Following the success of this year’s edition, the XVIIth SIMPPAR promises to be under the best auspices for its first edition in Grasse, on Tuesday May 28 and Wednesday May 29, 2024.
Actually, we received many more demands than booth available and the exhibition is now quite full with many newcomers, both raw materiual producers and equipment manufacturerS (see the list of exhibitors on this site).
We remind you that this exhibition is reserved to professionals in the perfume industry and is not open to individuals, retailers or independents whose activity is not linked to Perfumery.
To allow participants to have time after the exhibition to visit the rose fields and distillers, the MIP – International Perfume Museum, or the companies in the Grasse area, the date has been brought forward by one day.
Post-exhibition visits will then take place on Thursday May 30 and Friday May 31.
