Co-chairs include Steve Mister, CRN president and CEO; Scott Bass, partner and head, global life sciences, Sidley Austin LLP; Christine Burdick-Bell, executive vice president, general counsel and secretary, Pharmavite LLC; and Tara Falsani, general counsel, vice president and secretary, Nature’s Way.
“The industry is facing legal and regulatory challenges never seen before,” Mister said. “Between the unknowns of a new administration, prospects for DSHEA 2.0, the explosion of social media influencers, and a drive towards adopting sustainable and ethical business practices, every industry executive needs to be at this forum.”
The conference attracts both in-house and outside counsel, regulatory compliance personnel, quality control specialists, and government relations professionals. Attendees will learn how ever-changing industry regulations impact their company’s business decisions and how to develop long-term strategies for steering their companies through regulatory and legal challenges.
“This year’s speaker roster is stacked with top experts from industry, government, and academia,” Burdick-Bell said. “In addition to the main symposium, attendees have the opportunity to customize their learning experience through elective workshops.”
Day two of the conference features a claims substantiation working group session, during which attendees will take a closer look at the use of influencers while balancing FTC guidance, consumer feedback, and emerging forms of social media.
The final day of the conference will begin with a deep-dive into international legal and regulatory challenges and considerations. Attendees will learn to devise strategies that ensure cross-border commercial success, while complying with complex rules and regulations specific to individual countries.
