SCS Formulate – creating convenience

The latest SCS Formulate (15-16 November 2011) welcomed more visitors to see more exhibitors than ever before. And while sustainable ingredients continued to account for a large portion of new and/or heavily promoted products, exhibitors also showcased a variety of solutions to make the lives of cosmetic chemists that little bit less stressful

The latest SCS Formulate (15-16 November 2011) welcomed more visitors to see more exhibitors than ever before. So what’s the key to its success? SPC reports from the event

“SCS Formulate will always be a special event for me,” says Robin Parker, president of the SCS. “As a member of the original organising committee 13 years ago I would have been delighted if you’d said to me it would still be a regular annual event 12 years on, let alone growing its attendance figures from 500 to over 800. So to attend in 2011 as president of the SCS was a very exciting prospect and it didn’t disappoint. The whole event was extremely successful, more exhibitors than ever before, more visitors than ever and the quality of the Knowledge seminars this year was exceptional.”

There were indeed more visitors in 2011 (up to 847 from 835 in 2010) and also more exhibitors (up to 193 from 176 in 2010), growth which exhibition organiser Step says represents an increasing representation in the UK of international companies. And that means more to attract visitors from all areas, from students to experienced formulating chemists to senior executives.
