XVIII Latin American Candle Manufacturers Congress and Suppliers Tradeshow

Date: May 14-16, 2024
Hotel: Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen, Mexico

In 2024, ALAFAVE commemorates its 25th anniversary, and we plan to celebrate by organizing an unforgettable congress. Throughout the last years, we have strived to foster close bonds among our candle manufacturers and supplier members, and today, we can proudly say that we have succeeded in building a great family.

It is our intention to continue strengthening our industry, by creating business opportunities and alliances among its members, providing educational and technical programs technical, that promote innovation, safety and growth to add value and progress to the society to which it belongs.

Sustainability  and Artificial Intelligence will be our big themes on our agenda. For both, we will offer a master class and a workshop that provide practical ideas to position our companies at the forefront of these important contemporary themes. Last but not least, our program will include the anticipated “consultation” session with Dr. Vela. Participants can present any technical, manufacturing, marketing questions to an industry experts forum.

Due to the success of the previous congress, we are again holding the EXPO- Suppliers Tradeshow on two days.  Additionally, as customary, we will have our traditional Welcoming Cocktail and Closing Dinner Party to further strengthen the bonds that unite our community.

ALAFAVE 2024 Congress & EXPO is a unique opportunity to learn, connect, and grow your company. We look forward to welcoming you!

Who is it for?

Owners of companies, general managers, production managers, commercial advisors, or personnel with managerial responsibilities within candle factories.
