James Carville to Deliver SupplySide East Keynote Address

BALTIMORE - Virgo Publishing announced James Carville, political consultant and co-host of CNN's Crossfire, will deliver the keynote address at SupplySide East, May 6 at the Baltimore Convention Center. The keynote address is co-sponsored by Unigen Pharmaceuticals Inc. (www.unigenpharma.com), and Natural Products Industry INSIDER and HSR: Health Supplement Retailer magazines.

Known for his shoot-from-the-hip style, James Carville is one of the world's most insightful and entertaining political analysts. "The Ragin' Cajun" squares off against his conservative counterparts as co-host of CNN's popular debate program Crossfire. Largely responsible for President Clinton's White House victory in 1992, he became a household name with the release of the Academy Award-nominated documentary The War Room, a behind-the-scenes look at the campaign.

"We are so pleased to have James present the keynote," said Jon Benninger, director of business development at Virgo Publishing. "His razor-sharp wit will certainly add an interesting perspective to the presidential race."

Carville has managed more campaigns than any other political consultant in America and has consulted for British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Brazilian President Fernando Enrique Cardoso, Greek Prime Minister Constantine Mitsotakis and many others. Carville is also the best-selling author of five books including his latest Had Enough? A Handbook for Fighting Back.

SupplySide East will take place May 5 to 7, 2004, at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore. Information is available at www.supplysideshow.com or by calling Virgo Publishing at (480) 990-1101. Co-sponsorships for the keynote speaker are still available; contact Todd Willis at (480) 990-1101, ext. 1171 for details. SupplySide East, the trade show and conference for manufacturers, marketers and suppliers of healthy and natural products, is produced by Phoenix-based Virgo Publishing Inc., publisher of Natural Products Industry INSIDER and HSR: Health Supplement Retailer.
