The below information is subject to change as we continue to track this situation and receive guidance from state and local health authorities, the CDC and WHO, and we will provide regular and timely updates to help the community best prepare for Natural Products Expo East (NPEE).
Expo East is set to occur September 23-26, 2020. Although we do not anticipate it at this time, if the current COVID-19 crisis results in the need to postpone or cancel the show, all registered attendees will be notified via email and refunds will be provided for all paid badges, education upgrades, trainings and tours that were associated with the official registration for the Expo East 2020 event.
All cleaning practices have been thoroughly enhanced to ensure we are exceeding standards for disinfecting and hygiene with an increased focus on key touchpoints including high-traffic areas, handles and rails, restrooms, food and beverage areas, information desks and conference and meeting rooms.
NPEE will apply crowd density standards, in accordance with local and authorities’ guidance, to control the density of the show floor and community gathering spaces and allow for appropriate physical distancing.
