They’re coming by land and air. Plane, bus, and automobile. Thousands descending on Salt Lake City for the biggest party USANA party ever. The rush is on, and with good reason. USANA’s 20th International Convention is coming. It’s close, and it’s a big one.

Tomorrow the festivities start in earnest. But today and yesterday were all about arriving — and doing it in style.

For Team NEX, that means about 350 people rolling into the Salt Lake Valley packed into all manner of mechanical muscle. It was a sight to see. Cars — some fast, others faster — all running on gasoline with an extra tank of youth for boost.

They spilled out into the halls of the USANA Home Office clad in black T-shirts, brimming with excitement and energy. We even caught up with Mr. NEX himself, 2-Star Diamond Director Aaron Dinh.

That’s one way to do it. Some preferred to cruise at altitude. Like the 185 Associates who chartered a flight from Montreal to Salt Lake City. It was off the plane and onto three tour buses awaiting plane-side, ready to whisk them into downtown Salt Lake — into Convention Central.

The bus has the size advantage, but the limousine has all the flash. And more than a few jet-black limos cruised out of Salt Lake International with USANA VIPs hidden behind the dark tint.

No matter how you get there, we’re all going to the same place. The Salt Palace in downtown Salt Lake City turns into the center of the USANA world very soon. The basics of #USANA12 are arriving on pallets, being unpacked by USANA employees, and set up for tomorrow.

But it’s not really complete until all of you show up. It’s not much of a party without all the guests of honor, right?

An Exciting ERA
