Boost Your Lifestyle At Premier Expo

GERALD SHINTAKU, director of events with Star Events, a division of O‘ahu Publications Inc.

The second annual Young At Heart Expo will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Dec. 3-4 at a new venue, Hawai‘i Convention Center (located at 1801 Kalākaua Ave.). This event highlights the very best from Hawai‘i and beyond. Businesses will have the opportunity to promote the latest in health, financial and lifestyle products, and services.

This free, fun event promises to bring an educational, entertaining weekend to promote the health and well-being of our community with emphasis on the positive aspects of aging. It is an all-inclusive resource, bringing together many available services that are dedicated to serving our kūpuna.

Young At Heart Expo is open to the general public with ample parking available at the convention center. Working with the center’s management to ensure this event complies with the latest COVID-19 requirements, all attendees must be vaccinated and arrive with proof of vaccination and a photo ID. Guest temperatures will be checked prior to entry, and don’t forget to wear a mask.
