Hi Three to Five Tribe! I have a very exciting announcement. Next month I will be attending Natural Products Expo West 2019! After years of having major FOMO at the beginning of every March I will FINALLY be attending Expo West. What’s Expo West? It’s only the largest grocery trade show in North America. (No big deal or anything). Yeah, no, this is a huge deal.
With 80,000+ industry professionals and 3,100+ exhibits, Expo West is basically the Super Bowl of the natural foods industry. Each March, individuals and companies alike flock to Anaheim for this major event. From individuals like Whole30 co-founder Melissa Hartwig to companies like Simple Mills, anyone who is anyone in the industry attends Expo West and this year I will be one of the lucky attendees! (Insert high pitched girlie squeal of excitement here).
If you know me, then you know very well that I could literally spend the whole day talking about my love for health, wellness, nutrition, real foods and the latest food trends, so the fact that I have a weeklong all access pass to seminars, all of the main halls and networking events with the hopes of meeting other individuals and companies who share my affinity for natural foods is an absolute dream come true. (Sampling the latest food products is just going to be an added bonus). #yum In all seriousness though, I am most looking forward to seeing what trends emerge from Expo West this year and reporting back to all of you fine people.
If you are going to be at Expo West next month, please let me know. I would love to meet up for an early morning yoga session or perhaps we can grab a juice and walk the halls together. Either way, let me know!
*A special shoutout to everyone (and one special person in particular) who has supported me along the way in my health and wellness journey, both personally and professionally. Without you all, this trip of a lifetime would not be possible and for that I am eternally grateful.
Counting down the days to Expo West three to five days at a time,
