Plan your brand's Expo strategy

Consider these questions as you and your staff prepare for a productive Natural Products Expo East: 

  • Are you conducting pre-show outreach via Natural Products Expo Virtual or LinkedIn? 

  • Do your booth and marketing collateral effectively call out your company's differentiators? 

  • Is trash talking competitors part of your strategy (psst, it shouldn't be!)? 

  • Have you planned out your on-site schedule, allowing time for serendipitous moments? 

  • Have you learned from past Expo mistakes? 

  • What is your follow-up communication plan? 

  • Do the people staffing your booth know all your company details? 

  • Can you quantify your company's positive impact? 

  • Are you prepared to be fully transparent about sourcing, manufacturing processes and more?
