The event, organised by the Health Products Association (HPA) China, and supported by NutraIngredients-Asia as its international media partner, takes place on June 19 at the Regal International East Asia Hotel in Shanghai.
The agenda boasts 12 expert speakers covering the latest in China's supplement and ingredient regulations, cross-border e-commerce, WeChat social media, use of KOLs, consumer trends, market environment, and import / export status, as well as updates on omega-3 and probiotics in the country.
The summit is sponsored by NSF International and TSI Group.

Attendees will be from both international and domestic dietary supplement and nutritional health ingredient manufacturers, so there will be ample opportunities to network and explore business opportunities.
The event takes place the day before the start of the HNC / HI China expo, which is also held in Shanghai.
HPA executive director Jeff Crowther said: "HNC / HI China Expo is one of the largest shows in China for finished health products and nutritional health ingredients. The combination of the summit and the expo give international visitors four days of unrivalled access to learn, share and network with Chinese industry experts and domestic and global leading brands, as well as conduct some market research and seek out potential partners."
