Positively Natural Network (Seattle, WA) has announced that the annual Marketplace will now be known as the Natural Products Pacific (NPP) Tradeshow and Educational Conference. “The NPP title better aligns with the true vision of the Positively Natural Network. We are excited to create a show that supports the natural products industry and retailers in the entire Western/Pacific Region as well as reaching those across the entire United States. We look forward to a strong future as the premier educational conference and trade show in the Western U.S.,” said board president Jeremiah Bogenhagen.
The association is looking to the future as it works to continue its dedication to the independent retailers in the natural products industry. In 2020, the association expanded by opening the memberships to the entire Western Region.* They have since worked hard to add value to the membership through various means like moving the show to a more central western location in Las Vegas. The new name will better encompass the direction in which the association plans to pivot.
Bogenhagen, along with Executive Director Rana Manzi, in concert with the entire board of directors, have worked to create a new vision for the association. This vision, as follows, was released at the Annual Board Meeting on August 31, 2022: “The Positively Natural Network envisions an industry that comes together to the greater health of the entire planet. We look to partner with sustainability experts, research scientists and impact partners (influencers), as well as our current supply members to create a network of like-minded people for the benefit of all our members. Positively Natural Network will produce the Natural Products Pacific (NPP) Show, as well as create educational experiences throughout the year. We shall expand our vision for the health and benefit of humanity as well as Mother Earth.”
