KNOWN FOR BRINGING TOGETHER RETAILERS, DISTRIBUTORS, BRAND OWNERS AND NATURAL HEALTH INDUSTRY EXPERTS, THE NATURALLY GOOD EXPO 2017 DID NOT DISAPPOINT!
This year Unique went bigger and better, bringing hundreds of brands and thousands of products to display. The team also offered hours of tastings and sampling, countless amounts of generous goodies bags and Dale (UHP Managing Director) and the team shared the wealth of knowledge gained from being in the industry for over three decades.
For those who were amongst the 6,322 who attended The Naturally Good Expo in Sydney, it was fantastic to meet you and discuss our industry trends and what’s new!
As the biggest trade show in the Southern Hemisphere for everything healthy we were thrilled to be surrounded by like-minded professionals.
For those who unfortunately were unable to make it this year, we’ll catch you up on what you missed.
