 2017 Indy Women’s Expo has put together a fabulous lineup of speakers, vendors and demonstrations designed to inspire, pamper and empower women. The Expo is the premier event for women in central Indiana and combines great speakers, shopping, health, beauty, home and fun.

The show takes place Saturday, February 11, and Sunday, February 12, at the Indiana State Fairgrounds from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. each day.

The first 500 attendees each day will receive a free copy of the Internationally Best Selling book “Oola: Find Balance in an Unbalanced World.” It is a light-hearted, fun, life-balance book that focuses on balance and growth in the seven key areas of life – fitness, family, faith, friends, field, finance and fun.

“We heard from attendees last year that they wanted even more interactivity,” said Circle City Expos Co-Owner Jason Swathwood. “This year, we’ve added more pampering services and additional sessions designed to give women hands-on learning and empowerment.”

“We’re also adding a ton of fun to the event with a daily fashion show for all ages at 3:30 p.m. presented by Caroline’s Boutique, Rusted Window and LuLaRoe,” said Circle City Expos Co-Owner Leslie Swathwood. “We’ll also have LuLaLand, a huge gathering of LuLaRoe retailers who will have ALL the latest styles available in one place.”
