World Perfumery Congress Location, Dates Selected

The American Society of Perfumers (ASP) and Perfumer & Flavorist (P&F) magazine announced the Contemporary Resort in Orlando, Florida, will be the location of World Perfumery Congress 2012 (WPC). Taking place June 11–14, 2012, WPC 2012, which was restructured based on a fragrance industry survey, will provide industry knowledge, supplier and customer relations, and event expertise along with customized education on ingredients, formulation and consumer insights for raw material suppliers, fragrance manufacturers and brand owners, and a dedicated supplier exposition featuring an integrated ingredient education program.

This location will provide an affordable, modern, internationally accessible event with the infrastructure to host a world-class meeting and exposition. In addition to WPC 2012’s educational and social events, the Contemporary Resort affords numerous amenities such as spas and golf, and access to numerous other activities.

“We thank the ASP for its consideration in selecting the Contemporary Resort,” says Jeb Gleason-Allured, editor of P&F and educational program director of WPC 2012. “This event’s traditional home in the south of France set the bar high, and I believe we have found a site where business and education can be conducted in a pleasant, sunny atmosphere.”

Additional location and program details will be announced soon. For more of the latest news, sign up for the WPC mailing list at
