What is the MLM Exclusive?2024-03-19T13:12:58+00:00

In the marketplace, there are many holistic health companies that use a Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) approach. We offer a special option exclusively for MLMs. This means that if you’re part of an MLM, you can showcase your brand at our Expo without any other similar businesses being allowed to register as such. We do charge a premium for that option and refer you to the exhibitor option page.

However, if someone else at the Expo has a different primary business but also uses MLM products incidentally, they can still showcase those products. For instance, if a Chiropractor primarily focuses on chiropractic care but also uses MLM essential oils, they can exhibit(use) those oils at the Expo. They just can’t register specifically as an MLM or describe themselves as such.
