Baltimore, we meet again! Last month, the Aiya team was back in Baltimore for the annual Natural Products Expo East. As much as we love sunny California during the fall, it’s always wonderful getting to feel the crisp breeze of the East coast. As one of the largest natural expos in the US, the NPEE definitely did not disappoint.

Sep 14, 2016 9:29:34 AM

With summer coming to an end (September already?), we wanted to sit down and reflect upon sunnier days from our trip to New York in late June. We flew out for the annual Summer Fancy Food Show – our third one so far. Lots of things seemed to have changed since the 2015 show, but the fun, global vibes were just as we remembered it!

2016 seems to be flying by, and we noticed that it’s been a little while since we’ve written a blog post for you. Here at the Aiya office, we’ve been working on making big improvements to our website, but now that it has officially launched, we bring our blog post hiatus to a close. With that said, we’d love to take the chance to recap and highlight some exciting things that happened at the annual World Tea Expo in early June.

With the beginning of spring came the annual Natural Products Expo West, one of the largest natural/organic trade shows on the west coast. Held at the familiar Anaheim convention center, this show spread out across two entire floors and into the Hilton hotel next door. Though this show has always been large, it seemed to have grown even more this year, with over 3000 exhibitors and 77,000 attendees (according to New Hope Media).

During the beginning of December, the Aiya team exhibited at the 5th annual Los Angeles International Tea Festival. It’s always nice to exhibit at this show because we get to meet people that are local to us. Held at the Japanese American National Museum in Little Tokyo on December 5th and 6th, this was our fourth year in a row as a gold sponsor, and our first year with a larger 10x20 booth space. Normally held in August when it is hot and sunny, this December show had a slightly different vibe with chillier weather and more tea products geared towards the holidays.
