New for 2010 - A greener Expo West

Our Commitment
Natural Products Expo West is committed to reducing our impact on the environment by purchasing energy from renewable sources, providing recycling bins, requiring our vendors to take steps towards using exhibiting materials from renewable or recycled materials and more. In an effort to further conserve resources, we will not be producing a printed Show Directory/Buyers’ Guide in 2010.

In 2010 we will not be producing a printed Buyers’ Guide for Natural Products Expo West/SupplyExpo
Keeping our carbon footprint top of mind, we have decided to take a bold step forward in 2010 and produce a Show Directory Map instead of a printed Buyers’ Guide. This change will save over 7 million sheets of paper and allows us to work with a local printer, reducing our environmental impact further by saving on both fuel, energy and other valuable resources.

Why are we producing a Show Directory Map instead of a Buyers’ Guide in 2010?
Our commitment to the environment and lessening our impact on the earth and its resources is top of mind in our decision to change from the Printed Buyers’ Guide to the much smaller yet still informative Show Directory Map. However, we would never make this change if we did not feel it would also improve your show experience. No longer do you have carry around a clunky Buyers’ Guide, instead you’ll have a light and handy Show Directory Map to help assist you in finding the most pertinent information on site.

Access event information in the following ways before, during and after the show:

  • Access all exhibiting company descriptions, contact information and product categories as well as an up-to-date schedule of all events and education online using the Online Buyers’ Guide and Show Directory available online now.

  3. 3. When you’re ready to go to the show, print out your schedule, and take it with you.
