Informa has decided to push back Vitafoods Asia by 7 weeks to the end of November 2021. The event will continue as a hybrid event, with an in-person event – hosted at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Singapore, 24-25 November 2021 – and an accompanying virtual event, running in parallel from 23-26 November 2021.
The decision to move the event was not taken lightly but Informa believes that this will benefit the industry and put them in the best possible position to run an in-person event in Asia in 2021. Vitafoods has understood how important it is for the industry to stay connected, and Informa has spent the last 12 months developing their virtual offering to ensure their community has been able to network, meet existing and new business contacts, learn and share knowledge. These new dates provide them with the best chance to get back to what they do best, bringing the nutraceutical community together, and this year there will be more opportunities than ever with their new hybrid format for Vitafoods Asia.
The original dates meant that Vitafoods Europe and Asia were running back-to-back which was proved to be challenging for both their suppliers and exhibitors. They hope that by moving the event to the fourth quarter of 2021, everyone will be able to plan more effectively, and that Singapore and the APAC region will be in a more stable position in relation to COVID-19 and ready to open up to foreign visitors and allow a return of larger exhibitions.
While it continues to be a challenging year for all, Informa is looking forward to welcoming their community at the event in 2021.
