IFRA Global Fragrance Summit 2022: The Scent of Change

The IFRA Global Fragrance Summit - our annual flagship event dedicated to discussing sustainability, innovation and regulatory trends affecting our industry.

About Global Fragrance Summit 2022: The Scent of Change

The IFRA Global Fragrance Summit is the premier annual event to learn and discuss the latest trends in public policy, regulation, and sustainability impacting the fragrance value chain. Sustainability has become the number 1 shared goal between governments and business and regulation still sets the boundaries of fragrance creation and innovation.   In 2022, the Summit illuminates the latest developments in biodiversity, sustainability and innovation – and their business and policy relevance.  This year’s theme will be The Scent of Change: Biodiversity, Sustainability, and Innovation.


Who is attending?

Open to all, the IFRA Global Fragrance Summit brings together all actors in the fragrance value chain:   Regular IFRA members in multinational fragrance houses, National Member Associations, SMEs, upstream supplier companies, downstream consumer goods companies, partner associations, governments, media and stakeholders.


What’s on the program?

Under the theme of ‘The Scent of Change: biodiversity, sustainability and innovation’, the 2022 IFRA Global Fragrance Summit features top-level speakers from inside and outside the industry and actors in the fragrance value chain.

On Tuesday, November 8 we focus on how the latest global regulatory trends set the boundaries for fragrance creativity, and how IFRA’s programs and new alliances with customers and their associations advance the safe use of fragrance along the fragrance value chain.

On Wednesday, November 9 we investigate how the three priority themes of Biodiversity, Sustainability, and Innovation drive the scent of change in the world of fragrance.

On Thursday, November 10 we go back to basics in our virtual Masterclass on ‘Back to Fragrance Essentials’.

Additionally, we offer on demand sessions. On Demand sessions are previously recorded sessions due to time differences with other geographies. They can be viewed at the discretion of the participants.
