“We have a record number of registrants for this year’s IPA World Congress + Probiota!” said George Paraskevakos, Executive Director of the International Probiotics Association. “The strength of interest clearly shows not only the excitement and opportunity there is for microbiome modulation to improve health, but notably the strength of our content and calibre of the speakers we have lined up for Barcelona.”
Stephen Daniells, Editor-in-Chief of NutraIngredients and Editorial Consultant for the event, added: “This event has sold out for a second year in a row. And Barcelona has also set a record for the number of abstract submissions for our Scientific Frontiers. The depth and breadth of the content, the quality of the speakers, and the togetherness of the community make this event a highlight of the annual conference calendar.”
The event program features presentations and panel discussions on a range of topics, including the phage opportunity, microbiome modulation for athletic performance, the science around HMOs, synbiotic mechanisms of action, the gut-brain axis, personalization, the regulatory landscape across Europe, and Live Biotherapeutics.
Experts from the University of California, San Diego, Abbott, the Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences, Wageningen University, Unilever, Yoba-for-Life, the University of Turku, Örebro University, the UK Department for International Trade, Synadiet - French Food Supplements Association, ADM, Cargill, Chr Hansen, IFF, King's College London, the University of Copenhagen, Lindenwood University, Teagasc Food Research Centre, Université de Montréal, Sandwalk Bioventures, FMCG Gurus, the International Probiotics Association, and Lumina Intelligence are just some of the confirmed speakers for the flagship event for the prebiotics, probiotics, and microbiome community.
