Northern Lights Update

It’s Official! The UK Grand Opening YOUNG LIVING CELEBRATED the opening of its United Kingdom market with a spectacular September event at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in the heart of London. More than 800 attendees, many of whom took the opportunity to visit the European Headquarters on the Friday prior to the event, enjoyed two days of informative on-stage presentations and specialised workshops given by Young Living leaders. The extensive product expo showcasing new additions to the European product range as well as offering a sneak peek at the 2014 seasonal products proved to be a huge hit. The NingXia Red and Slique Bars were also highly frequented by those looking for an afternoon pick-me-up or a warming cup of tea. This fabulous day was rounded off with a contagiously energetic performance by the famous tribute act “The Beatles for Sale.” During the two-day event, everybody had the opportunity to choose from several exciting and informative workshops with topics ranging from social media and business building to Raindrop Technique and the energy of essential oils. The event attracted people from all over the world—from several different European countries to the USA, Canada, and Singapore. GO UK was a great success and really showed that Young Living is an international family, with essential oils being a sought-after gift of nature all around the world. This is what John Doughty, general manager and managing director for Young Living Europe, had to say about this fantastic event and the future of Young Living in the UK and Europe: “I believe strongly in Gary’s vision of bringing the oils into every home in the world. Young Living simply offers the best oils and oil-infused products in the world, and we are proud to be able to excite people across the UK and Europe, motivating them to live a healthy, fulfilling lifestyle. We constantly expand our product offering and encourage growth with exciting events, and now we are enjoying seeing more and more lives being enhanced by Young Living’s incredible gifts of nature.”

JAPAN IS AN island nation located in the Pacific Ocean. The characters that make up Japan’s name mean “sun-origin,” which is why Japan is often referred to as the “Land of the Rising Sun.” Japan is the 2nd-largest direct-sales market in the world, grossing more than $22 billion each year, with a population of over 127 million.  The Young Living Japan office is on the 32nd floor of a 52-story skyscraper in the middle of Tokyo’s business district and right next door to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government office building. In the entrance hall of the showroom is a huge lavender wall (8 feet x 43 feet) used as a symbol of Young Living Japan that welcomes visitors. More than 7,000 bundles of real lavender were imported from the Young Living Lavender Farm in France to create the wonderful wall.  Additionally, the showroom has three meeting rooms, named Rose, Lavender, and Melissa. Japanese members love the showroom and invite their guests and friends over for meetings and trainings. If you have an opportunity to visit Tokyo, please come by our magnificent showroom! We are looking forward to meeting you soon in Tokyo!
