From surprise guests to the flower gardens of Furano and fantastic food, our Asia Pacific Associates celebrated their business brilliance in Hokkaido, Japan, in real style!
Our top 25 were treated to an all-expenses paid trip over six exciting days.
Taking in the scenic splendour of Sapporo, the group stayed at the famous JR Tower Hotel Nikko. And, over five nights, our super, high-achieving Associates were treated to exciting shopping excursions, terrific tours and superb local cuisine. The fabulous food was a major highlight – and with fresh sashimi, sushi and seafood on the menu, it’s easy to see why!

Accomplished Australian Associates, De-Rong and John and Lisa, cited the rows of rainbow coloured blooms and scenic sights of the blossoming flower gardens of Furano plus the breathtaking Tomita Farm as some of their favourite highlights from their Hokkaido trip. Big smiles!
The Asia-Pacific group photo promised to be a big memory for many – and it certainly was! Having donned their Otaru outfits and sporting wide smiles while they waited at the scenic waterway, USANA CEO Dave Wentz surprised the group as he sailed down the charming canal. He was welcomed with much waving and cheering. Our USANA President of China and Greater Asia, Deborah Woo, was also welcomed warmly!

The group enjoyed a gondola ride onto Jewel’s Restaurant and enjoyed the beautiful 100 year old gardens surrounding ELM Garden Restaurant for the Gala Dinner. The warm weather and picturesque views plus the minute attention to detail at every gathering were big plus points and much appreciated by our Associates over the whole event.
Wrapping up this fantastic five days, our very own Vice President of the Pacific Region, David Mulham, paid tribute to the powerful and inspirational leaders who’ve experienced yet another year of record growth. ‘It’s only up from here for these top 25 and all of our wonderful Associates,’ affirmed a delighted David.
