Advertising in the Health and Wellness Industry

  • Hawke's Bay Business Hub 36 Bridge Street Napier, Hawke's Bay, 4110 New Zealand (map)
Health and Wellness Advertising Event, Napier

If you’re advertising a product or service in the health or wellness industry this event is for you!

The legislation and advertising codes make this a complex area and many advertisers find this challenging.

This session will cover:

  • Application of the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) Therapeutic & Health Advertising Code

  • Important definitions in this Code and how to apply them to your product or service and your advertisement content

  • Advertising to treat an illness (therapeutic benefit) versus advertising to support good health (health benefit)

  • Testimonials and customer reviews and when it’s problematic to include them in your advertising

  • Who is complaining to the ASA in this sector

This session will include a range of ad examples and recent complaints to explain how the ASA’s Therapeutic and Health Advertising Code is applied.
