Highlights from the Summit

Interviews at the Personalized Nutrition Innovation Summit

Why Attend

Hyperconnected and health focused consumers are switching their purchasing habits from a one-size-fits-all approach to personalized solutions, digital interfaces and on-demand manufacturing. As multi-omic testing advances, the role of biomarkers in predicting individual responses to diet has become clear. Alongside advances in AI and wearable technology, algorithms are being developed  to integrate multiple data streams and develop personalized recommendations. The nutrition industry is being shaken up with an increasing demand to cater for n=1.

The Personalized Nutrition Innovation Summit is dedicated to the innovators & disruptors in nutrition. From those capturing biological data to those developing personalized vitamins and AI-driven meal planning, we will be discussing how to develop scalable, trackable and attainable personalized nutrition solutions. Attend the summit to learn how to assess the current science behind personalized nutrition, the tools to strengthen recommendations and the steps to foster partnerships in this multidisciplinary ecosystem.

Talk to me about... my research:

Maintaining health and delaying disease onset result from complex interactions between genetic makeup, behavior, socioeconomic, and environmental factors.  Our multidisciplinary, international teams have been developing a more holistic approach to research summarized as systems nutrition. We use standard and emerging computational methods to integrate and analyze physiological data with measures of diet intake and physical activity while accounting for the built environment and genetic makeup.

Talk to me about… something people may not know about me:

I might qualify for the Tour de France but I would likely stop too often to take photos of scenery, competitors, and onlookers.

Become a Sponsor

Kisaco Research provides the much needed platform on which industry executives can network, connect and learn from each other as well as meet potential industry partners.

Far from the typical ‘meet-and-greet’ exhibition experience, you – as a sponsor or exhibitor – will be positioned as a partner of the event with a focus on the benefits of your product and brand, rather than just a name on an exhibition list.

With our extensive marketing experience and strategy, your partnership with Kisaco Research will grant you a sponsorship package that is an extension and enhancement of your current marketing and branding efforts. We value your ROI and will work with you directly on your specific goals and targets – that’s why we take special care in finding the most relevant end-users to attend, so that your financial and resource investment is smartly allocated.
