Why Attend?

ILSI’s mission is to provide science that improves human health and well-being and safeguards the environment. In this digital age, you may be asking – why should I attend ILSI’s 2018 Annual Meeting in Bermuda. The answer – Because there is no substitute for the in-person engagement that has come to define ILSI’s Annual Meeting! Join scientific colleagues from academia, government, industry and civil society for state-of-the-science symposia, keynote lectures, networking events, and ILSI branch meetings. The 2018 ILSI Annual Meeting in Bermuda provides you with:

Learning Opportunities
You will learn about the latest research in personalized nutrition, food and water safety, sustainability, and risk assessment. The scientific program at the Annual Meeting is relevant for all experts in the food safety and nutrition community. 

Networking  
Nothing beats the value of interacting with colleagues in-person. ILSI brings scientific thought leaders together from all sectors, allowing for face-to-face discussion and collaboration to solve and identify some of the biggest challenges facing the food safety and nutrition community. 

Perspective
Attending the ILSI Annual Meeting can help you take a step back and look at challenges in nutrition, food safety, and health through the viewpoint of colleagues that you don't engage with normally.

Leadership
By attending Annual Meeting you have the ability to draw attention to challenges that not everyone is aware of.  This is your chance to connect with other experts and take a leadership role while using the resources and network provided by the unique ILSI platform.
