Nicci Herrrera hosting the 2023 Retail Beauty Expert Panel discussion.

Australia’s most anticipated event in the natural and healthy living sector, Naturally Good, is welcoming registrations for its upcoming expo. Scheduled to take place at the Sydney International Convention Centre on the 3rd and 4th of June, 2024, the event marks its ninth year with promises of unprecedented innovation. With over 200 exhibitors and more than 20 presentations, attendees are set to explore the latest products and consumer trends that are shaping the natural industry.


Naturally Good is not just an expo but a celebration of trailblazing brands across Beauty & Personal Care, as well as various other sectors, including Food & Beverage, Home & Living, Vitamins & Supplements, and Beauty & Personal Care. “Our mission is to consolidate trendsetting natural health products from specialty retailers into one accessible platform,” said Sofie Teh, Naturally Good Product Manager. “This enables buyers to directly experience the excellence of these products, affirming their popularity and efficacy.”

This year, the expo places a spotlight on the Natural Beauty Industry, introducing a Beauty Stage curated by Cathy Tolpigin of The Green Edit. This platform is dedicated to delivering firsthand industry insights through the experiences of leading figures, focusing on pivotal topics like men’s grooming, tween and TikTok beauty trends, inclusivity, and the implications of ageing.

“Australian consumers are quickly becoming more conscious of the impacts that skincare and makeup have on their holistic health,” Sofie said. “With this has come a surge of Australian brands that meet the consumers’ priorities and the growth in demand.”


The Naturally Good Summit kicks off on Monday June 3, starting at 7.30am and continues until 2pm, offering a packed schedule to help participants stay ahead of the curve. The summit will cover a wide range of topics critical for understanding and capitalising on the latest trends and influential factors that are shaping product and brand innovation, marketing strategies, and consumer behaviour. Keynote speakers for the summit include Maha Corbett and Sally Obermeder, co-founders of SWIISH. Other first speakers announced are Jessica Gordoun of Ranged Pty Ltd, Alex Cornish of Ordinary Equity, Roz White of White’s IGA Group, and Chelsea Ford of Foodpreneurs. These speakers are set to share their insights and experiences, providing valuable learning opportunities for all attendees. The summit also offers an excellent networking opportunity, where participants can connect with key retailers, distributors, and other industry players. This networking is aimed at fostering relationships that could lead to future collaborations.
