NOPA 2015 visitor activity. Show visitors are expected to grow strongly this year.

 Pre-registration is now open for Natural & Organic Products Asia (NOPA), the largest natural and organic products trade show in Asia, which is ready to bring over 1,000 premium natural and organic food health, eco living and beauty brands from over 30 countries to buyers in the Asia-Pacific region on 31 August to 2 September at the Hong Kong Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

With Hong Kong a major retail market, it is also a gateway to China, and analysts predict that annual organic consumption in China will increase by 30-50% over the next decade.

NOPA is more ambitious in every element this year bringing the newest and exclusive products to buyers in the region and invites all natural and organic buyers and peers to the expo who can activate their free entry pass. NOPA will celebrate its third edition in Hong Kong, following the success of the second edition in 2015.

The expo, which takes place at Hall 1E of the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, is perfectly located for regional trading, sourcing and buying and attracts International, Chinese and regional manufacturers, suppliers, wholesalers, retailers and buyers.

“NOPA is an ideal sourcing platform for health enthusiasts, businesses and entrepreneurs who are sourcing anything innovative and advanced in the natural and organic sector,” organisers Diversified Communications said.

“At last year’s show, NOPA achieved spectacular results, with a record-breaking 206 exhibitors from 31 countries – showcasing more than 1,000 products to 6,211 international buyers.”

For 2016, more than 9,000 international visitors will get to see the best of Asia’s natural and organic food, personal care and cosmetics products, nutritional products, daily necessities and related services, Diversified added.

The event covers four major segments:
The Natural Food Show – Gathering everything from big brand organics to natural and specialty food producers; Natural Beauty & Spa – Personal care, hair, anti-aging, free-from cosmetics, body care, mineral, everything fairtrade, organic, vegan and ethical to treat body and mind; Natural Living – Quality lifestyle products that don’t cost the earth; and Natural Health – From nutritional supplements to slimming, sports and herbal remedies, everything for a healthy lifestyle.

Hong Kong, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and the United States are among the country pavilions, while Sweden’s organic certification and industry group KRAV is organising a pavilion. Natural and Organic Products Asia 2016 will also showcase the best and latest offers in the multi-dimensional body and soul products, women’s wellness, and health and beauty.
