Weight Loss Frontiers 2004 - International Conference and Exposition (WLF-ICE) is the world's biggest international conference and exposition for obesity prevention and treatment, including food, drugs, devices, fitness, and combination therapies.

The weight-loss business is a booming industry. Americans spend an estimated $30 billion a year on all types of diet programs and products, including diet foods and drinks. With the number of bariatric procedures approaching 120,000 per year and America's obesity epidemic costing the healthcare system as much as $93 billion in annual medical bills, leading health plans and large employers are implementing innovative programs to manage health and obesity. Co-morbidity indirect costs including type 2 diabetes, hypertension, liver disease, heart disease, stroke, and cancer represent more than $80 billion alone.

We are pleased to present this conference and exposition to provide a forum for stakeholders, including food industries, pharmaceutical companies, and healthcare providers, to pool expertise and thereby stimulate research and development in this field. Furthermore, the participants will become better acquainted with existing markets for current products and be poised to exploit potential markets for future products.

We sincerely invite you to the Weight Loss Frontiers 2004 - International Conference and Exposition to feel the pulse of hi-tech trends and to view the prospects of weight loss industry development. Don't miss this exceptional opportunity to learn from a truly distinguished faculty and to network with colleagues and other stakeholders. We look forward to seeing you Sep. 23-24, 2004 in Washington DC!
