GFS postponed to 2021

The IFRA Global Fragrance Summit has been postponed to 2021 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Scroll down for more details.

Summit postponed to 2021

Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, IFRA has decided to postpone the Global Fragrance Summit to 2021.

While we had hoped to reschedule the event for late 2020, the evolution of the pandemic means that it will not be possible to host the event in an appropriate way this year.

We are therefore postponing the event until the first half of 2021, on dates to be confirmed.

We look forward to seeing you in 2021!

Practical information



Existing registrations will be kept for the new event. We'll communicate a new date in due course.

About the Global Fragrance Summit

The Global Fragrance Summit is IFRA's annual meeting dedicated to discussing the political, economic, scientific and regulatory trends affecting our industry.

The 2021 event will follow IFRA’s two previous annual meetings in Barcelona and Paris.

The event showcases the value our industry adds throughout the fragrance value chain and the wider economy and society.

At the Global Fragrance Summit, a public, ‘big-picture’ Open Forum is the centrepiece of the event, alongside a regulatory-focused Knowledge Exchange.

The Global Fragrance Summit brings together IFRA members and upstream and downstream stakeholders, providing an opportunity to discuss, exchange ideas and network and enjoy the positive emotions we all derive from scent.
