United States - 07/18/2019 — Plexus Worldwide (Plexus®), a global, leading direct-selling health and wellness company focused on health and happiness, recently hosted its Plexus’ 2019 Rise Up Convention, held June 17-21 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Plexus’ annual convention was designed to inspire, educate, and energize Ambassadors through valuable training sessions, collaboration and keynotes that help participants grow financially and personally. The Rise Up theme was based on giving Ambassadors the tools, connections, and knowledge to grow their home-based businesses together and achieve business and professional goals along the way.
“Plexus has been such a success over the last 11 years due to the relationships and connections that Plexus Ambassadors have built with one another and their communities,” said Alec Clark, Founder and President of Plexus. “This year’s theme of ‘Rise Up’ is meant to honor our Ambassadors’ dedication as we look to achieving our future goals together as one of the world’s leading direct selling companies.”
Among the highlights of the Convention, Plexus announced a brand-new product available for purchase. Plexus Active™is a lifestyle performance mix that is formulated to provide clean, lasting energy, along with mental clarity, enhanced feelings of alertness, and support for improved performance. With a clean energy blend and none of the artificial ingredients found in other energy drinks and sodas, Active supports an active life and keeps you feeling powered up and ready to go, any time of day.*
It was announced that Plexus has helped provide 10 Million Meals** in the first year of its partnership with Feeding America® under the Plexus Charities and Nourish One® Program. For each serving of Plexus Lean™ sold, Plexus helps provide a meal to someone in need; this equals 14 meals for every unit of Lean sold. This achievement far exceeds the original first-year goal of donating 2.5 million meals and has emboldened Plexus to renew its commitment to Feeding America for a second year at the Mission Partner level. Feeding America Mission Partners are organizations whose aggregate contributions exceed $500,000 to 5 million pounds or more of donated food and grocery products, or a combination of the two. At the Mission Partner level, Plexus joins the ranks of other Feeding America partners like Del Monte, Omni Hotels & Resorts, Post, and PetSmart Charities, in helping to end food insecurity in the United States.
"We are proud to share this exciting news at the mark of our first anniversary with Feeding America," says Tarl Robinson, CEO, and Founder of Plexus. "By forging meaningful partnerships such as these, we can help people who face food insecurity and work with Feeding America to end hunger right here at home."
Finally, Plexus announced it will expand to Mexico in early 2020. The expansion marks the fourth global market for Plexus, which already has operations in the U.S., Canada and Australia. Plexus’ Mexico headquarters will be in Guadalajara where its warehouse and office space will be located. Local staff are also being hired to help grow Plexus’ presence and introduce the line of science-based health and wellness products and to assist those in Mexico who want to build their own home-based businesses focused on health and wellness.
“Our expansion into Mexico is the next natural step of Plexus’ global evolution,” said Christopher Pair, President, Operations and International at Plexus. “As one of our industry’s fastest growing companies, we look forward to future success as we provide greater opportunities to families and individuals who want to embrace a healthy and happy lifestyle.”
In addition to the new product and market announcements, Plexus’ 2019 Rise Up Convention inspired, educated, and energized Ambassadors through valuable training sessions, collaboration and keynotes to help attendees grow their home-based businesses. Ambassadors also heard from Plexus leaders and learned about the latest tools to help them connect with one another, share their experiences and grow their home businesses together.
