LAS VEGAS, Aug. 30, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EQ Labs, Inc.

Mr. Owens and Ms. Rousso announced a major promotion for Labor Day Weekend at the Convention Center location of Walgreens in Las Vegas for EQ Lab's "Smart Energy Drink."

Last week, EQ Labs CEO Maurice  Owens was featured on "The Morning Blend" show talking about the virtues of EQ Energy drink while also displaying the company's complete product line.

Mr. Owens commented, "Since I appeared on The Morning Blend show last, we have seen our sales accelerate throughout the Las Vegas region. Several retail locations have completely sold out of our product and we have received orders for more product. As Vanessa said on 'The Morning Blend' show, she is now using EQ at the poker tournaments that she appears in and it helps her to be on her game. We will be announcing more celebrity spokespeople in the near future."
