Make the most of Expo online

For the first time, Natural Products Expo West will not produce a paper Buyers’ Guide, and will print only a show-floor map. This change will save 7 million sheets of paper. In addition to the map, the following online and mobile resources will help attendees navigate the floor and events at Expo West.

NFM Show Daily
The NFM editors will be scouring all the events, education, tours, parties and, of course, the show floor, to bring you as-it-happens news. Keep an eye on for videos, photos, podcasts and articles of everything Expo. An e-newsletter will also go out each night of the show to keep you in the loop and prepared for the following day, go to to subscribe.

Personal Expo plan
Use the Online Buyers’ Guide and Show Directory at before you get to Anaheim to set up a schedule of the exhibitors you want to visit, education sessions you want to attend and parties you don’t want to miss.

Full exhibitor list
With Expo West's full exhibitor list, search alphabetical listings for an exhibitor’s booth number, a bio of the company and contact information, using either the Online Buyers’ Guide and Show Directory or the listings in the March issue of NFM.
An enhanced version of the Online Buyers’ Guide and Show Directory is now available for smart phones. ChirpE manages your personal Expo plan, helps you find exhibitor listings, education sessions, show specials and new products, and gives you a highlighted map of vendor locations. Find it at
