Next month Probiota will bring together top microbiome researchers and global leaders in business and to drive the industry forward into the new decade. After our sell-out 2019 edition in Copenhagen, demand is growing, but there is still time to register and join a host of top brands at the event.

Probiota 2020​ will combine the latest insights from science, regulation and business to provide delegates with the ultimate event to bridge the gap between the worlds of business and primary research.

Moving from a sell-out event​ with more than 400 people in the room for three days of learning and networking at our 2019 Copenhagen edition, the leading microbiome summit is relocating to Ireland for its next instalment as the congress continues to explore the frontiers of prebiotic, probiotic and microbiome science, and how that is applied in the commercial world for food, pharma and nutraceutical players everywhere.

With the full programme now finalised and available​, now is the perfect time to check out the world-class line up of speakers and events planned - and register before it's too late!

Major brands and industry players including Chobani, Danone,  L'Oreal, Yakult, Raisio Nutrition, Anlit, Bayer Consumer Care, Coca-Cola, Mondelēz, Biose Industries, Jamieson Wellness, STADA, Abbott, Solara Labs, Optibiotix, Walgreens Boots Alliance, Jarrow Formulas, Goerlich Pharma, SanProbi, Labomar, Altman, Klosterfrau, Biogaia, Merical, Caltech, Royal Canin and Muller are just some of the major brands and companies already confirmed to attend. Will you be joining them?
