Garyth Stone,​ Managing Director at Houlihan Lokey,​ will provide his perspective on how the industry is evolving including how he defines the market, who is winning, who is losing, the impact of direct-to-consumer ecommerce and acute impact of COVID.

Three startup founders with a history in professional sports will offer their insights: Thomas Robson-Kanu,​ from The Turmeric Co., David Dunne​ from Hexus Performance and Dominic Day,​ from FourFive.

The event's key host Nick Morgan says: “I think it is quite a defining moment for sports nutrition. It feels there is a positive outlook post COVID as consumers are looking to be proactive towards exercise and nutrition.

"However, whilst there is obvious reward there is arguably never been more risk with brands struggling to navigate the extent of their permission in addition to industry challenges like whey protein prices, containers costs and others.

"And it is these real applied topics that we want to get stuck into in addition to broader discussions on key trends and opportunities in innovation. It is going to be an exciting event”.

In addition to the live shows, those registered for this year’s SANSE​ will also be able to download on-demand content.

The opportunities for networking will be plenty, with a one-to-one booking system which will allow you to schedule meetings with other attendees before, during and after the three-day event.
