New dates for the Micronutrient Forum 5th Global Conference and Second Global Summit on Food Fortification confirmed

March 13, 2020

Dear Global Conference and Global Summit on Food Fortification Community,

We are pleased to announce November 8 through 13, 2020 as the new dates for the Micronutrient Forum 5th Global Conference and November 8 and 9, 2020 as the new dates for the Second Global Summit on Food Fortification in Bangkok, Thailand.

Thank you for your understanding about our decision to postpone the March dates for the Conference and the Summit due to COVID-19. The decision was made for the health and safety of our community and having your support was important. Our thoughts continue to be with everyone affected by this pandemic.

Your registration is automatically transferred to these new dates and we look forward to seeing you in November. We plan to have the same strong programming for both events while the postponement may even allow us to make additions to the program, capturing new developments. Details about possible program shifts and additions will be available soon. If you are a speaker, or an oral or poster presenter for the Conference or Summit, you will be contacted within the next two weeks to reconfirm your availability for the new dates.

If you are not able to join us for these new dates, you may apply for a refund. (More information to come.)

We will be updating the Conference and Summit websites and our FAQs regularly. Reponses to your questions about registration, hotels or presentations will be posted here.

We look forward to welcoming you in Bangkok in November and remain committed to continuing to work with all of you who share our vision for a world without micronutrient malnutrition.
