Social Sustainability

Running a Socially Responsible Event means...

Keeping accessibility, diversity, inclusion and community at the forefront when planning our event. Below are just a few ways we are doing this. Click the + sign to learn more.


What's New in 2022!

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 conference session collaborations, complimentary NPEV memberships for (included) members, networking events and onsite exhibit space and table top features.

  • Food and product donations: Products will be donated to non-profit Philabundance. This important organizations 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 2021, they distributed over 50 million pounds of food to the local community in need. 
  • Exhibitor booth material donations: Usable and non-broken exhibitor booth materials will be 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. A list of acceptable materials is available at the Exhibitor Service Desk.

At Expo, we're keeping your health and wellness in mind when creating our event schedule and onsite layout. Join us for one or both of our fitness-focused events and enjoy relaxation spots throughout the day with our massage chairs.

We continue to strive for the most accessibility at Expo. Parents, we have dedicated nursing rooms and child care so that while you're browsing the newest products on the trade show floor, you know you're loved ones are being cared for.
