We would like to confirm that registration for the Athens Conference is closed and we want to apologise to people who still wished to register.

Although the Athens Conference will host the second largest attendance in its history, we have reached the maximum capacity of our event location much earlier than we had ever in the past. This is very simply a consequence of the growing success of the IFEAT Conference and we have to learn our lesson for the future.

Unfortunately we cannot increase further the number of Delegates as this would seriously impact the IFEAT service standard our Delegates expect and deserve.

We are currently dealing with the registration waiting list and will make sure to accommodate extra registrations when cancellations allow.

We would like to kindly suggest that you do not travel to the Conference if you do not have a confirmed Delegate registration as you will not be permitted to enter the hotel and we would not want to cause any embarrassment either to you or to the Association by being refused entry.

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you at a future Conference.

Antonella Corleone, IFEAT Chair and Dominique Roques, Athens Conference Chairman.

Welcome to the 2017 IFEAT Athens Conference

I look forward to welcoming members and their partners to this beautiful, historical city with strong global links deriving from its shipping, finance, commerce, arts, culture and tourism sectors. This year, it will be a celebratory conference, as we mark 40 years since IFEAT’s inception in Kyoto in 1977; the theme will be “Celebrating 40 years of IFEAT”. There is much to celebrate, as our industry has flourished and IFEAT activities continue to expand. As part of the celebrations we shall be looking at “fragrances in antiquity”. The glorious era of Ancient Athens stands roughly halfway in the course of the 40 centuries of documented perfumery. With the unique smells of Greek origin such as labdanum or mastic, our conference will pay special tribute to the on-going discoveries around the fascinating richness of these ancient scents.
