The organisers of the World Perfumery Congress (WPC) - a biennial exhibition and conference that covers the entire fragrance industry value chain - have announced that the event will return to North America in June, 2016.

From 13-15 June, perfumers, marketers of fragranced products, fragrance ingredient manufacturers, suppliers of fragrance materials and other fragrance industry professionals will gather at the Fontainebleau Resort, Miami Beach, Florida

The event, which attracted 1,100 professionals in 2014 in Deauville, France, will once again showcase the fragrance industry’s latest innovations and offer a series of conferences on fragrance technologies, fragrance creation, sustainability, regulations, and market trends. Event organisers, guided by the WPC advisory board (which includes representatives from the likes of P&G, Takasago and Bath & Body Works), are finalizing content for the 2016 show.

BASF SE, Givaudan, International Flavors & Fragrances (IFF), MANE, Robertet Inc. and Symrise AG are among the confirmed companies exhibiting.

WPC is the fragrance industry’s leading event, bringing together professionals from across the globe to one meeting place. The 2014 event in Deauville, France was hugely successful, and we’re excited to again bring WPC to the US in June [the 2012 event was held in Connecticut]. We pride ourselves on providing both exhibitors and attendees with an excellent opportunity to network and develop new relationships while discussing the future of fragrance,” says Sandy Chapin, Show Director, WPC 2016.
