A Full Rundown of the 2018 Industry Leaders Summit

SFIA just wrapped up the 6th annual Industry Leaders Summit in Denver, bringing together the industry’s greatest leaders: executives, investors, experts and entrepreneurs for a packed 48 hours of networking, eye-opening presentations and thought-provoking panel discussions. 

Headlining this year’s event was the 3rd annual Start-Up Challenge, which hosted a profound new level of competition and variety, likely inspired by the new grand prize: A $15,000 check (provided by Black Lab Sports) and an all-expense-paid trip to spend a day with the Under Armour Innovation Team. With such high stakes, the room was packed to watch the young start-ups pitch their company to a panel of highly-regarded judges, which included President & CEO of Riddell, Dan Arment; CEO of Varsity Brands, Adam Blumenfeld; Founder & Managing Partner of KB Partners Venture Capital Firm, Keith Bank; heir to The Great Adi Dassler of adidas and Principal of ADvantage Sports Tech Fund, Alexander Bente; just to name a few… Click here for more.

The PHIT Act Faces Critical Moment of Opportunity to Pass: Contact Your Senators!

 
For the first time ever, the Personal Health Investment Today (PHIT) Act passed the U.S. House of Representatives on July 25, 2018. The bill now awaits a vote in the Senate. What can you do? Contact your Senators NOW. Tweet at them, email them, call them. Spread the message with your support of PHIT, using #PassPHIT. The Senate plans to pass a year-end tax package, which could include the PHIT Act - We must take advantage of this opportunity.

The PHIT Act has gained great positive momentum over the past few months, and it is critical that we exert all efforts to pass PHIT by the end of the year. In January, a new Congress will be seated, with new priorities, and the process of passing the PHIT Act will be forced to begin anew. To learn more about the PHIT Act and the current situation, read the full press release here.
 
 

SFIA & WFSGI Launch New Product Labeling Database

 

This service will provide constantly updated information on labeling and packaging laws and regulations in 49 countires around the world. An easy-to-use, extremely detailed database has been created by Compliance & Risks to help sports & fitness companies keep in compliance with national and local laws. Known as the WFSGI CLR Database, this online tool ensures companies avoid potential costly re-work, stop ships and product recalls, which ultimately result in lost revenue and brand damage. 


Users can search and report on up-to-date requirements by country and by product, as well as receive alerts of upcoming and new regulatory changes. To learn more about this one-stop-shop database for all compliance issues related to product & package labeling, click here. If you are interested in a free demo to learn more about the product, in an interactive setting, click here.
