Natural Products Expo West is always the talk of the town—even during the Fancy Food Show here in New York. I figured 2014 was as good a year as any to fly out and discover why Expo West is everyone’s favorite show.
Is it the crazy list of events one can take part in (sometimes for no additional cost) through the March 6-9 food show, such as yoga classes, guided herb walks, innovation summits, networking events, and concerts? Or is it the 3,000+ exhibitors (the Fancy Food show, in comparison, has 2,400) that fill the Anaheim Convention Center? Perhaps it’s the fact that it’s natural foods and it’s California…and like the happy cows ad, everyone in California is just plain happy.
Having attended food shows only in the eastern part of the USA, ETR food videographer and photographer partner Vic and I are looking forward to the different view on healthy foods, the education sessions and seminars, and an all-new atmosphere. My west coast ETR partner and I are greatly looking forward to seeing what all the hullabaloo is about, so I’m west coast-bound in two weeks to report on innovative new products, west coast and national trends, and foods that are just plane delicious. See you there!
