In 2011, the company boldly defied the economic doldrums the country and Los Angeles county was experiencing to launch the West Coast Expo, a three-day event that focused on business, technology, and green sustainability. It also featured segments on healthy living via food and other products. The West Coast Expo will become the company’s signature event that is expected to drive more than 50,000 visitors through the doors during the three-day period.
