June 10-12 2014 Perfumer & Flavorist organized the bi-annual congress in Deauville (France) - WPC2014 (World Perfumery Congress).
We agree with the summary of the organizers:"Such a dynamic success! Fueled by more than 1,100 participants,
80+ exhibitors, and industry-leading speakers and presenters, this was a one-of-a-kind fragrance industry event. It truly was an educational and networking forum uniting fragrance industry professionals, their suppliers and brand marketers to discuss current and future opportunities."
For me personally the days in Deauville were inspiring. I attended interesting presentations, was able to catch up with many perfumers and professionals and discovered new technologies & materials.
And besides, my early morning runs at the Deauville beach were energizing!
I had the honour to participate in the panel of industry experts on the topic "Growth Opportunities and Innovation in Fragrances". We formed a great team:
- Emmanuelle Moeglin (Mintel),
- Ruth Sutcliffe (COTY),
- Anne-Sophie Dussert (Clarins),
- Tanja Deurloo (Annindriya),
- Jeb Gleason (P&F).
Save the date in 2016 ;-)
