SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 30, 2017) - Youngevity International, Inc. (NASDAQ: YGYI), a leading omni-direct lifestyle company, recently commemorated their twentieth year anniversary at their annual convention entitled "Lead the Change". The event which began on August 17 and ended August 20 was held in Dallas, TX at the Hyatt Regency Reunion Conference Center.

In addition to celebrating this momentous milestone, this year's event featured new product launches and packaging, over 100 breakout sessions, and a brand-new Expo and Hub area that allowed attendees to interact with Brand Champions and learn about the vast assortment of Youngevity products. The open-concept space offered an immersive experience for distributors in the areas of shopping, networking, demos and product samples. The company created a photo share at http://photos.youngevity.com/ that allowed distributors to easily view and share branded Youngevity event photos. So far there have been 644,755 total views.

Keynote speakers included Connie Podesta, considered an expert in human behavior as it relates to sales, leadership, and personal development and author of seven books and New York Times best-selling author Shawn Achor. Mr. Achor authored "The Happiness Advantage" and is the Founder of GoodThinkInc and Co-Founder of the Institute for Applied Positive Research.

Steve Wallach, Chairman and CEO of Youngevity, stated, "This year's convention has been an extremely rewarding experience to not only Youngevity's management but also to the thousands of distributors in attendance. From my perspective these annual events illustrate that our core philosophy of betterment remains as our influence grows. I saw many who have been with us since early in our existence and yet I met so many from different areas of the world who have recently joined Youngevity and add to the enthusiasm associated with this company."

Dave Briskie, President and CFO of Youngevity, said, "This year's themes of Celebrate, Learn, and Connect resonated throughout the entire week. What was most encouraging to me was not only the fact that this year's attendance was double that of last years but that distributors from 10 different countries were in attendance, and this is virtually weeks since our Asian expansion has begun. Their response to coming on board with Youngevity was very evident throughout the week's activities and I look forward to more interacting with all of our US based and international distributors at future events."
