September is always a busy time for Source! Every year we attend both the “Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) East” in Toronto, as well as “Natural Products Expo East”, in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. These Expo’s offer us a unique experience to not only meet up with our existing clients, but also to get a good taste of what is new and exciting in the Natural Health Product and health food industries. Every year we look forward to experiencing what new industry trends are on the rise and to see where the markets are headed.
Both CHFA East and Expo East kick off the second week of September:
Naturals Products Expo East runs from September 13th-16th, with the trade show starting on the 14th and a wide variety of educational events and opportunities running the entire length of the convention.
Natural Products East is the East Coast’s leading trade show in the natural, organic and healthy products industry, attracting over 28,000 industry professionals and 1,900 exhibits to the Baltimore Convention Center. Rated as one of the top 200 trade shows in the US by Trade Show News Network, Natural Products Expo East continues to help attendees reach their business goals. Our very own Stuart will be there!
