HelloWellness hosts monthly events fostering in-person connections among like-minded individuals in the health & wellness space.  Our mission is to connect you with new friends with similar interests while introducing you to your favorite influencers and discovering the best brands in the space!


What is the Cancellation Policy?

We will provide a full refund up to 24 hours in advance of the event.  Within 24 hours, we can credit your account, which you can use for a future event.

I don’t know anyone, can I come alone?

Yes, absolutely!! We hope you are never deterred by not having a friend to accompany you. The purpose of these events is to meet like-minded people, and we will kick off every event with a mini icebreakers game to ensure you know at least one friendly face in the crowd.

What time will the event actually start?

We will open the doors promptly at the time the event is called for.  If arriving early- we appreciate punctuality- but may ask you to hang tight while we finish setting up the beautiful space!

I’m held up with another obligation and running late, is that ok?

Yes, feel free to come at any time, and we will ensure there is still a swag bag for you.  If you’re running late, we cannot guarantee that all of the on-site brands will have samples and food left, however.  People get hungry, what can we say!

What’s in the swag bag?

Telling you would ruin the surprise! But we like to vary it every time and ensure that you’re getting access to the best products in the wellness space, helping you discover new brands, we think you’ll love!

I have an allergy, can I be accommodated?

We always make an effort to accommodate as many allergies as possible, and list all allergies that are “safe” in the food at the event, however, if you’re concerned feel free to email us at
