In light of the ongoing novel Coronavirus (COVID19) public health emergency, IPA World Congress + Probiota Americas has been postponed until November 16-18, 2020 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott Hotel, Washington DC.

IPA World Congress + Probiota Americas is the leading annual event for the prebiotic​, probiotic ​and the microbiota-​focused food and pharma industries in the Americas. The event is hosted by NutraIngredients-USA, a leading publication for William Reed Business Media.

“Our top priority is the health and safety of our sponsors, speakers, delegates, and staff,”​ said Stephen Daniells, PhD, Editor-in-Chief of NutraIngredients-USA and Editorial Consultant for Probiota Americas. “Following a consultation with our partners at the International Probiotics Association, we believe that this postponement is the best course of action at this time.

“We look forward to a time later this year when we can reconnect with the community and deliver a great program for all attendees.”

Daniells added that the editorial team at NutraIngredients-USA will continue to serve the market with the best and most timely information about how the coronavirus COVID-19 situation is impacting global supply chains and business operations.

George Paraskevakos, IPA’s Executive Director, commented: “Given the ongoing fluid situation, this is an important decision for the health and safety of the probiotics and prebiotics community. The IPA World Congress + Probiota Americas is a key fixture in the annual calendar, and by postponing until November we are confident that it will be able to showcase the best information for the probiotic, prebiotic, and microbiome-related industries.

“Until then, IPA will continue to be the Global Voice of Probiotics® during these challenging times and wish our members and industry friend’s good health.”

The program for the event, which can be found HERE​, features speakers covering topics including postbiotics, the changing retail landscape, microbes and the mitochondria, and fermented foods.
