The US-China Health Products Association (USCHPA) will be hosting the annual China International Sports Nutrition Industry Summit — with sponsors GNC and Glanbia Nutritionals — in Shanghai on 6 September this year.

The all-day event will be held at the Regal International East Asia Hotel, where 11 industry experts will present on China’s consumer trends, regulations, cross-border e-commerce, fast-expanding fitness industry, newest ingredients and products, and overall market environment.

USCHPA executive director Jeff Crowther said, “China’s enthusiasm in sports and fitness has grown exponentially and as a result, interest in sports nutrition has also grown at approximately 20% per year. Although sports nutrition has been around in China for a couple of decades, it was mostly contained within the bodybuilding community.

“However, that is changing quickly as a result of increased access to foreign supplements through cross-border e-commerce and the fact that there are just more people interest in health and fitness.”

In addition to the summit, the USCHPA will partner with ReedSinopharm to host a free educational seminar to better inform attendees (including end users such as athletes, trainers, fitness enthusiasts, and distributors) ​of the products and ingredients often used by China’s athletes and fitness enthusiasts.

The seminar will take place at the FIBO China Expo Shanghai Convention & Exhibition Center of International Sourcing on 7 September, and companies such as GNC, TSI Group and Aker BioMarine are among the presenters.

Interested parties can email​ the USCHPA or visit the association’s website​.
