What ETHOS Means at Expo

Natural Products Expo ETHOS Initiative

ETHOS stands for Equality, Trustworthy, Humanity, Open-Hearted, Safety

At New Hope Network, we are working to cultivate a prosperous high-integrity CPG and retail ecosystem that creates health, joy and justice for all people while regenerating the planet. We strive to create an environment of mutual respect, free from harassment and unprofessional behavior.

We promote equal opportunities, regardless of race, gender, religion, political opinion, ability, sexual orientation, marital status, or age. Join us in honoring the values upon which Natural Products Expo is built: equity, integrity and transparency.

Join us in modeling the changes we want to see in the world when the industry gathers at Expo East, September 28 - October 1, 2022 in Philadelphia!


Health, Joy and Justice for All

We want everyone at Natural Products Expo to feel safe and respected.  These are our next steps to help make that a reality:

1. Sexual Harassment training for all New Hope Network staff prior to arriving in Philadelphia.

2. Educational session available pre-show for all attendees and exhibitors on the Natural Products Expo Virtual platform.

3. Incorporating an alcohol-free zone at both live concerts. Our dry bar will be conveniently located at the Grand Hall Overlook and will feature non-alcoholic beverages and specialty mocktails. 

4. "See something, say something" campaign to include signage located around the building, New Hope Network staff contact cards, printed badges, and mobile app. If you are experiencing or witnessing unsafe behaviors, a hazardous environment, or harassment and/or unprofessional behavior of any nature onsite, call or text this number to alert us: 213-222-3508.

5. Partnership with WOAR in Philadelphia whose mission is to end sexual violence. Visit their tabletop in the Grand Hall and look for advocates wearing, "See something, say something" shirts around the trade show floors and at both evening concerts. 

6. A 24-hour phone number will coincide with this campaign for use by anyone associated with the event who finds themself in an uncomfortable situation.

7. Increased presence of security, not only in the exhibit hall, but also at networking gatherings and partner events.

8. Creation of an official ETHOS statement that has been, and will continue to be, widely circulated to provide clarity to on-site expectations.

9. The following conduct statements incorporated into registration for both attendees and exhibitors to read, understand, and agree to

  • I agree to treat all registered participants, staff, and vendors with mutual dignity and respect, regardless of race, gender, religion, political opinion, ability, sexual orientation, marital status, or age.
  • I agree that harassment of any kind will not be tolerated. Every participant of Natural Products Expo has a responsibility to foster a harassment-free environment.
  • I agree to honor the values upon which Natural Products Expo is built on: equity, integrity and transparency.
  • I understand that my actions have consequences; and if I act against the statements agreed to above, New Hope Network/Informa Markets has the right to remove me permanently from the event and refuse my entry to future events.

These wide-ranging initiatives are intended to help prevent harassment and ensure the safest, most inclusive event environments possible.
