SupplySide West 2023 Recap
SupplySide West is the leading event on the West Coast for dietary supplements, food and beverage, personal care, and animal nutrition. The show was held last month at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas from October 23 to 27 with the Expo Hall on October 25-26.
SupplySide West brings together thousands of buyers and suppliers for five days of networking and education. Held together with Food ingredients North America (FiNA), this event connects CPG dietary supplement and food & beverage manufacturers with a global array of ingredient suppliers and distributors to support the growing global health and wellness market.
SupplySide West kicked off with a First-Time Visitor Reception on October 24, giving newcomers the opportunity to network with industry experts and the SupplySide team before the event.
Paramount Global was a returning exhibitor, and it was a great chance to meet new and existing customers to discuss their packaging challenges while offering innovative solutions. There was a lot of talk about sustainable materials and a strong interest in environmentally friendly packaging options.
The New Product Zone showcased the latest innovative ingredients and finished products, including sports nutrition, dietary supplements, and personal care products. There were also educational sessions, as well as three-hour sessions on product development, market strategies, trends, clinical research, formulation considerations, regulatory changes, and more. Daily activities included wellness breaks, a functional Tasting Bar, and food science lessons.
Two stages on the show floor hosted industry experts discussing various topics, from organic certification to regulatory compliance and pet health.
"For more than 25 years, SupplySide has provided the outlet for global leaders, manufacturers in food & beverage, and ingredient suppliers in health goods, to come together to discover innovations in nutrition, healthy living and wellness, as we continue to broaden the holistic understanding of supplements and wholesome product offerings," says Danica Cullins, Senior Vice President, SupplySide at Informa Markets.
As part of Informa's FasterForward commitment to carbon neutrality by 2025, SupplySide West addressed its environmental impact by reducing carbon emissions and material waste. Initiatives include:
