Natural Products Expo West Trade Show

Starting today, Natural Products Expo West, a huge trade show going on in Anaheim, Calif., will bring together more than 2,000 vendors, companies, and services under one convention center roof. With educational courses and seminars about the natural and organic products industry, professional networking opportunities, parties, and concerts (Spearhead and the Neville Brothers will play) this is one expo we’re happy to hear that people are schmoozing at. Though the show is not open to the public, those working in the natural products industry may attend. Organic and natural foods, including beer and wine tastings; tons of beauty products; home wares and textiles; and even pet products will be on display, so don’t be surprised if your favorite vendor suddenly has an influx of rad new stuff soon. Even if you can’t attend, the expo’sWeb site is an awesome resource for vendors and ideas, divided into the categories listed above (and more). Runs through March 20. Can't make it? Expo East takes place next September. ::Natural Products Expo West [by MO]
