Live from Natural Products Expo West 2018: Disrupted Retail Summit

Video-Live from Natural Products Expo West 2018: Disrupted Retail Summit

Disrupt with us at 10:30 a.m. PST on March 8! To better understand changing consumer purchasing habits and opportunities at retail and online, we've enlisted the help of retail, distribution, and brand experts to share actionable insights and tactics to help inform individual channel strategies.

The retail and distribution landscape is changing extraordinarily fast, quickly exposing brands to new challenges and also many exciting new opportunities to get healthy products into the hands of consumers. 

Brands will leave this summit with a better understanding of how to successfully navigate a complex retail and distribution environment.
