New Hope Natural Media will suspend the Natural Products Association MarketPlace tradeshow scheduled to be held in Las Vegas in June 2013. The decision to suspend this event will allow for delivery of new opportunities more strategically aligned with today’s market needs.
“We plan to shift our emphasis to further develop our partnership with the Natural Products Association. This shift will create new opportunities for the natural products industry, surrounding our trade shows,” says Fred Linder, President, New Hope Natural Media.
Since 2008, New Hope Natural Media and the Natural Products Association have worked together to support the natural products retailer and the industry at large with the production of Natural Products Association MarketPlace. This partnership will continue via new programs and initiatives in the near future and the benefits will remain intact for NPA members.
“The Natural Products Association appreciates the work we’ve done with New Hope throughout the years. While it is unfortunate the show won’t go on, we understand the business reasons behind it. NPA has always sought to connect retailers and suppliers in the marketplace. We are committed to this goal and our work with New Hope to achieve it. NPA looks forward to new developments within this relationship in 2013 and beyond,” says John Shaw, Executive Director and CEO, Natural Products Association.
