Even though much of the talk at Natural Products Expo West usually centers around the new products being unveiled, I always like to recognize the companies that put extra effort into designing the most interesting and imaginative trade show booths.

To me, it speaks volumes about the companies who go the extra mile to create experiences that are both unique and memorable.

At Natural Products Expo West 2014, two booths really stood out and interestingly enough, it was the same people who took home the prize in 2013 as well.

SUJA

At this time last year, Greg Fleishman was Chief Marketing Officer for Sambazon and the person responsible for creating that company’s award-winning tiki booth.

This year, Greg is Chief Marketing Officer at pressed organic juice powerhouse Suja, and he achieved a similar result. If you combine these two accolades with all of the impressive product launches that he has overseen, Greg Fleishman is cementing his reputation as one of the best marketing executives in the industry. Period.

Suja’s booth resonated with me for two main reasons. Read more »

As many of you probably know, I was recently attended Natural Products Expo East 2013 in Baltimore, Maryland.

When I go there each year, there are two things are pretty much guarantees for me.

One, I stay at the AMAZING Inn at the Black Olive, the most green/organic hotel I’ve ever encountered.

Two, I make a visit to Liquid Earth, a fantastic organic restaurant just a few blocks away from the hotel.  Liquid Earth serves raw and cooked vegan organic food in a wonderful environment.

During my most recent visit, I shot this video above and you’ll spot two of my friends, Food Babe and Lora Krulak, in the footage as well. Enjoy! Read more »

Yet, it only took a few seconds to realize who the clear winner was.

BRAD’S RAW FOODS 

best-trade-show-booth-expo-east-2013-brads-raw-foods

Dubbed “the Barn” by the company, this amazing piece of work accomplished two things.

One, it accentuated the brand’s packaging with the wood’s color and texture. Two, it maximized the allotted floor space since the second level was able to hold up to 10 people and served as a private space for meetings.

Possibly, the smartest thing about this booth was that Brad’s Raw Foods created a video (see below) on how it was built. Read more »

Every time I see Pete Overgaag, President of Hollandia Produce (the parent company of Grower Pete’s), at an organic trade show, I always run over to him with great excitement. I repeatedly remind him of the time that I discovered his lettuce growing in an actual pot at my local supermarket. After a few years, my enthusiasm for his product still hasn’t waned. Read more »
