Travel restriction easing adds another reason to attend Probiota

Related tags Probiota event content Unmetered

Thinking of attending this year’s Probiota in Copenhagen? NutraIngredients’ flagship event dedicated to the microbiome has been given a timely boost as the country is set to lift a raft of travel restrictions.

Starting from today, Denmark will allow entry​ for travellers worldwide, who have a valid proof of vaccination with a recognised vaccine. Those previously infected with COVID-19 can also enter the country.

“The temporary stricter requirements for pre-entry testing, introduced on December 27, are now being phased out,”​ the Danish Ministry announced in a statement last week.

“The previous general entry restrictions that were in force before the introduction of the tightened temporary entry restrictions will continue from Tuesday, February 1 and provisionally until February 28, 2022.”

Essentially travellers, regardless of their country of origin, can enter Denmark without needing to test or follow quarantine requirements as long as they have been fully vaccinated with one of the vaccines listed below.

Travellers, who don’t hold a valid vaccination certificate can also enter Denmark. However, certain entry rules still remain in place.

Denmark’s announcement is certainly great news for those interested in attending Probiota, back for 2022 as a F2F event, and recently rescheduled to take place on the 28-30 March.

Denmark’s Ministry of Health now accepts the following vaccines:

  • Pfizer/BioNTech
  • Moderna
  • AstraZeneca
  • Janssen
  • Novavax
  • Covishield
  • Covaxin
  • Sinovac
  • Sinopharm

As if you need more convincing, here are a few reasons as to why you must attend Probiota 2022, the must-attend event for the probiotics, prebiotics, and microbiome community, which begins on 28 March….

Content aplenty

Building on the success of previous years, this year continues in the same vein with a host of content-rich presentations, interviews and panel discussions involving key thought leaders.

The program​ for this year event touches on the themes you wanted to hear more about with topics to be discussed include new ingredient opportunities from postbiotics, synbiotics, HMOs, and bacteriophages.

The discussion extends to the microbiome’s influence on health endpoints like weight management and athletic performance and recovery, to the changing retail landscape, and the topic of the moment: Immunity.

Speaker line-up

Having great topics is only half of the story. Having the leading experts and brands in the world discuss them is just as important. This year the line-up​ includes Dr John Deaton​, VP Science and Technology at Deerland Probiotics & Enzymes, TargEDys’ Prof Pierre Déchelotte​, Adam Baker​, Director of Science, Human Health, Chr. Hansen and Bruno Pot​, Science Director Europe at Yakult Europe.

Seals of approval

Probiota spans the world of science and business, giving every attendee a higher-level view of the issues, while our experts aid in achieving an in-depth understanding of the topics. But don’t take our word for it though!

“I really liked the networking opportunities both at Kerry and Guinness (Probiota 2020). For me, the show is as much about meeting people as it is about the presentations.”  Jenna Nelson, UAS Labs.

“Very well organised, clear agenda with a really helpful booklet on each speaker and topic. Very helpful content from both a marketing and scientific perspective.” Sarah Ussher, Scope Eyecare

Scientific frontiers

A mainstay of the event for many years, our Scientific Frontiers​ showcase cutting edge microbiome science and innovations from researchers from academia and industry.

Thoroughly reviewed by our Scientific Committee, the breaking science is presented as posters, with the winning author providing a presentation live on stage as part of the 2022 Probiota programme.

Probiota Pioneers

As universities spin-out and license key discoveries, food and pharma firms open up venture funds and innovation programs and incubators draw in entrepreneurs – there are rich pickings for probiotic, prebiotic and microbiome pioneers. But how can you win in a competitive environment?

This year, Beo Therapeutics, Genbioma and Lactobio are our Probiota Pioneers for 2022. The pioneering trio​ will be joining us at Probiota in Copenhagen next month, where there will be plenty of opportunity to meet them at the Pioneers Hub in the networking area at the event.

Diverse & helpful community ​

Ever since its inception, the NutraIngredients team has seen the community grow to become the ​meeting point for all things microbiome related.

This year we’ve optimised the relationship-building opportunities for our delegates whether it's taking part in a roundtable discussion or utilising the built-in networking sessions.

Our sponsors are a big part of strengthening the connection with key stakeholders in the category so if you get the chance, introduce yourself to the likes of ADM, Chr Hansen, Deerland Probiotics and Enzymes, Epicor and Novozymes and forge those all-important connections.
