Tomorrow’s afternoon session takes a closer look at innovation with Georgie Bruinvels, Research Scientist at Orreco giving her thoughts on the physiological demands of female athletes.

The day’s second Panel Discussion gathers Karl Bickley, Head of Innovation, Glanbia Performance Nutrition, Ryan Page, Senior NPD Manager, Foodspring and Professor Morton to ask what it is consumers are looking for from today’s sports nutrition brands.

Do they care about science, is it all about convenience, is the future plant based? The panel’s aim is to sift through which trends are important and which ones aren’t (yet?).

The day rounds off with Melissa Snover Burton, CEO and Founder of Remedy Health & Nourished on the power of 3D Printing.

Nourished uses patented 3D printing technology and a vegan encapsulation formula to combine seven ingredients into one personalised nutrition gummy stack.

Melissa will expand upon how 3D printing technology, not only allows for scalable authentic customisation in real time, but also speeds up NPD processes to expand possibilities for innovation to a whole new level.

The stage is set for big industry names to fill the (virtual) room, and top-level speakers on the stage. With hours to go until the main event kicks off, reserve​your place, and become active in the fastest growing Sports Nutrition community out there!
