The Natural Products Association’s official trade show and conference, Natural Products Association MarketPlace, is scheduled for June 14-16 at The Venetian Resort Hotel and the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.
Now produced by New Hope Natural Media, the event targets independent retailers—allowing them to source new products and develop industry relationships.
Qualified retail buyers and distributors enjoy free early-bird pricing through April 27. Qualified health-practitioner buyers who are NPA members are also eligible for the free early-bird registration price until April 27. All other categories are encouraged to register by April 27 to take advantage of discounted, early-bird rates.
This year’s show theme is in-depth interaction. For the first time retailers will have the opportunity to hear product pitches on the latest trends and emerging science at the New Products Showcase LIVE!. Also debuting this year will be The Impress the Press Showcase, designed to engage media with product launches.
“Now more than ever, both retailers and manufacturers must stay abreast of the politics and policies that impact us, product trends that affect us both regionally and nationally, and the best ways to use this knowledge to help consumers and to gain a competitive advantage in our businesses,” said Jeff Wright, NPA president and owner of Wright’s Nutrients.
Event highlights include:
- Understanding the NPA seal
- The Science of Wellness supplements series
- The Science of Wellness personal-care series
- The Business of Wellness social-media essentials
The Welcome Reception is scheduled for the evening of Thursday June 14, and the annual President’s Reception, sponsored by Bluebonnet, is set for Friday, June 15.
