Natural & Organic Products Europe 2014 (picture) bid farewell to London’s Olympia, with its biggest ever edition securing a record turnout. Organised by Diversified Communications UK, the two-day annual trade show welcomed 9,503 industry professionals from 77 countries through its doors over 13-14 April. Now in its 18th year, the sold out show featured 550 exhibiting companies.
As ever, the show’s New Product Showcase was a hive of activity – and for the first port of call for many visiting buyers. Featuring a record total of 320 entries for 2014, showcase visitors voted for their favourites on Sunday 13 April. A brilliant line-up of speakers and top retailers made this year’s three theatre seminar programme its best to date. As well as top figures from the natural health world, there were fast-paced business-focused sessions, lively panel discussions, and a tour de force of a talk from organic and Fairtrade pioneer Craig Sams.
Other notable highlights included Natural Food Kitchen sessions (see picture) from Barny Haughton, Dale Pinnock - The Medicinal Chef, who was joined by ITV’s Coronation Street actress Catherine Tyldesley, and cookery writer Jane Hughes, and The Vegan Society’s Ambassador actress Roxy Shahidi. The show’s Natural Beauty & Spa Theatre also played host to the Natural Health Beauty Awards ceremony for the first time.
Natural & Organic Products Europe 2015 will take place on 19-20 April at the new venue of the ExCeL London. More information is available here: http://www.naturalproducts.co.uk/
