Natural Awakenings Chicago

The Healthy & Natural Show is Coming to Chicago

Mar 27, 2016 12:24AM

Wellness guru Dr. Joseph Mercola is headlining Chicago’s inaugural edition of The Healthy & Natural Show, which will kick off May 5 and run through May 7 at the Navy Pier with an educational program geared toward demystifying topics in the organic, natural and sustainable products marketplace. In 2009, Mercola was voted the Ultimate Wellness Game Changer by the Huffington Post.

Seminars, keynotes and workshops include interpreting current science, understanding consumer confusion about product labels, creating product differentiation, and anticipating and understanding emerging needs and demands. Organizer Len Monheit says, “We’re going to newly empower our retail community by providing them with an intimate show experience that leverages new information, along with access to an exhibitor base filled with leaders and disrupters.”

Featured speakers include Kora Lazarski, business development and marketing manager for SPINS, a leading market research group covering natural and organic products; and Chicago resident Jennifer Amdur Spitz, a branding consultant at Amdur Spitz & Associates. Lazarski will share insights using SPINS data to help retailers and brands understand how to leverage this changing market. Spitz, producer of the award-winning documentary Food Patriots, will focus on how the good food movement is scaling beyond the fringe.
