2022 Major Trade Shows for the Food and Supplement Industries
Trade shows are such an important part of our industry. They’re where we learn about new ingredients and technologies, discuss the latest trends, and form meaningful relationships that can help our businesses grow and thrive. While the COVID pandemic initially caused disruptions to many of these events, 2022 will be the year for us to reconnect at our favorite venues.
Here are the major shows where we plan to see you in 2022:
Natural Products Expo West (March 8-12) Booth #1659 in Hall B
Natural Products Expo West will be in-person and virtual this year with the in-person show at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA. The educational sessions and events start March 8, and the trade show opens on March 9 in the North Hall and March 10 in Halls A-E and the Arena. Expo West is the premier US event for the natural, organic, and healthy products industry, covering the latest in foods, supplements, and ingredients, as well as beauty and home products.
Vitafoods Europe (May 10-12) Booth #D100
Geneva is the place to be this May for Vitafoods Europe 2022. Onsite at Palexpo in Paris, Europe’s top nutraceutical trade show will also be available online from May 2 to 13 due to this year’s hybrid format. This event brings together suppliers and manufacturers, as well as service and equipment providers, to share what’s next in functional foods and beverages.
