Vitafoods Asia will return 23-26 November 2021

Update from May 5, 2021

We have 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 we believe that this will benefit the industry and put us in the best possible position to run an in-person event in Asia in 2021. Vitafoods understands how important it is for our industry to stay connected, and we have spent the last 12 months developing our virtual offering to ensure our community has been able to network, meet existing and new business contacts, learn and share knowledge. These new dates provide us with the best chance to get back to what we do best, bringing the nutraceutical community together, and this year you will have more opportunities than ever with our new hybrid format for Vitafoods Asia.

The original dates meant that Vitafoods Europe and Asia were running back to back which was proving challenging for both our suppliers and exhibitors. We hope that by moving the event to Q4 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, we are looking forward to welcoming our community at the event in 2021.

Update from January 20, 2021

Vitafoods Asia returns in 2021 to continue to serve our fast-changing industry. Our usual in-person event in Singapore will this year run alongside our virtual event, hosted on our intuitive digital platform. Providing the flexibility to attend in whatever way works best for you.

As ever, exhibitors and visitors alike will be able to explore specific APAC markets. You'll discover the largest product development solutions, source suppliers and distributors, explore the latest industry insights and connect with APAC nutraceutical professionals. And this year, you'll do so in whatever way works best for you. 

Also new for 2021: our peer-to-peer matchmaking service, connecting you with pre-qualified buyers and distributors for secure, one-to-one chats. 

We thank our community for their ongoing support. Be sure to register your interest if you’d like to be the first to know when registration for Vitafoods Asia 2021 is opening. 

Update from July 28, 2020

Over recent weeks and months, we have been in constant discussions with key industry stakeholders and partners to stay informed of the challenges and complexities facing the health and nutrition community in the face of disruption due to COVID-19.

Vitafoods has made the difficult decision to postpone the in-person event Vitafoods Asia until September 2021. It was previously due to take place in Marina Bay Sands, Singapore on 24-25 November 2020.

This conclusion was not reached easily. However, with the health and safety of our community top of mind, as well as government and businesses restrictions on travel and gatherings, we made the proactive decision to act early, allowing our industry enough time to adjust their plans.

Vitafoods is developing its long-term vision on how to work with the industry in this new reality. We have agreed with our key stakeholders and partners to focus on other ways to support the industry in 2020, with a commitment that Vitafoods in-person events will return stronger than ever in 2021.

Responding to our communities needs to connect, collaborate and seek meaningful content in the Nutraceutical industry this year, Vitafoods has committed to hosting a new global digital experience that has not been seen before. This September we start the new reality for the future, at the Vitafoods Virtual Expo

We thank our community for the continued support and strive to shape our industry together for a sustainable future.

Update from June 3, 2020

Given the ongoing COVID-19 situation, and in consultation with key stakeholders across the health and nutrition community, Vitafoods has made the difficult decision to postpone Vitafoods Asia to 24-25 November 2020, at Sands Expo & Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.  We made the proactive decision to act now to allow our industry partners enough time to adjust their plans.

By shifting the event back in the calendar by two months, we are hopeful that we will see continued recovery allowing our community to confidently gather later in the year. 

Our parent company, Informa, has developed AllSecure, a set of enhanced standards and guidelines that provide the highest level of hygiene and safety at all Informa’s events. Vitafoods Asia will be organised in accordance with the AllSecure standard, providing visitors with reassurance they are participating in a safe and controlled environment.

The event in November will still take place at Sands Expo & Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore and all existing commitments remain in place.

We understand how important Vitafoods Asia is to the industry and how much effort goes into preparing for it and so, in this unprecedented situation, we want to thank our community for its understanding and support.

We look forward to coming together later in the year, allowing us to connect, do business, and continue to shape our industry together.

Update from February 26, 2020

Vitafoods is closely monitoring developments of the Novel Coronavirus, which first emerged from Wuhan, China, in December 2019. The health and safety of our colleagues and customers is always our top priority. As such, we are following all safety advice and precautions as recommended by local Departments of Health, as well as the World Health Organisation (WHO), seriously. Relatively few cases of Coronavirus have been found outside of China. Several countries have put in place screening measures at airports and points of entry, and the Chinese government has put in place measures to limit the spread of the virus within the country too. As such, for now, customers can be reassured that while we are monitoring the situation as an international business and staying up to date on official sources of updates and guidance from the government and authorities, Vitafoods Asia will take place on 23-24 September 2020.

With regards to our visitors

  • Travel from impacted areas within China is being restricted
  • Many international airports are screening visitors as they enter/leave the country

With regards to our exhibitors

  • Follow government guidance on travel
  • Follow local safety advice on the prevention of the spread of Coronavirus

All attendees are advised to:

  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Practice respiratory hygiene
  • Cover mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing with a tissue and immediately throw into a bin
  • Seek medical assistance if you develop any of the known symptoms

Please visit the official Singapore Ministry of Health website for additional information.

Thank you for your cooperation.
