Expo West each year is one of my favorite times of the year! It's the largest natural foods expo in the country and for four days straight I live and breathe all the newest, most innovative, green, eco-conscious, organic brands in the industry! I also do a mini cleanse before each one as it's one of the few times throughout the year that I open my belly up to such a wide variety of foods ~ ones I normally don't eat on a regular basis. The things we do to help and support our clients through curating this expansive, yet amazing wellness space!
This year, as always, was a blast! I met so many incredible people, was moved and inspired by our collective missions and truly touched by the love and dedication this community has toward making a difference. I was introduced and educated on such a variety of quality products, brands and companies. There is such a wide range each year ~ companies just entering the wellness space, or launching a new product and of course my favorite trusted and true brands that are yearly staples at EXPO WEST!
I love meeting the "newbie" companies that are making their big debut ~ presenting and being a vendor at EXPO WEST is very much like a right of passage for these brands. It's so inspiring hearing about their "first experiences" and all the incredible feedback and relationships they are building. I'm such a fan of the small companies, built up from true passion and a love for something so deep they have no choice but to follow their dreams and present it to the world! That's how I feel about the work I do ~ so grateful!
Many vendors were welcomed rediscoveries of the companies I already love and support ~ like stopping by and talking to the wonderful creator and founder of Sovereign Silver, a staple in the Wellynest household. We will share more in the near future about our old favorites (and even some newer favorties), however today I wanted to share with you a few fun, new finds from Expo this year ~ whether it was a new product line from an already beloved company or a completely new find all together these products made EXPO that much greater for us this year!
