PolyU to host The 5th Asia-Pacific Food Safety International Conference with IAFP in Hong Kong

Postponement Announcement

In light of the recent social unrest in Hong Kong, the Organizing Committee of the 5th Asia-Pacific Food Safety International Conference (APFSIC) would like to announce the postponement of the conference till 2020. The new dates will be announced in due course.

The protests in Hong Kong have been largely peaceful over the past few months; unfortunately, the situation has recently escalated posing more uncertainties for the conference. The Organizing Committee foresee that it will take time for the situation to resolve, and this difficult decision to postpone our event was made to ensure a safe and enjoyable food conference for all our speakers and participants from the region and worldwide.

The Organizing Committee of the APFSIC thank our Co-organizers, Supporters, Sponsors, Supporting Organizations, Media Partners, and all our friends for your immense support towards this conference so far, and express our sincere apologies towards the inconvenience caused under these unforeseen circumstances. The Organizers and conference secretariat will be in touch with our speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, registrants, and all stakeholders involved for proper follow up arrangements.

Thank you again for your understanding and support, and we look forward to seeing you at APFSIC 2020 in Asia’s World City. Please feel free to contact the following for any enquiry:
