With a pre-conference workshop, and eight sessions including “household & personal care” and “industrial & institutional” specialized tracks taking place over the course of three days, this agenda delivers a jam-packed schedule with insights and discussions focusing on the latest developments in fragrances, innovations in chemistry, sustainability, and everything in between! This year’s conference will kick off with a session devoted to Transparency and Opportunity: Navigating an Ever-changing Landscape followed by presentations on industry growth opportunities, and ending each day with an evening reception providing limitless opportunities for networking.

I believe that the agenda allows attendees, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors to all get the most out of their place at the conference, and to aid in pushing this industry in to the future. We are so excited to be able to continue to bring this event to the industry year after year!” For more information about the 2019 Cleaning Products US conference, click here.
