“Our community relies on exhibitions to gain distribution and build their businesses,” said Debra Short, SENPA Executive Director. “SOHO Healthfest will provide the resources to help our retailers and suppliers continue to nourish human connections, especially now, when we need them most.” 

SENPA also announced that the 2020 SENPA Road Shows will be cancelled, and the SENPA Education Committee will convene and consider current and new options for 2021 SOHO Road Show.

“I’m thankful that we at SENPA can provide an event that will help uplift and educate our retailers and partners,” said Lester Burks, CEO of Life Line Foods, LLC and SENPA board president. “Independent natural product retailers are central to the health and wellbeing of the people in the communities we serve.”
