The event comes after William Reed, the publishers of NutraIngredients, and GOED announced a collaboration to expand the number of global touchpoints for the omega-3 community earlier this year.
Under the terms of the agreement, William Reed will become the “Headline Media Sponsor” for the biennial Omega-3 industry event, the GOED Exchange.
And in a similar deal to its successful partnership with the International Probiotics Association on the global Probiota series, William Reed will stage a NutraIngredients Omega-3 Summit, in association with GOED, during the off-years between GOED Exchanges in one of its global regions.
We can now confirm the first of which will take place in Singapore from February 20 to 22.
The region's leading probiotic and microbiome event — Probiota Asia — will get underway in Singapore this month with a stellar line-up of speakers, including the likes of Blackmores, Danone, Herbalife and Life-Space, set to take to the stage.
The event has already attracted a number of leading business professionals and academics to join the speaker line-up.

NutraIngredients-Asia Editor-in-Chief Gary Scattergood said: “We are very excited to announce that the first NutraIngredients Omega-3 Summit will take place in Singapore, the home of William Reed’s APAC HQ
“The first NutraIngredients Omega-3 Summit will bring the international omega-3 community to Asia-Pacific, and take the insights from the region to the world.
“The summit will tackle the biggest issues affecting the omega-3 industry globally, from the latest regulatory developments, product innovation, scientific research and consumer insights.
“We are looking forward to delivering a fantastic event alongside our friends at GOED and the calibre of speakers confirmed so far suggests this will be a must-attend event for anyone interested in the omega-3 sector.”
The event will take place at Singapore’s Hilton hotel, on Orchard Road, across three days. In addition to two days of lively debate, discussion and presentations, there will also be extensive networking opportunities and social events.
GOED Executive Director Ellen Schutt added: “GOED is excited to partner with NutraIngredients on the upcoming Omega-3 Summit. South East Asia is a growing market for omega-3s and we’re looking forward to being part of the first summit of its kind taking place in the region.”
