BMSE started in Ashland Oregon in 1986. The expos have always maintained an equal emphasis on natural health, personal growth and metaphysics. Our events balance local participation with the inclusion of a selection of the finest regional and national names in the holistic arena.
The origins of a new-age, alternative-lifestyle, natural-products "Expo," can be traced back to the early 1970s and the days of the Whole Earth Catalog, a widely popular alternative mail order catalog.
Launched by Bradford Rand and his team at Expo International, the idea was conceived after he viewed the film "An Inconvenient Truth." As a producer of over 800 shows & job fairs since 1993, he knew that a showcase of all of the latest & greatest eco-friendly products would make for a solid new trade show.
