Dietary Supplements Division Travels to Las Vegas for One of the Biggest and Most Prestigious Bodybuilding and Fitness Events in the Country

The annual Mr. Olympia Fitness and Performance Weekend is about to kick off in Las Vegas … and CGMB’s Dietary Supplements Division will once again be part of what is known as one of the industry’s largest and most highly regarded events. Rick Collins, Alan Feldstein and Jay Manfre (who recently joined CGMB as an associate and is the newest member of the firm’s Dietary Supplements Division) will all be attending this year’s event, which last year featured more than 1,100 booths covering more than 500,000 square feet, and is expected to once again draw record crowds.

The Olympia, which takes place from September 14-17 at the Orleans Arena and LVCC in Las Vegas, is attended by industry leaders as well as national and international health, fitness and bodybuilding enthusiasts. The event will provide an opportunity for Rick (who serves as Counsel ot the IFBB Pro League), Alan and Jay to meet with both attendees and participants to discuss today’s timely legal issues surrounding dietary supplements and PEDs, and is a great opportunity to meet with those interested in learning more about supplements/PEDs and the law.

While Rick and Alan have attended the event on behalf of the firm for a number of years, this will be the first industry event that new associate Jay Manfre will be attending as part of the firm – although he has an extensive background in the health/fitness and bodybuilding arena. In addition to his knowledge of dietary supplement regulations and laws, Jay has more than twelve years of experience in weight training and bodybuilding competitions.

Throughout the event, Rick, Alan and Jay will be attending many of the various contests and 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. In addition, they will be visiting booths throughout the Expo to meet with attendees and learn more about the latest innovations in health, fitness and bodybuilding.

If you are planning to attend this year’s Olympia and would like to arrange to meet with us at any time during the event, please give our office a call at 516-294-0300 to set something up, or email Rick Collins at [email protected]. In addition, please seek us out to say hello at any time during the Olympia – we’d love to arrange a time to speak with you if you’d like, and answer any legal questions you may have surrounding PEDs and supplements.

Wishing the best of luck to all of the competitors at this year’s Olympia, and a safe trip to all those heading to Las Vegas this week – hope to see you there!
