Hilton’s first session includes a panel on “A New Era of Innovation in Sports Nutrition.”

Other panel members include Dr Adam Carey, Chair of the European Specialist Sports Nutrition Alliance, Albert McQuaid, Chief Innovation Officer of Kerry, and John Travis, Senior Research Scientist of NSF International.
Hilton’s second session, “Challenges and Opportunities in the Men’s Health Marketplace,” will examine sensitive topics within the men’s health marketplace.
Hilton will discuss how the needs of the modern male have led to increased pressure for performance.
As a result, there is an intense focus on products that result in increased energy, stamina, endurance and faster recovery.
Attendees of this session will leave with a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities related to this growing market. The presentation will take place on Wednesday 10 May at 17:05-17:35 at the Life Stages Theater.
