CHFA East Wrap-up

We'll be providing coverage of CHFA East, including new product launches, news and photos from the show and coverage of the CHFA award winners.  We’ll have some photos from the fun we’ll be having at our booth.  We’re holding a TIFF-themed event, including a red carpet, a photo wall, swag bags and mini-interviews with “the stars of the natural health industry” (the retailers!)

Follow-up with customers after CHFA East

When CHFA East is over, CNHR can help you follow-up and re-enforce all of your sales efforts at the show by blanketing your target audience from coast to coast.  

I can explain all of the advertising, new product and editorial opportunities available to you to help you maximize your show expenditures and take your sales message out into the field.  Remember: CNHR reaches all of the retailers who attended the show, plus the thousands who didn’t attend!  Think of CNHR Magazine as your only sales person that gets into all health food stores from coast to coast, six times per year.
