Brisbane Conference and Exhibition Centre
Come and join us at Australia’s first Sleep Health & Wellbeing Expo 9th October 2021 and find out how you can find the right balance so that you live your best life!
In order to maintain a well-balanced, healthy lifestyle it’s important to give the same level of care and attention to 4 elements, known as “Pillars of Health”;
These four pillars are our foundation for good health. If one or more of these pillars are not in place it will have a negative impact on the others. This is particularly the case with sleep.
Having a good night’s sleep is important for brain function, muscle repair, and metabolism. So, even if you exercise daily and maintain a balanced diet, if your sleep is poor you may struggle to achieve your desired results. Likewise, if your mindset, diet, and exercise is compromised this can have a negative impact on the quality of your sleep. This can set off a vicious cycle that can be hard to get out of.
The Sleep Health & Wellbeing Expo is a FREE industry-leading event providing an unparalleled opportunity for people to discover and connect with community services, businesses, and organisations within the sleep, and allied health care and lifestyle industries. Our event is not just an expo, it will also feature a diverse and comprehensive speaker program developed by qualified sleep and allied health care professionals.
Sleep is often overlooked as being important to our health. However, research shows that without adequate sleep our health, resilience and performance is greatly impacted. Our goal is to shine a light on the importance of good sleep health and to show how a holistic approach, incorporating all 4 pillars of health is essential to overall wellbeing.

Deficits in the quantity or quality of sleep are increasingly being linked to other health problems. So too are the effects of prolonged bed rest due to excessive sleep. As well as feeling wretched, people suffering sleep deprivation have poor concentration, a higher incidence of workplace and road accidents, and have increased risks of high blood pressure, depression, stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.
