Dear candle industry colleague:
It is our pleasure to inform you that 208 participants represented ALAFAVE during the 6th World Candle Congress and Expo in Barcelona, Spain 2019. ALAFAVE was the Association with the greatest number of participants. Congratulations! And thank you for contributing to strengthening the Latin American candle industry.
We celebrated our general meeting during the congress, on April 30th, 2019. By unanimous vote, the general assembly participants decided that our next ALAFAVE congress 2020 should be hosted alongside a major tradeshow event in the USA during the months of late July or early August. The sites proposed were New York and Las Vegas.
Please take a moment to review the proposed hosting sites and vote on the city/tradeshow that you consider is the best choice. We’d love to get your feedback, your opinion matters to us; we want to bring you another successful ALAFAVE Congress.
