The summit returns to bring together experts from the worlds of business and science to discuss the latest developments in prebiotics, probiotics and microbiome modulation for better human health.
With four broadcasts featuring high-level keynote presentations, engaging panel discussions and live Q&A segments, the event will take a deep dive into the business, science, research and trends behind the world’s fastest-growing region for probiotic and prebiotic sales.
NutraIngredients-Asia Editor-in-Chief, and Regional Head APAC at publisher William Reed, Gary Scattergood said: “Our Probiota Asia summit quickly became the must-attend event for brands, suppliers and researchers across the probiotic, prebiotic and microbiome modulation sectors since we first launched our conference in 2017.
“While we are unable to stage the summit face-to-face this year, we have compiled a world-class agenda for our digital version, and furthermore, registration is free.
“In addition, our 2021 summit includes new event features giving you more of an immersive digital experience where you will be able to network live with fellow delegates through 1-1 meetings with the help of AI matching, participate in group discussion, interact through live Q&A and polls, and visit our sponsor hubs.”
