The Natural Products Expo West 2024 kicks off March 12 at the Anaheim Convention Center. Classes and events begin today, while the show floors open tomorrow.
Perhaps 60,000 people will converge at the convention center from March 13 to 16 to sample, test and learn about natural products including food, supplements, herbal medicine, body care, kitchen equipment, pet supplies, and more.

The show is open to those in the natural products field from retailers, health practitioners, food service providers, suppliers, distributors, investors to qualified business services.

Registration is typically free months in advance but increases in price the closer it gets to the event. Onsite registration is now $140. Guards will be stationed at all entrances to check for ID and badges.

The floor plan is smaller this year compared to before the pandemic. In years past, exhibits filled the whole convention center and occupied part of the adjacent Marriott and Hilton hotels. The main floor of the convention center showcases natural and specialty foods (Hall A, B, and E and the arena), Supplements (Hall D), and lifestyle products (Hall C).
The North Hall and Level 3 of the convention center feature hot new products.
Musical guests will perform at the Grand Plaza from 6 to 8 p.m. There is a large area for dancing and many areas to sit and relax after a long day of walking while enjoying the music under the evening sky.
Parking at the convention center fills up early in the morning for $20, while the adjacent hotels on Harbor Boulevard within walking distance offer parking typically from $40 to $50 per vehicle. Free shuttle buses are offered to and from Angel Stadium, where parking is also free.
