VMG Partners, ForceBrands, and New Hope Network have joined forces again to offer 10 lucky students FREE badges for Expo West 2019 for “A Day in the Life of Natural Products,” an interactive experience for students to explore the world of CPG during Expo West. We have curated an entire day of meetings with founders, CEOs, investors, influencers, and industry icons who will show you what it’s really like to work in the CPG industry.

Natural Products Expo West and Expo East are the world’s largest natural, organic, and healthy products trade shows. This experience is designed to give students a taste of what it’s like to work in the vibrant CPG industry. Students will have the opportunity to meet with the industry’s most accomplished CEOs and innovative founders, learn from investors on how and why they put capital into brands, and discuss how to navigate a career in natural products.
