Offering presentations and information on new products, research and industry forecasts, as well as an overview of the fragrance industry’s supply chain, the 3rd Annual Sustainable Fragrances conference will take place June 9–10, 2011 in Arlington, Virginia. Drawing presenters and attendees including suppliers, trade associations, brand owners, government entities and industry publications, the conference will cover ingredients, materials, marketing, and industry challenges and opportunities.
“The agenda for Sustainable Fragrances 2011 will provide insight from NGOs, the fragrance and personal care industries, and industry publications so that delegates leave with an understanding of all facets of this sector. There will be several interactive panel discussions allowing everyone in attendance to shape the conference,” said Christine Groff, conference director at IntertechPira, which puts on the Sustainable Fragrances event. “Last year’s conference attracted more than 100 professionals, and we are well on our way to building on that number. Sustainable Fragrances 2011 is the key place for the fragrance industry to meet this year.”
