– DSM, Euromonitor, NPIcenter and IMAGINutrition to Sponsor –
Providence, RI, January 28, 2003 – The launch of the Health Strategy Network (HSN) Conference Series, February 20-22, 2003 at Blue Mountain Resort in Ontario, promises to be exciting, relevant and insightful. HSN North America, designed for robust nutrition and natural products industry networking and unequalled knowledge sharing through the use of pertinent case study group discussions, has grabbed the attention of many key strategic decision makers. Health Strategy Consulting, the event host, expects to see representatives from Natrol, Nestlé and Cadbury Schweppes, who will provide insider insights on the business cases studied. In addition, representation from the following companies is anticipated: Bioriginal, Burrill, Forbes Medi-Tech, The Functional Food Revolution (author), Institut Rosell, International Nutrition Foundation, Inc., Inverness Medical Nutritionals Group, Kikkoman, Larex, McNeil, Mott's, Nutraceuticals World, Nutrition 21, Oakhill Capital, Ocean Nutrition Canada, Procter & Gamble, Pangenomics, Parmalat, PowerBar, Proliant and Striker Partners, among others.
“From those expressing interest in participation, it’s clear we’ve struck a chord with food and nutritional products companies, and now, with confirmation of Natrol for a business case study, interest from natural health products companies is strong, as well,” noted Tom Clough, managing director of Health Strategy Consulting (HSC). “In an intensely competitive market, the opportunity to learn from business cases and to network with leaders, newsmakers and visionaries, is invaluable.”
A total of four business cases will be presented over two days. Information about the conference, including registration details, can be found at: http://www.health-strategy.com/confseries.html. The North America Conference will be followed by a continuation of the series in Sydney, Australia in mid-summer and Tokyo, Japan in the fall.

DSM is active worldwide in life science products, performance materials and industrial chemicals. The group has annual sales of close to EUR 6 billion and employs about 20,000 people at more than 200 sites across the world. DSM ranks among the global leaders in many of its fields. The company’s strategic aim is to grow its sales – partly through acquisitions – to a level of approximately EUR 10 billion by 2005. By that time, at least 80% of sales should be generated by specialties, (i.e. advanced chemical and biotechnological products for the life science industry and performance materials). This strategy represents an acceleration of the company’s ongoing transformation and concentration on global leadership positions in high-added-value activities, characterized by high growth and more stable profit levels.
