INDUSTRY NEWS: 2019 Expo Nutrition Brazil cancelled.
One of the biggest expos that is organized in Brazil has been cancelled.
The organizers of the Expo Nutrition fair published a press release on their official website stating the reason why the expo was cancelled.
The expo was scheduled to take place at the end of September.
The organizers Savaget & Excalibur stated one of the main reasons for the cancellation of the expo was due to the financial crisis in the country.
Savaget & Excalibur are also the organizers of the Arnold Classic Brazil.
Another reason for the cancellation of the Expo Nutrition fair is reportedly related to one of their main sponsors.
Integralmedica was also one of the main sponsors of the 2019 Arnold Classic Brazil.
The worrying situation is if Integralmedica will also discontinue their relationship with the Arnold Classic Brazil organizers, Savaget & Excalibur in 2020.
Another important detail that could have led to this situation was that a fire at Integralmedica’s warehouse in July practically wiped out all their raw materials and products.
The fire at Integralmedica’s warehouse would have definitely put a heavy financial burden on the company.
The Expo Nutrition and the Arnold Classic Brazil collaborated with the IFBB until the split bertween the IFBB and NPC.Pro League at the end of 2017.
In 2018, the Arnold Classic Brazil was the last edition organized by the IFBB. The IFBB decided to end their relationship with organizers of the show.
In 2019, the organizers of the Arnold Classic Brazil decided to work with the NPC/Pro League.
With Savaget & Excalibur finding it very difficult to sell spaces to supplement companies and other vendors for their expo, the situation for the 2020 Arnold Classic Brazil looks very worrying.
At the time of publishing this article, questions sent to Integralmedica still have not been answered.
