Expo West is the world’s largest trade show focusing on natural, organic, and health products. Some of my favorite brands such as Kleen Kanteen, 100% Pure, New Chapter, LunchBots, Renew Life, Juvo, Organic Essence, and many more food, beverage, cosmetics, and supplements companies will be there this year. Rather than having a booth for Holistic Living with Rachel Avalon, I’ll be zig-zagging through the venue to meet up with professionals, clients, and friends.
With over 3,000 exhibits and approximately 56,000 professionals and attendees, an expo this massive can be overwhelming. So, to simplify and enhance your experience and networking, check out the free Expo West App. The App features the exhibitor list, a complete schedule of events, and an interactive floor plan. You can even create an Expo Plan.
When: March 10th-13th, 2011
Where: Anaheim Convention Center
The Big Deal: Expo West taps into top LOHAS issues, trends, and brands. You can compare emerging and established brands as well as their products to find out who’s offering the healthiest, most sustainable options.
NOTE: A lot of companies claim to be the healthiest or the best. Another time-saver besides the App is to look for products that are certified organic, minimally processed, minimally packaged (or better yet, packaged with sustainable materials), local or fair-trade, and vegan. When you keep those priorities in mind you can have more fun, help reduce waste, and strengthen companies who are deeply committed to health, sustainability, and more compassionate commerce.
