Dietary Supplements and Nutritionals are a huge multimillion dollar industry with a fragmented market share. The biggest players (mainly Consumer Health Care Divisions of major pharmaceutical companies) control 20% of the total share and are in a race to control even more through acquisitions and joint ventures, as they see continued growth in this area and are willing to invest huge sums of money in this pursuit. Moreover, the acquisition and development of these products will help to supplement the profits of these companies which are currently suffering from expiring patents and product pipeline shortages. Additionally, as the popularity of these products increase, government scrutiny by such agencies as FDA and FTC also increases for lack of claim substantiation and manufacturing violations. While there are various association events for the supplement industry, this will be the only one to address all legal and regulatory concerns in one neat package. This is why our inaugural conference in this space was so successful. This conference will offer a sense of community to participants leading to its status as a must attend event.

    I attended my first ACI conference in 2008. What I learn at these conferences has made me a better lawyer and saved my company and our clients an incredible amount of money. Beyond this, through ACI I have developed relationships with litigators who defend the nation’s largest financial institutions and dined with the judges and the regulators who are shaping our industry. I get to go to a lot of conferences. ACI is, hands down, my favorite series.

ACI does a nice job of getting excellent speakers from BOTH side of the table to discuss current issues. I have presented over the years, but not in consecutive years. ACI does a good job of rotating speakers and keeping it fresh!
