The Healthy Ageing APAC Summit has been rescheduled to July 2021 in light of the ongoing uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, but the topic will still take centre stage this year as part of a new interactive broadcast series - Growth Asia 2020 - launched today.

The Healthy Ageing APAC Summit, organised by FoodNavigator-Asia and NutraIngredients-Asia, had been due to take place in November.

But as the safety and well-being of our delegates, speakers and sponsors is our number one priority, we have decided move the event from to July 13-15, 2021.

The event will again take place at Singapore’s Hilton hotel, on Orchard Road.

Gary Scattergood, Editor-in-Chief of FoodNavigator-Asia and NutraIngredients-Asia and Regional Head: APAC at publisher William Reed, said: “We apologies for any inconvenience this may cause, but the safety of all participants is paramount. 

“In addition, the ongoing uncertainty around travel regulations is a considerable concern for our global participants, so we have taken the decision to act now.

“By rescheduling, we are confident we can deliver the calibre of event that our guest have come to expect, and I very much look forward to welcoming you all to the third Healthy Ageing APAC Summit in July 2021.”

Growth Asia 2020

In the meantime, FoodNavigator-Asia and NutraIngredients-Asia is delighted to announce the launch of the Growth Asia 2020 interactive broadcast series, to be held online this October and November.

Viewed through the prism of six core categories that are primed for exponential growth across the region (Healthy ageing, probiotics and prebiotics, plant-based innovation, infant nutrition, active nutrition and reformulation and fortification) we’ll be analysing the key new product development, market access, consumer engagement, research and innovation strategies for success.

The event will feature high-level video interviews, presentations and a live interactive video panel debate.

Gary added: "Asian countries are driving the global growth of food, beverage, nutraceutical and functional food sales - at a time when it has never been more important for businesses to better tap into new and expanding markets.  Across the region, the future growth potential is huge, as incomes continue to rise, urbanisation gathers pace, life expectancy increases and consumer demands rapidly evolve. 

"These factors will see regional food and beverage sales surge by more than 35% to $4.2tn the next four years alone, with APAC set to account for almost 40% of the total global market. For nutraceuticals and functional products, the sector is due to double to $135bn in Asia during the same period. 

"Our groundbreaking Growth Asia 2020 series will address how the industry b​est navigate the region’s highly diverse consumer, regulatory, cultural and economic landscape in order to reap these substantial rewards."
