New Hope Network is proud to partner with VerticalXchange to offer a brand-to-buyer matchmaking program! NaturalProductsXchange is designed to match exhibiting brands with retail buyers, food service professionals, health practitioners, and investors, bringing you together for one-on-one meetings.
For attendees who match this business category criteria, our team will match you with exhibitors who meet your specific needs and bring you together for in-person meetings in the Connections Lounge on the show floor.
And we’ll make it easy! Click here to provide a little information about your company, needs, and availability.
We will put together a list of the exhibitors who make the best potential matches for you, and send it to you via email before the show. Then you’ll have the opportunity to select the best options for your onsite meetings at the Connections Lounge.
Studies show that the low- or non-alcoholic drinks markets have been steadily growing for several years and are projected to accelerate as time goes on. Being 'Sober Curious' is a term that refers to a growing trend of people who are choosing either to take a break from alcohol for a short period of time or even permanently. This rising sobriety trend has resulted in more adult consumers seeking alternative beverages from their local retail store and/or favorite restaurant.
The New Hope Innovation Experience (co-located with Expo East) is the place to learn about, engage with, taste, discuss, and even challenge the newest innovations that have the potential to gain ground with businesses and consumers and ultimately change the world.

New Hope Network is known across the industry for Natural Products Expos East and West, and now, we’re extending the high standards and level of trust that retailers have for Expo to Beacon Discovery, our anytime-anywhere digital discovery platform.
Beacon Discovery is the first end-to-end commercial and proprietary data solution for online natural product discovery. Through minimum acceptable standards and filtering options, Beacon Discovery makes it simple for buyers and brands with aligned priorities to find each other for business that positively impacts people and planet.
With the tremendous growth in the CPG marketplace, brands are able to be seen, heard, and found by retailers through the high standards upheld by New Hope Network. This is true not only for Natural Products Expos, but also for Beacon Discovery. The platform is available to exhibitors and included in booth fees.
Currently, Beacon Discovery is available to CPG brands, including food and beverage products and supplements. Soon, we will be expanding Beacon Discovery to include beauty, cleaning, and pet products.
Top retail buyers, as well as service providers, brokers, marketing agencies, and more are looking for new products and brands on Beacon Discovery. Beacon Discovery helps retailers plan their Natural Products Expo experience by giving them product details and brand story before the show. Products that retailers mark as “favorites” will be even converted into a show map for easy navigation.
