During 2013, I had the opportunity to attend some of the largest conferences and vendor fairs in the gluten free world. From the Celiac Disease Foundation’s National Conference to the the Gluten Free Allergen Free Expo, I met many influential members of the Celiac Disease community and business owners that are working hard every day to support Celiac Awareness and make life easier for the gluten free community.
I’m so excited to share that 2014 will be no different! Kicking off this year, I’ve been invited to speak at the largest natural products expos on the east coast, Natural Products Expo East. In 2013, over 24,000 people attended this expo representing 95 countries! I’ll be participating in a Gluten Free Round Table with some other amazing people in the gluten free community sharing insights and tips for retailers wanting to add gluten free options to their stores.
The Natural Products Expo East will be held at the Baltimore Convention Center from September 17-20, 2014. Currently the Gluten Free Round Table is schedule for Friday, September 18. More details will follow in the next few months! For now, here’s a recap of the Natural Products Expo East 2013:
P.S. I’ll be providing insight from the perspective of a gluten free individual shopping at a retail location. If you have anything you’d like to share with retailers new to gluten free, please leave a comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
