Natural Products Expo West returns live to Anaheim, California on March 8-12, 2022 after a pandemic pause.
Highlights of Expo West 2022 include Climate Day, the annual State of Natural & Organic session, Pitch Slam, Fresh Ideas Organic Marketplace, a JEDI Community Happy Hour, and Evenings on the Plaza with live music.
“New Hope is excited to bring back the unique magic of Expo West so that it can be a catalyst to bring more health, joy and justice to all people, while also regenerating the planet,” said Carlotta Mast, Senior Vice President and Market Leader at Informa Markets’ New Hope Network.
International Probiotics Association wouldn’t miss it. Always a favorite with the probiotic community (warm sunshine!), this year’s expo promises all the excitement of discovery and connection as offered in the past. IPA Executive Director George Paraskevakos will be attending long-postponed meetings, connecting with IPA member companies, and exploring the many new offerings in the probiotic space.
Industry members who are unable to attend in-person this year will have access to the new Natural Products Expo Virtual Community. Virtual events began February 16 with the Natural Products Expo Kickoff and include a trend session with SPINS, the live announcement of NEXTY Award winners, and more virtual extensions of the in-person Expo West event.
Masks will be required while indoors at the Anaheim Convention Center and all surrounding hotels and venues, and KN95 masks will be available on-site. In addition, proof of vaccination or a negative covid test will be required of all event participants. New Hope Network continues to adhere to and support local and CDC guidelines and is working closely with the Orange County health agency to outline policies with support from local authorities.
