The nutraceuticals market has experienced amazing growth in the past few years. Increasingly health-conscious consumers are opting for products that provide greater well-being at every level. The food, dietetics, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries recognise the growing demand for these products, and find differentiation factors among them that enable them to meet the demands of clients. The attractiveness of southern European countries regarding such products creates an ideal context for the best business environment at Nutraceuticals Europe Summit & Expo.
Nutraceuticals Europe Summit & Expo is the international event for the functional ingredients industry. The professional meeting point for producers, distributors and its customers will celebrate its second edition at a fairground in Madrid on 14-15 February next year.
Last February, around 2.000 professionals from 25 countries attended the first Nutraceuticals Europe Summit & Expo. The organisers easily expect to surpass those figures with the 2018 edition. The expo will receive more than 80 exhibiting companies. These will include Aker Biomarine, Alzchem, Anklam, Cambridge Commodities, Cosucra Group, Deretil Nature, Fenchem, Galenicum, Gelita, Healsee Capsules, IMCD, Kaneka Pharma Europe, Kitozyme, K-W Pfannenschmidt, Lonza, MB Med, Nutris Ingredients, Pharmactive Biotech Products, Pharmanager Group, Phytophar, Prosol, Sanmark and Shanghai Freemen Europe.
This portfolio of manufacturers is sure to be of interest to the vast number of food, pharma and cosmetics industries decision-makers that will attend the event.
Nutraceuticals Europe is the right place for companies to generate business; contact new costumers; identify new sales channels; gain the loyalty of customers; establish alliances for more competitive sales structures; meet agents, distributors and authorised intermediaries; reinforce relations; and organise working or training sessions.
In addition to the exhibition, the event's educational content will include three knowledge areas in which high-level industry professionals and scientists will be able to discuss the evolution of the sector. Among the wide range of themes to be explored, Professor Andreu Palou, Professor George Britton, Dr Sybille Buchwald-Werner and Professors Andrés Gavilán will address the following topics respectively:
The NTC Next conference, meanwhile, while provide a forum in which scientific developments may be discussed. In it, industry experts will present advances in R&D and the latest information from their studies, and consider how these will affect the development of new products.
In the seminar theatre, exhibitors - including Freemen, Lehvoss, Lonza, Metarom, Nutris and Prosol - will share the new releases that are driving their sales and promotional actions through a series of short presentations. The 'Premium Substances Area', meanwhile, provides a quick and easy way to identify new products.
