Rick Collins, Alan Feldstein and Jay Manfre to Attend the 2017 Mr. Olympia Fitness and Performance Weekend in Las Vegas

Collins Gann McCloskey & Barry will once again have an important presence at one of the biggest and most prestigious bodybuilding and fitness events in the country, when Rick Collins, Alan Feldstein and new firm associate Jay Manfre travel to Las Vegas for the annual Olympia Fitness and Performance Weekend. The 2017 Mr. Olympia Fitness and Performance Weekend will be held September 14-17, 2017 at the Orleans Arena and LVCC in Las Vegas, and each year is attended by industry leaders as well as national and international health, fitness and bodybuilding enthusiasts.

While at this year’s Mr. Olympia weekend, Rick (who serves as Counsel to the IFBB Pro League), Alan and Jay (who, in addition to being a new associate in the firm’s growing Dietary Supplements division, has twelve years of experience in weight training and bodybuilding competitions, and has been a consumer of dietary supplements since the age of 18) will be meeting with supplement companies and leaders in sports nutrition worldwide. In addition to meeting with industry leaders and health/fitness enthusiasts, the three will also be attending the event’s competitions and contests throughout the weekend, and exchanging ideas about the latest innovations in the health, fitness and dietary supplement industries by visiting the many booths throughout the Expo.

The annual Mr. Olympia Fitness and Performance Weekend remains one of the industry’s largest and most highly regarded events, with last year’s event featuring more than 1,100 booths covering more than 500,000 square feet. In addition to the Expo, the weekend features a number of top bodybuilding and fitness competitions, including Mr. Olympia, 212 Showdown, Fitness/Figure/Bikini Olympias, Men’s and Women’s Physique Showdowns, the Strongman Challenge, Olympic Weightlifting and a number of other events.

We wish all of the competitors at this year’s Mr. Olympia the best of luck, and are looking forward to seeing many of you in Las Vegas – please make sure to seek us out to say hello. If you would like to arrange to meet with us at any time throughout the weekend to discuss the latest information about dietary supplement law, FDA regulations in the supplement industry and issues surrounding GMP compliance, please give our office a call at 516-294-0300 to arrange something, or email Rick Collins at rcollins@supplementcounsel.com.
