  • The New Hope Network content team curates programming and speakers for each educational opportunity based on a combination of research, recommendations, input from advisory boards, and proposal review. At the end of any proposal submission window, we summon our editorial power, combined knowledge, and industry expertise to create impactful educational programming and speaking opportunities. We aim to showcase new and disruptive expert voices that will help to grow and contribute to the success of the natural products and healthy lifestyle industry.

This includes retailers, health practitioners, distributors/brokers, service providers, suppliers and manufacturers. We aim to provide educational content that is compelling, timely, relevant, unbiased, and interesting to this audience.
