Natural Products Expos East and West garner top trade show awards

Both shows make list of leading U.S. trade shows, Expo West named greenest show

New Hope Natural Media, producers of the leading natural products trade shows in the U.S. and abroad, has recently been awarded national honors for its industry gatherings Natural Products Expo West and Natural Products Expo East .

Trade Show Executive named both shows in its 2nd Annual "Gold 100" list of top U.S. trade shows, and the publication chose Natural Products Expo West as "The Leader in Green Initiatives" for the second year running. Trade Show Executive selected Natural Products Expo West based on the dozens of eco-friendly practices put in place at the Anaheim, Calif., event, including: providing an energy offset program for the venue and travel; creating a donation/contribution plan for local and national charities and nonprofit organizations; providing a paperless press room; and creating environmentally friendly booth packages.

"These awards honor the values of our company: to lessen impact on the planet, support sustainability and grow the healthy products marketplace," said Penton's Alan Peterson, president, trade show and conference group.

Additionally, both shows were included in the annual Tradeshow Week listing of the top 200 shows produced in the U.S. in 2008, based on overall square footage. Natural Products Expo West climbed the ranks from No. 75 on the list in 2007 to No. 69 in 2008, and Natural Products Expo East jumped from 159 to 116.

The upcoming Natural Products Expo West will be held March 11-14, 2010, at the Anaheim Convention Center in California. The 2009 event, held in March, occupied nearly 330,000 square feet and featured more than 1,900 exhibiting companies from 28 countries.
