CMG to Meet With Industry Leaders at Expo West and The Arnold

CMG’s Dietary Supplement Division To Attend Both Major Events this Weekend to Meet with Leaders in Dietary Supplements and Health/Fitness/Bodybuilding Communities

CMG’s Dietary Supplement Division will be attending two of the supplement industry’s biggest events this weekend, as the firm travels to Anaheim for Natural Products Expo West and then to Columbus, Ohio for The Arnold Sports Festival 2015. Both events are expected to draw industry professionals and health/fitness enthusiasts from across the country – and provide an important opportunity to discuss some of the key issues facing the dietary supplement industry today.

Bob, who has recently joined the firm as Of Counsel, will be available at the Expo to provide industry professionals with important information about GMP compliance and other regulatory issues in light of the recent national focus on quality control in the supplement industry. With so many new developments in the dietary supplement industry — and with supplement companies facing continued legal scrutiny surrounding GMP compliance and other regulatory issues — Bob and the CMG team can discuss ways in which the firm may be able to help you prepare for what is expected to be a challenging time ahead in the dietary supplement industry.

For the past 13 years, CMG has played an active role in what has become the world’s largest multi-sport fitness weekend, and this year will continue to have an important presence at the event. Once again, CMG is proud to be sponsoring the Arnold Amateur Bodybuilding, Physique, Fitness, Figure and Bikini Competitions. In addition to sponsoring this popular event, Rick, Marc and David will be presenting trophies to the winners on the main expo stage. The Arnold Amateur features amateur competitors from the NPC and IFBB from around the world, and is a unique opportunity to earn a spot in one of the most prestigious professional bodybuilding shows in the world. Throughout the weekend at The Arnold, Rick, Marc and David will also be meeting with sports nutrition industry professionals at both the sports/bodybuilding competitions as well as the Arnold Fitness Expo.
