The event, hosted in Chicago May 5-7, will leverage RangeMe’s technology to give retail buyers greater access to innovation and a more efficient way to connect with product suppliers.
“For retail buyers, trade shows are an important part of their product discovery mix,” said Nicky Jackson, CEO and Founder of RangeMe. “We want to help make that experience as efficient as possible.”
The Healthy and Natural Show brings together retailers and product manufacturers who are disrupting the industry with new and innovative natural, organic, and nutritional products.
The show - which has a packed educational program - is designed to highlight local and national healthy brands across six categories: food, beverage, supplements, pet products, household products, and personal care.

RangeMe streamlines the product discovery process
RangeMe - an online product discovery platform that has taken the Australian market by storm since its launch there in March 2014 (New Zealand quickly followed) - has already snagged some high-profile partners in the US just six months after launching here, including Jet.com, Heinen’s, Bristol Farms, LuckyVitamin and Target, which now asks all prospective suppliers to make their approach via RangeMe.
“At the moment, buyers are getting contacted via online forms on their websites, email, social media, at trade shows and other events and via brokers and agents, and a lot of it really just goes into a black hole because everyone is presenting the information in a different way and half of it is not relevant," said Jackson. "RangeMe is just a much more efficient way to manage inbound approaches.”
Suppliers using RangeMe, meanwhile, are more likely to get their products in front of the right people, with several telling Jackson that they had repeatedly tried other methods of contacting certain retailers, but only got a response when they joined RangeMe.
