No, the Conference is not cancelled, but postponed and we are pleased to share the new dates: November 8 to 13, 2020.

Yes, the Summit was also postponed and will take place November 8 and 9, 2020.

The Micronutrient Forum 5th Global Conference will now take place on November 8 to 13, 2020 and the Second Global Summit on Food Fortification will now take place on November 8 and 9, 2020.

Because of some adjustments to the Conference Opening Ceremony, both events will start on Sunday, November 8.  The overlap in programming will be minimal.   More details will be provided closer to November.  Those attending the Summit should plan on an early-morning start at BITEC on November 8.

Yes, we are pleased that the Conference and the Summit will both be held at the original venue, BITEC in Bangkok, Thailand.

With respect to the 5th Global Conference, together with our Conference and Program Committees, the Local Organizing Committee worked hard to create a strong conference program with a regional focus. Keeping the Conference in Bangkok is allowing the Local Organizing Committee and the Southeast Asia nutrition and micronutrient communities to showcase regional program success.

All registrations will be automatically carried over to the new dates: November 8 to 13, 2020.

We look forward to hosting as many delegates as possible at the rescheduled event
