Update your Contact Information OR Submit a Proposal for Natural Products Expo West, Natural Products Expo East, Next Innovation Summit, Engredea, and NBJ Summit.

Thank you for your interest in presenting! Below are the submission guidelines and instructions for submitting a speaking proposal.

Please be aware that we receive hundreds of submissions for each show, and you will be notified if yours is chosen. We often invite additional panelists to join sessions, so you may or may not be the sole presenter if your session is chosen.

Submission Guidelines:

  • Audience for Natural Products Expo West and Expo East: Our primary audience is retailers in the natural products industry, so any topic must be geared towards them.
  • Audience for Next Innovation Summit, Engredea, NBJ Summit: Our primary audience is made up of manufacturers, R&D professionals, scientists, and C-level executives. Any topic must be geared towards them.

Audio/Visual: Visual presentations are not required, but if you choose to use slides, please note:

  • We use PCs in session rooms. Any powerpoint or video for your presentation must work with a PC laptop. If you are a Mac user, your presentation must be saved as a pdf and loaded on the PC with a thumb drive.
  • iPads are not allowed for presenting, due to frequent upgrades in projector adaptors and software.
  • *If you choose to use your own Mac for your presentation, it is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct adaptor beforehand*
  • Bring your presentation on a thumb drive

Post-Show Materials: Please be prepared to submit the final version of your presentation to the conference manager in order to post on our website after the show.

Please Note: Presenters are prohibited from self-promotion, and may not hand out marketing materials or product samples to the audience, and cannot sell services onsite. The most common complaint we receive from attendees is when presenters pitch themselves or their services during an education session.
