With experts anticipating that Asia will become the world's fastest growing herbal, nutraceutical and organic market in the next five years, attendees at the first Natural Products Expo Asia will have a unique opportunity to build important new relationships and conduct on-site business.
"Companies in Asia already provide many of the raw materials that go into natural products in the West, and there is huge spending power here," says David Murphy, Commercial Consul, US Consulate General of Hong Kong. "There is no doubt in my mind that companies participating at Natural Products Expo Asia 2002 will walk away with new business from this event."
Expo Asia will present the first large-scale international traditional Chinese medicine exhibition, making it possible for participants to view modern Western and traditional Asian products side by side.
