New Hope Natural Media, producer of the top natural, organic and healthy-lifestyle industry tradeshows in the U.S., was recently recognized with top honors for Natural Products Expo West and Natural Products Expo East, for green trade show initiatives, as well as green design and marketing.

For the third year running, Natural Products Expo East and West has been named in Trade Show Executive's Gold 100 Award as the leaders in Green Initiatives within the trade show industry. This award is based on the myriad of eco-friendly practices the events institute through a commitment to sustainability, including: elimination of a printed buyers’ guide; providing an energy offset program for the venue and travel; creating a donation plan for excess product from show floors to benefit charities and nonprofit organizations; providing a paperless press room; developing waste management programs; and creating environmentally friendly booth packages for exhibitors.

"Garnering these awards exemplifies how our event staff continually strives and supersedes standards within the industry to produce well-designed and eco-conscious events," said New Hope Natural Media's Sandy Voss, group show director.

In addition, Natural Products Expo West was recently awarded First Place in The International Association of Exhibitions and Events’ annual Art of the Show graphic design competition for a Green Printed Collateral Piece. "This was the first year the Green Printed Collateral Piece was awarded, and we are proud to be recognized for our steadfast devotion to decreasing our carbon footprint while maintaining our position as the world’s largest natural, organic and healthy products tradeshow," said Natural Products Expo West’s Scott Sherpe, marketing manager.

The upcoming Natural Products Expo West will be held March 10-13, 2011, at the Anaheim Convention Center in California.
