What's New in 2023!

We're partnering with (included), a membership collective for BIPOC top executives in CPG who are dedicated to one another’s success, who advocate for diverse representation, and who commit to amplifying BIPOC voices. This exciting partnership guides multiple efforts at both Expo East in Philadelphia and Expo West in Anaheim and is a strong steppingstone in creating a long-term strategy for how our platforms can most effectively elevate BIPOC-owned brands in the industry. Highlights from these efforts include FriDEI Night Concert with Wyclef Jean, Hot Products Booths, tabletops at Harvest Festival, and education!

In Partnership with

Supported by

Diversity Bridge

Diversity Bridge, powered by The Diversity Org, connects students from underrepresented communities to career opportunities, empowering them to rise to their potential and find success in the expansive industries we serve. At Expo East we're excited to host students from the Philadelphia metro area and introduce them to the health and nutrition industry.

Our focus is on empowering students by connecting them to career pathways and opportunities as well as bridging the gap between underrepresented people in the expansive industries we serve.




  • Food and product donations: Products are donated to non-profit Philabundance. This important organization works to provide food to more than 350 partners in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, such as shelters, emergency kitchens, senior centers, and at locations where people access other services, including hospitals, libraries, and schools. In 2022, we were able to donate 80 pounds of food to Philabundance.
  • Exhibitor booth material donations: Usable and non-broken exhibitor booth materials are donated to Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia.  By donating these products, exhibitors are supporting their mission to transform lives and the city by building and repairing homes in partnership with families in need, and uniting all Philadelphians around the cause of affordable housing. 

At Expo, we're keeping your health and wellness in mind when creating our event schedule and onsite layout. We hope you'll consider joining us for one or both of our fitness-focused events
