CPG Products

Trade shows are great places to get visibility for your products, introduce new products, and build brand awareness. Trade shows are attended by the media, industry experts, buyers, and distributors. They can help you get the word out about your brand. 

Here are some top CPG trade shows to attend in 2023: 

Natural Products Expo West - March 7-11, Anaheim, California

This show is attended by many buyers and distributors and is better for established brands. 57,000 people attended the show in 2022. For healthy CPG products that seek the attention of retailers, this is one of the largest national conferences. There is an east conference in September in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but it's smaller and better for first-timers. 

Summer Fancy Food Show - June 25-27, New York City

Over 2,600 vendors in 40 product categories can be expected to showcase more than 200,000 food and drink products at this show. It also features educational sessions on industry topics like supply chains and branding. It's a great networking opportunity for CPG food brands that want to get their products into specialty grocery stores.
