Initiated in 1991 by the French Society of Perfumers, the SIMPPAR is a biennial professional exhibition, dedicated to the raw materials and services relating to the Fragrance Industry. We will celebrate its 30 years anniversary in 2021, for the XVth edition.
Nowadays, it’s the oldest and largest exhibition in Europe for these products.
This exhibition has an international thrust and though the largest number of exhibitors is French, the number of foreign exhibitors grows regularly.
It aims to give the perfumers and the people in charge of the purchase, the R&D, the marketing or the regulatory affairs, the possibility to discover new raw materials or news suppliers as well as meet with their usual suppliers.
The specificity of SIMPPAR is to propose the same booth fully equiped to all exhibitors, whether multinational or small producer, which significantly reduces the participation cost for 2 days exhibition.
With more than 2,000 visits in 2019, including about 200 perfumers, the number of professional visitors is strongly increasing, particularly international ones (43%).
Each SIMPPAR is also the opportunity for SFP to award its International Perfumer Prize to a young perfumer creator, followed by the traditional cocktail party.
Finally, this exhibition is well promoted and covered by the International Professional Press, which gives a good mediatisation to exhibitors.
