Expo West is THE best convention to attend if you are connected to the organic and natural food industry. They call it the Super Bowl of natural food shows. Every year, the show grows larger! That is crazy to even imagine because the show already takes over the vicinity of the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim Marriott, Hilton Anaheim, and the Anaheim Arena. So in other words, Expo West takes over half of the city of Anaheim, California. But, that is great news because that means that the industry is growing. This year, I found so many amazing new products at the show!
Expo West 2017 has been the best Expo I have ever attended. This was my 4th year attending and it was amazing. There were about 85,000 attendees this year. Saying the show was huge is an understatement. This year there were booths in the Hilton, the Marriott, 3 floors of the Anaheim Convention Center, and the Anaheim Arena. I normally can do the show in 2 days but this year I attended all 3 days. There were so many new organic and natural products that I can’t wait to share with all of you. It is an exciting time for the natural and organic industry. Just by the growing amount of booths and attendees, the organic and natural industry is growing tremendously!
Just a reminder for those of you who are unfamiliar, the Natural Products Expo is where companies from all sectors of the organic/natural industry demo their products for distributors, food brokers, retailers, consultants, health professionals, press members, and bloggers. It is THE show to attend if you have a natural and organic product that you want to demo or if you are on the other side and are looking for products or suppliers.
I just got back from the Natural Products Expo West that was held in Anaheim, California. It took place last weekend at the Anaheim Convention Center. This was my third time attending the convention and I had so much fun. Even within the 3 times that I have attended, the show has grown so much. The Natural Products Expo is where companies from all sectors of the organic/natural industry demo their products for distributors, food brokers, retailers, consultants, health professionals, press members, and bloggers. It is so great coming back each year and connecting with organic companies and keeping informed about the industry. With how huge the show was, it just goes to show you how much the organic industry has grown with no signs of slowing down. The best part about attending the show is surrounding myself with like-minded people and professionals who share the same passion as I do. Also, getting to try all the new organic products is always a treat. Expo West never disappoints!
Here are some pictures of the products and booths from the show.
