Announcing 1st Annual Ascent Expo, Biggest Entertainment and Philanthropy Event of 2015

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 7, 2015) - The Ascent Expo, taking place February 27-March 1, 2015, at the Los Angeles Convention Center, is scheduled to be the largest gathering of its kind in the New Year, projects Henning Morales, CEO of the Expo. Combining cultural creativity, conscious capitalism, philanthropy, entertainment and commerce, Ascent Expo's primary goal is to help bring business people together to collectively affect future trends in areas such as environmentalism, health and self-actualization. Ascent Expo expects to attract between 20,000 and 30,000 guests interested in innovation, personal empowerment, Health& Wellness, fashion, music, and more.

Michael Bernard Beckwith, one of the original cultural creatives of our time, will make a keynote speech. Beckwith is an American New Thought spiritual leader, author, and founder of the Agape International Spiritual Center in Culver City, California, with a local following estimated in excess of 8,000 members.

Among the many sponsors of Ascent Expo are HEMP, Inc., (OTCBB: HEMP), whose CEO, Bruce Perlowin, another cultural creative, said, "Our focus is on industrial hemp and the myriad of uses, with over 25,000 products made from hemp, each one helping to drive a new clean, green American Agricultural, Medical and Industrial Revolution. We emphasize the principles of positive psychology and applying these principles into everyday lives and activities, with a wide range of premium products and services. We anticipate many new innovative products and successful joint ventures from the Expo."

Also sponsoring the Ascent Expo is Flaunt Magazine, a high-end monthly American fashion culture magazine published 10 times a year and distributed in over 32 countries. The publication was recently named one of three finalists, chosen out of 2,800 entries, for a prestigious FOLIO: Eddie& Ozzie Awards in the categories of Best Full Issue of a General Interest Magazine and Best Single Article in a Consumer Entertainment Magazine. The magazine also received three awards from PRINT for Excellence in Design, as well as a medal for editorial design from the Art Director's Club.

Fame & Philanthropy will produce a gala at the expo to launch Ascent's opening night. The goal of the gala is to bring star power, awareness, and entertainment to the Ascent Expo. Last year's Fame & Philanthropy event featured keynote speaker James Cameron, and was attended by Halle Berry, Charlize Theron, NE-YO, Tyrese Gibson, Sean Penn, Gene Simmons and many others. The inaugural Fame & Philanthropy event was held at the Vineyard in Beverly Hills on the evening of the Academy Awards. Fame & Philanthropy's mission is to support philanthropic, humanitarian, and educational efforts worldwide.

Ascent Expo anticipates hosting over 400 exhibitors, covering more than 140,000 net square feet of exhibit space, with a 40-ft red carpet for interviews. The center stage for A-list musical talent is expected to draw in thousands alone.
