Thinking about getting into the wellness industry? Then you won’t want to miss the Natural & Organic Products Asia (NOPA) show. It’s Asia’s largest B2B showcase of everything health, natural, organic, eco and more! Back for its fourth year at the HK Convention & Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai from Wednesday August 30th through Friday September 1st 2017, it’s the must-attend event of the season for industry insiders. NOPA Brand Ambassador & Exhibitor Green Queen has put together a handy list of tips for all NOPA show visitors in advance of the event. See you there!
Have A Plan
The show’s a lot bigger this year so make sure to review the exhibitor listing on NOPA’s website first. Conveniently, you can search by keyword, or view listings by show sections like Health & Nutrition, Natural Beauty & Spa, Natural Living and the Natural Food Show.
Budget For Extra Time
Make sure to leave time for browsing- one of the most rewarding experiences of attending a show like NOPA is walking around and seeing what’s going on. There are literally thousands of products to check out, many of them new! If you want to get a head start, you can check out the products that have been shortlisted for the Natural & Organic Awards Asia Showcase.
Look Out For Trends
NOPA is the ideal place to get caught up on the latest and greatest industry trends in wellness. Find out what ingredients are popular this year, the latest in product innovation, the most eco packaging solutions du jour, global market opportunities, the hottest natural beauty brands, the most important markets for organic across the planet, what foods you will be eating next year and so much more.
On top of welcoming thousands of buyers from across Asia and the world to connect with 250+ global exhibitors, NOPA also boasts the Natural Business Forum and the NOPA Live Theatre, specialty show features with a rotating cast of industry experts and talents that will share all manner of insight and impart all kinds of knowledge. Make sure to check out Green Queen founder Sonalie Figueiras’s session on Sep 1st at 1:45PM, which will cover the show’s Most Innovative Organic Products & Industry Trends.
Talk To Business Owners
With over 250+ exhibitors, NOPA boasts a wealth of business creators, entrepreneurs, marketing managers, sales teams and Biz Dev folk that you can mine for information about building a wellness brand. It’s a great opportunity to network with the industry movers and shakers and learn from those who have paved the way.
Be An Eco Visitor
Bring a bag for all the samples- one of the funnest parts of the show. And it’s the Natural & Organic Products Asia people, so you can’t exactly ask for a plastic bag! Even better: bring a reusable cup so you can try drinks and your own cloth napkin & steel utensils set so you don’t use up the disposable ones.
