The Expo is an annual trade show in Anaheim featuring natural, organic, and healthy products produced by artisan food makers from around the world. This year’s expo was the largest show yet. Expo West reported 6.9 percent growth, with more than 3,000 exhibiting companies and over 77,000 attendees. 15 members of Team Oregon, including partners Jill Miles from Business Oregon, Cindy Hagen from Clackamas County, Issac Barrow from Port of Portland, Melissa Hunting from Portland General Electric, and George Cress from Forest Grove co-hosted a booth with six Oregon companies promoting their companies.
