The HMO opportunity, synbiotic mechanisms of action, phages, personalisation, and the gut-brain axis are just some of the topics to be explored at the 2023 event in Barcelona, Spain.

The three-day programme, which runs from 6-8 February, 2023, will also feature presentations and panel discussions from a range of stakeholders, including industry, academia, regulatory, market experts, and more!

"Copenhagen 2022 marked our return to in-person conferences and that sell-out event exceeded all expectations," ​said Stephen Daniells, Editor-in-Chief of NutraIngredients and Editorial Consultant for Probiota. "We're delighted to return to Barcelona with a superb programme and speakers. Our topics will continue to deepen some of the conversations we started in Copenhagen around postbiotics and the gut-brain axis, while we'll also be exploring new topics like phages, personalisation, and HMOs. I'm excited to share the content with our community."

George Paraskevakos, Executive Director of the International Probiotics Association, added: "Probiotics are a multi-billion dollar global industry that is impacting all aspects of our health and wellness. And we are seeing from the science that probiotics are only one tool in the wider microbiome modulation toolbox. It is important that industry, researchers, and regulators come together to keep up-to-date on all the advances and understand how to connect the dots, and that is exactly what this event does. IPA is delighted to co-locate our IPA World Congress with Probiota, Barcelona."​ 

Key themes for the 2023 conference include:

1. Prebiotics & Synbiotics

2. Continuing the Postbiotics conversation

3. The Phage opportunity 

4. Personalised microbiome modulation for health and wellness

5. The Gut-brain axis

6. Microbiome modulation for athletic performance
