• The defining awards ceremony of the sports nutrition industry returns: ESSNawards 2020

    Today marks the launch of the second ESSNawards, following a hugely successful and well-attended inaugural awards ceremony, where the biggest and best from the sports nutrition industry across Europe gathered to celebrate the sector’s expansion and prosperity.

    Last year, over a hundred attendees, from fifteen different countries across the world, came together to celebrate twelve winners, beating over forty other sports nutrition brands who entered into the awards. This year, the ceremony will take place on Thursday 10 December in an exciting new venue and location: a global epicentre of prestigious sporting events, the Stade de France.

    Delivered by the Whitehouse Consultancy in partnership with ESSNA – a forum for discussion and a vehicle for action for the sports nutrition sector – the ESSNawards gives brands, organisations and ambassadors in the sports nutrition industry an opportunity to gain recognition for their impressive contributions to the sector. This year, four new categories have been added, including best protein bar, best energy drink and sports nutrition in lockdown, as well as a new cohort of judges, competitions, and sponsors.  A full list of categories can be found here and entry information can be found here.

    Given the ongoing pandemic and its implications on large events and travel, ESSNA will make a decision regarding whether the awards are to be held as a virtual event in July. For more information about the awards ceremony and how you can get involved, please visit www.essnawards.com.

    Supporting the ESSNawards provides businesses with the opportunity to enhance its profile, communicate to its target audience and interact with sports nutrition professionals including nutritionists, journalists, practitioners, and sportspeople.

  • Vitafoods Europe and ESSNA announce official partnership

     

    VFELandscape_EventDateVenue_RGB

    ESSNA will feature prominently at this year’s Vitafoods Europe, and has formed an official partnership with the organisers of the event.

    Vitafoods Europe, taking place between 9 and 11 May in Palexpo, Geneva is the global nutraceutical event. Since it first took place over 20 years ago it has grown in both size and stature, and is recognised as the place for anyone who wants to do business, source new ingredients and products, learn and network in the global nutraceutical industry.

    Sports nutrition has become an increasingly important focus at Vitafoods Europe. Last year saw the debut of a dedicated Sports Nutrition Zone, which proved immensely popular.  This year, for the first time, the Zone will include a Sports Nutrition Regulatory Advice Service organised in association with ESSNA – which will provide specific advice on sports nutrition supplements. Visitors to Vitafoods Europe can book an appointment for a one-on-one consultation with ESSNA now on the Vitafoods website.

    The partnership reflects the growth of sports nutrition as a category, as well as the growing demand for advice about regulation. Last year the EC decided that sports foods can be covered by General Foods Law provisions and that there was no need for specific EU sports nutrition regulation.  Dr Adam Carey, Chair of the European Specialist Sports Nutrition Alliance, will be examining the implications of that decision in a panel discussion on Vitafoods Centre Stage titled ‘A New Era of Innovation in Sports Nutrition’.

    Additionally, Stuart Shotton, Vice chair of ESSNA and Head of Nutrition and Regulatory Affairs at MyProtein, will present a session explaining how the EC’s report will affect nutrition businesses. He will explain the actions ESSNA took to guide EU-decision-makers along this long – and often winding – road, as well as looking ahead to what’s next for the sports nutrition industry.

    Visitors to Vitafoods Europe will also find a wealth of other information in the Sports Nutrition Zone. There will be opportunities to talk to experts, a Sampling Bar, Product Showcases, Infographics and iPad presentations.

    ESSNA members get a range of discounts on sponsorship and exhibition opportunities, as well as a discount on the paid-for section of Vitafoods, the Education Programme. For more information, please contact the ESSNA secretariat directly via Mayar.Raouf’@whitehouseconsulting.co.uk.
