Who will attend?
Academic and industry researchers, university lecturers, nutritionists, gastroenterologists and managers involved in technical sales, pig production and feed formulation from around the world will attend the 2018 symposium, which is being held in Australia for the first time.
What topics will be covered?
A wide variety of plenary speakers have been selected and are currently being contacted. Topics include the following (please note topics are still subject to change):
Session 1: GIT nutrient sensing and the enteroendocrine system
Session 2: Gut health and intestinal immunity (challenges to gut health)
Session 3: Rate and extent of ingredient digestion in the small intestine
Session 4: Metabolic diseases and brain activity/cognition (the value of pig as a model)
Session 5: Microbiome development and barrier function
What else will be happening at DPP2018?
In addition to the technical program, there will be social functions that will encourage and foster networking opportunities.
To attract international delegates, the symposium will be held in the centre of Australia’s premier tourist region and close to some of the world’s greatest natural attractions. We are encouraging delegates to combine the symposium with a holiday to explore the charm of the Australian country towns, the Gold Coast or the Sunshine Coast. All of this is within easy reach of Brisbane.
We encourage you to contact the symposium secretariat to discuss the best sponsorship package to meet your budget and needs. If you have specific requirements or desired outcomes linked to your sponsorship, we would be happy to tailor a package to suit your organisation.
