Nature’s Best hosts annual trade show in Ontario, CA
Brea, CA (October 4, 2012) – Nature’s Best held its annual California trade show with the “Spectacular Carnival of Savings,” on Friday September 28 at the Ontario Convention Center in Ontario, CA. The one day trade show drew more than five hundred independent retailers, natural products vendors and brokers from the Western, Central and Southern United States and Hawaii.
A new feature at this year’s show was the vendor showcase, which provided the opportunity for vendors to meet one-on-one with the Nature’s Best sales team in a small group setting the day before the show. Vendors were given the chance to present their line, answer questions and provide samples directly to the sales team.
“The first annual vendor showcase was a huge success; it was a great opportunity for our team to connect with the manufacturers and provided for easy introductions to their retailers while walking the show floor.” said Eric Kawamoto, Nature’s Best Sales Manager.
The evening prior to the show Nature’s Best hosted a spectacular evening of food, drinks and clowning around with a balloon artist, caricature artist and photo booth.
The morning program provided attendees the opportunity to listen to presentations on Nature’s Best technology/website navigation as well as a newly added presentation on social media strategies for the independent retailer.
The show brings together retailers from across the country and allows them to congregate in a central location with top manufacturers from frozen, refrigerated, grocery, perishable, HBA and supplement companies. “The show was one of the best shows in our company’s history with the most vendors and retailers in attendance,” stated Jim Beck, Nature’s Best CEO. “We look forward to expanding on the format next year.”
