PLANO, TX--(Marketwire - October 13, 2009) - Ralph Oats and Wellness International Network are preparing for their biggest and most anticipated event of year, Wellness International Network's 17th annual Anniversary Gala. This exciting four-day celebration of Wellness International Network's continual growth will welcome hundreds of its international distributors to the DFW area. During 2009, Wellness International Network has launched new product and packaging, hosted a Caribbean cruise for top performers and announced two luxury get-aways for distributors in 2010. According to the Plano Convention & Visitors Bureau, Wellness International Network recently saw a 25 percent increase of hotel rooms locally booked from last year. Also, Wellness International Network has experienced upward trends in traffic to company web sites, particularly to MyWINWebPage (MWWP), WIN's dynamic shopping cart.

Set for November 4-7, Wellness International Network's Anniversary Gala will include in-depth training meetings by WIN Founders Ralph Oats and Cathy Oats at its Corporate Headquarters and the Marriott at Legacy Town Center, both in Plano's prestigious Legacy Park. For the first time ever, Wellness International Network's glitzy Awards Ceremony will be held at the historic Majestic Theater in downtown Dallas, including a performance by two-time Comedian of the Year Adam Ace.

Many international distributors of Wellness International Network, an undisputed leader known for its top-selling weight management line, the BioLean® System, and highly concentrated omega-3 supplement WINOmeg3complex™, will be celebrating the 15-year anniversary of opening an affiliate office in the Netherlands, WIN Worldwide B.V. Also, Texas Unlimited Band will headline an exciting Lone Star Lounge Party, following training sessions on Thursday night. Local, popular party band, InsideOut, will complete the exciting week as they headline the Gala Finale Celebration on Saturday night.
