Big Name Healthcare Suppliers Join The Camexpo Exhibitor Line-Up
Vivomed – the UK’s leading online supplier of first-aid, physiotherapy and sports medicine products – and Ovantis – the UK’s sole distributor of Physiospect NLS bio-resonance devices – are just two of the latest big names to book their places at this year’s camexpo, which returns to London’s Earls Court on 5-6 October 2013.
Firmly established as the UK’s biggest natural healthcare show dedicated to the professional practitioner and therapist market, camexpo offers an essential platform for natural healthcare brands looking to get their products and services in front of just some of the estimated 12 million people who are said to use complementary medicines or therapies in the UK. And they need the show’s influential buying audience (which was over 5,400 strong in 2012) to reach them.
With over half of GPs in the UK now taking a more integrative approach to the treatment and prevention of illness by providing access to forms of therapy outside conventional medicine (according to a 2011 poll by Netdoctor.co.uk), and about one in eight people in the UK now consult a complementary or alternative practitioner each year (source: Arthritis Research UK, 2013), the CAM sector looks set for continued, healthy growth. This is certainly reflected at this year’s camexpo – which sees its biggest line-up of new exhibitors looking to enjoy some of this show’s much talked of ‘buzz’.
Among them are Solgar Vitamins, who’ll be showcasing its new additions to its supplements range for joints (Solgar® 7) and heart (Folate, the ‘body-ready’ form of folic acid); Supplete (AOR Canada’s sole European distributor); practitioner-only supplier – BioMedica Nutraceutials from Australia; specialist medical and physio supplies wholesaler C&P Medical; Cambridge Nutritional Sciences – developer of The Food Detective intolerance test; Algeos UK – a leading supplier of products to the physio and rehabilitation markets; Nucleotide Nutrition, with its immune support and healthy gut supplements NuCell®IM and IntestAid®IB; D’Lite Food Europe – creators of SlendierSlim; Cisca SaltPipe – the original Hungarian cave salt inhaler for asthma, allergies, sinus and respiratory problems; Wildflower Essences, who’ll be showcasing its new Wildflower Oracle set, which includes 28 handmade individual English Wildflower essences (and flower cards for readings); Medica Health International, with its simple to use, non-invasive Theragem™: Crystal Light Therapy range; and Water for Health, distributers of Biocera’s alkaline water products, Vibrant Health’s green superfoods, and Omega Nutrition’s organic, cold pressed healthy oils.
Specialist natural bodycare and beauty suppliers will also be well-represented at this year’s show. New exhibitors include Mahi Naturals – distributers of U Little Beauty, Organic Natralox, and Australia’s leading natural dry skin range Hope’s Relief; Africa-inspired health and beauty brand Aduna; natural toiletries and aromatherapy products supplier New Seasons, Star Corp United Kingdom/Manuka Natural Health – distributors of 100% natural topical massage cream Rubbeez®; Apples & Pears, with its natural skincare and lip balms (handmade using sweet yellow beeswax, cera flava, and honey from its own apiary); Lorem Care, with its 100% natural Emu Oil and Emu Balm; and The Colloidal Company, who’ll be showcasing its colloidal silver, gold and copper solutions and creams; Tropic Skincare, whose Revive Firming Cream won Best Face Moisturiser at Natural Health magazine‘s Beauty Awards 2013; and Essence of Morocco (a finalist in the ‘best new natural beauty & spa product’ category at the Natural and Organic Awards in April), who’ll be treating camexpo visitors an exclusive first try of its new organic prickly pear seed oil (anti-ageing serum), and new range of natural Hammam/spa products.
Busy, informative, invigorating, and enjoyable – that’s the verdict from camexpo 2012. And camexpo 2013 promises more of the same when it returns to Earls Court, London, on 5-6 October 2013; with 200 leading natural healthcare suppliers, associations and training providers, plus over 100 CPD-accredited seminars, workshops and demos from some of the CAM industry’s leading subject specialists.
“It is great to feel part of such a vibrant and welcoming community,” says therapist Emma Diamond, echoing the feedback of many camexpo visitors after last year’s show, “I came back to my clinic buzzing with new products to try and new therapies to consider.”
