If you’re in the health food industry, or any other related trade, then you’ve probably heard of Natural Products Expo West (for those who aren’t, just think Comic-Con for the organically aware). Well, this year’s Expo West is now just about a month away, and already the schedule is promising attendees a great experience. There are over three floors of exhibitor space filled to capacity, as well as several days of informative sessions to boot. This is basically the largest Natural Food Expo of its kind on the West Coast, showcasing the best that the industry has to offer, and the newest offerings that they will soon bring to market.
However, after a hard day of attending information sessions, and sampling delicious food samples, what could possibly be left? Well, the open area outside the Anaheim convention center will be converted to an outdoor concert stage, where Expo attendees can party with others, who like them are lucky enough to be sporting that conference badge.
Over the last couple of weeks the conference schedule has been updated to include who the entertainers will be each night of the Expo. Thursday, March 10 will have Eufórquestra headlining starting at 6:00 pm. Soul Rebels will be on the stage Friday night, with The Revivalists performing on Saturday.
The crowds wouldn’t come year after year if it wasn’t worth it. So, if last year’s Expo was anything to go by, this year’s gathering will be one not to be missed. Check out the show’s website for more details regarding registration requirements. Registration onsite is possible, but based on the attendance size, preregistration is highly recommended. One added bonus that the expo does offer up (beyond all that free food that is) would be that they arrange for free parking. You park for free at Angel Stadium, and they have free shuttles that take you back and forth to the Anaheim convention center. If you’re looking to spend the weekend nearby, then check out the site for hotel accommodations, but based on proximity alone, it’s worth looking into room availability at either the Hilton or Marriot, as both are right next to the Convention Center.
