"The 2016 SupplySide West Education Program proved to be among the best yet," said John Helfrick, director, BASF Human Nutrition, North America. "This was my fi rst visit to a SupplySide West show, and it was fascinating to hear fi rsthand about the challenges as well as the opportunities colleagues face each day. One thing rings true from these varied conversations: timely and credible education is key to our success. It's the content quality and relevance to critical topics impacting our industry that drive BASF to continuously renew sponsorship of the Education Program." Attendees could also seek learning and networking opportunities in the Expo Hall at SupplySide Central. Offering a variety of interactive, quick-paced programming designed to delve into some of the hot topics facing the industry, SupplySide Central featured topics from the Ingredient Launchpad, where exhibitors highlighted their new products, to the 5th Annual CPG Editor's Choice Awards, where SupplySide West recognized the most innovative product launches in supplements, and food and beverages. The list of winners is available on page 8. "In today's dynamic health and nutrition market, getting the insights necessary to drive product development and launch is critical to market success," said Heather Granato, vice president of content for Informa's Global Health & Nutrition Network. "SupplySide West offers thematically based content with information that can be applied immediately, whether in the boardroom, the lab or the manufacturing plant." A variety of event features and networking opportunities also allowed show participants to make key industry connections. In its second year, the First-Time Attendee Reception, sponsored by NattoPharma, brought together fi rst-time show participants with industry "rock stars" to share insights on how to make the most of the show. In the Expo Hall, special pavilions targeted important ingredient sectors—omega-3s, developed with the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED) and sponsored by Catalant; and probiotics, developed with the International Probiotics Association (IPA) and sponsored by Nutrasource. Many industry associations also maximized their exposure with membership meetings and education programming—including the Botanical Congress from the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA)— and actively supported SupplySide's Compliance Program, an initiative in its fi fth year dedicated to ensuring exhibitors are compliant with appropriate regulatory standards.
