48 Hours left to Register online for the 29th IFSCC Congress

If you haven’t already registered for the 29th IFSCC Congress, you’re probably weighing the benefits of attending. But instead of listing all the genuine advantages that the Congress will offer – such as Networking opportunities with the global cosmetics community over the course of 3 ½ days, gaining industry insight from top experts during a number of Scientific Sessions, access to the latest technological advancements at the Technical Exhibition or exclusive entertainment provided by the Walt Disney World resort performers during exciting Social Events – it might be best to discover why some of your colleagues have decided to attend.

 art As at all the previous IFSCC scientific forums, this global Congress will give me a peer reviewed selection of the research in diverse disciplines that impact cosmetic science and the resultant products we deliver to our customers. However, attending the IFSCC Congress this year will be a special occasion for me bringing back memories of the 2004 Congress when I first joined the IFSCC Praesidium as a US SCC representative serving on the Publication Committee. In this surreal Disney setting I’ll be able to meet again many international colleagues I haven’t seen in years and renew friendships as well as network with new folks. This congress then will fulfill both my intellectual curiosity about industry scientific innovations and my personal needs for comradery.

 diane I am attending the IFSCC event in Orlando, FL and especially looking forward to the technical presentations, attending the exhibits and enjoying the camaraderie of fellow scientists from the world of personal care.  

The agenda is full and I am coordinating with my colleagues to have a strategy to be able to attend and learn from the wide range of engaging topics. The dual tracks creates a schedule  jam packed for three days, a great value considering the wide range of information available delivered from the scientists doing the work!

There are hundreds of posters on a wide range of topics and engaging opportunities for patented technology, up and coming scientist from academia and general topics impacting the world of personal care. The IFSCC team has done a great job of recruiting an exceptional team of scientist from around the world to provide an update on new technology and science impacting personal care

 jay I am a Distributor in Cosmetic Specialty Ingredients and I have decided to attend the 29th IFSCC Congress because it is undoubtedly one of the biggest networking opportunities. IFSCC is a worldwide platform showcasing latest innovation in cosmetic science and giving opportunities to explore new brands and innovative products. IFSCC will be a medium of direct marketing and provides the opportunity to meet industry potential buyers, innovators and formulators. It gives us that much-needed touch base on the global level spreading word of mouth for one’s own innovation and products. IFSCC will definitely lead our company one step closer to our destination. We reckon such influential events will further constitute a platform for SME’s to meet global industry leaders with more industry knowledge, latest technological innovation, understanding current market trends and consumer behavior in the cosmetic industry.
