Natural Products Expo East 2014, the East Coast’s largest natural, organic and healthy products event, is expecting more new exhibitors and more new products than ever before. The event will take place September 17-20, 2014 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Maryland and is open to trade only. Natural Products Expo East embraces the food and beverage, supplements, beauty, household and pet products categories. The event is produced by New Hope Natural Media, a division of Penton.
“Following a record-breaking event in California last month, Natural Products Expo East will showcase more new exhibitors and more new products than ever before. The Expo show floor is nearly sold out and reception to our conference program is tremendous. With the focus on healthier lifestyles we are looking forward to celebrating the natural, organic and healthy products industry this fall,” said Adam Andersen, show director for Natural Products Expos.
Event attendees will benefit from the talent and wisdom of the Natural Products Expo speakers. Doug Tompkins founder of The Foundation for Deep Ecology, will be the event's keynote speaker. In 1964, Tompkins founded The North Face to make and sell outdoor equipment and later co-founded Esprit clothing company. Tompkins is an American environmentalist, prominent landowner, conservationist and entrepreneur.
