(OJAI, CA) January 5, 2006 - The 2006 NNFA-West Healthy Harvest Show – “the regional trade show for the whole country” – will be held September 15-17, 2006, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. The announcement of the show dates and new location was jointly made by show producer TLC Tradeshow Productions of Ojai, CA, and NNFA-West, the Sacramento, CA-based regional association representing natural products industry members in California, Arizona, Nevada and Hawaii.
“We are excited about the move from San Jose to Santa Clara,” said Terri Curry-McSweeney, president of TLC Tradeshow Productions. “The Santa Clara Convention Center is a beautiful and modern facility that exhibitors and attendees will enjoy. The city of Santa Clara borders San Jose, so this new venue remains strategically located within the same key northern California and Bay Area marketplace, making it easy to reach by virtually any mode of transportation.”
The Hyatt Regency (formerly Westin) of Santa Clara, directly connected to the convention center, is the host hotel for this year’s NNFA-West Healthy Harvest Show.
Exhibitor booth reservations for the upcoming September show are now being accepted, with initial booth assignments commencing on February 1, 2006. The Fall West Coast show will feature approximately 200 exhibitor booths encompassing makers of natural and organic food products, dietary supplements, natural HBA products, sports nutrition, and other health food industry products.
“We urge all interested companies to reserve their booth space as soon as possible. Space is expected to sell-out for the show,” said Curry-McSweeney. “Our goal is to build upon the momentum from the 2005 NNFA-West Healthy Harvest Show, which was a tremendous success.”
Dot Boyd, executive director of the NNFA-West, noted the significance of supporting the Association through participation in the annual trade show. “The critical work of our regional Association is important for all members of the natural products community,” she said. “A portion of the show’s revenue supports such activities as lobbying at the state level and retailer education programs throughout our region. We encourage all natural and organic product manufacturers to support the NNFA-West by exhibiting at our 2006 Healthy Harvest Show.”
Curry-McSweeney added that the Great America Theme Park is next to the Santa Clara Convention Center, making the location ideal for attendees who want to bring their family to the show for a mini-vacation. The Santa Clara Convention Center is also adjacent to a championship golf course, while the surrounding area additionally features a number of attractions including local wineries, sightseeing, shopping and restaurants.
