Natural Products Expo East has been selected as the new home for All Things Organic, the organic community's leading business and educational gathering place in North America. In making the announcement, the Organic Trade Association (OTA) stated that the conference will co-locate with Expo East, a partnership that will extend for at least seven years. "This exciting new partnership unites the business and educational strengths of All Things Organic and Natural Products Expo East," said Christine Bushway, OTA's Executive Director. "It will better serve the organic business community by increasing traffic, buyers and attendance at the trade event." Beginning with this year's event October 13 to 16 in Boston, All Things Organic will be the branded organic pavilion for North American organic companies exhibiting at Expo East to distinguish organic businesses from other natural companies at the show.
The All Things Organic conference program will be incorporated into the Expo East educational programs as a dedicated organic session track developed by OTA. In addition, OTA's Annual Meeting will be held at Expo East, and OTA's popular Leadership Awards Dinner and Dance will be held October 15 in junction with the co-location. Furthermore, OTA's International Reverse Trade Mission will help position the event as an international gathering place for organic interests. OTA held the first All Things Organic Conference and Trade Show in 2001 in Austin, which also hosted the 2002 and 2003 events. In 2004, OTA moved the conference and trade show to Chicago, where it was held annually through 2009. (Picture: All Things Organic 2009)
