Expos and association meetings

If you needed an excuse to visit the Inner Harbor, you’ve got it. The Natural Products Expo East is scheduled to take place in Baltimore from October 4 to 7, 2006 at the Baltimore Convention Center. Features will include everyting from the Organic Harvest Festival all the way to Pure Decadence. While you are there be sure to see the rebuilt B&O Railroad museum.

On the other side of the globe, the Natural Products Expo Japan will be held on September 21 to 23 in Tokyo at the International Exhibition Center. Set aside time to ride the high speed Shinkansen to Kyoto for a day.

On the west coast? No problem. The American Asociation of Naturopathic Physicians annual meeting will be held in Portland, Oregon on August 9 to 12 at the Portland Oregon Convention Center. Never been to Portland, but the timning is good, as the rainy season runs from October through May.
