Natural Products Expo West/Supply Expo 2010 was bigger and better than ever. The event covered two entire floors of the Convention Center with 7 different categories: Food, Organic Products, Heath & Beauty, Miscellaneous Hot Ticket Items, Supplements, Natural Living & Pet Products, and a very popular Supply Expo.
Natural Products Expo West/SupplyExpo celebrated its 30th anniversary, March 11-14, 2010, at the Anaheim Convention Center in Calif. This massive event drew nearly 56,000 from across the industry, which united entrepreneurs and established natural products alumni who indicated a healthy market outlook for growth.
The total Nutrition industry sales tallied up to approximately $110 billion in the U.S. in 2009 up $10 billion from 2008, according to Nutrition Business Journal. “While the economy recovers, the natural and organic industry continues to grow. 2010 metrics including attendance and hundreds of new product introductions at Expo West are proof positive of the strategic value surrounding in-person business events,” said Adam Andersen, show manager for Natural Products Expo West.
