Two days. More than 1,700 booths. Over 10,000 ingredients. Welcome to SupplySide West 2014!
Need help navigating through the biggest SupplySide yet? Me too. When in doubt, head to SupplySide Central—your hub for interactive education, media and more. On Wednesday and Thursday, SupplySide Central will tackle the hottest topics in the industry today, from genetically modified organisms (GMOs) to DSHEA. Below, I’ve listed a few of my must-see events at SupplySide Central.
Wednesday, 12:45 to 1:15 p.m.
Thursday, 12:30 to 1 p.m.
Wednesday, 11:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.
Thursday, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Join 12 industry rockstars as they deliver fast-paced presentations (think: TED Talks) on crucial topics such sustainability, FDA enforcement and GRAS notifications. Speakers include medicine hunter Chris Kilham, Loren Israelsen of the United Natural Products Association, and FDA’s Janet McDonald, Ph.D.
World of Nutrition Talk Show
Wednesday, 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.
Enter DSM’s World of Nutrition for an hour-long talk show discussing the latest science and marketing insights across countless health fields. TV veteran Anna Williamson will host the show, with panelists including Michael McBurney, VP of science, communications and advocacy at DSM Nutritional Products; Julie Quick, SVP and head of insights and strategy at the consumer-retail market agency Shoptology; and Jason McGrath, SVP and global director of food and nutrition insights for Edelman-Berland. Attendance for the World of Nutrition Talk Show is free, but seating is limited.
But wait, that’s not all (sorry, I had to!). You won’t want to miss out on INSIDER’s back-to-back documentary screenings. Stop by from 3 to 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday to watch the DSHEA 20th Anniversary and Modernizing the Chinese Supply Chain documentaries—two projects our editorial can’t wait to share with you.
