SHAPING THE FUTURE.

FROM ASIA TO THE WORLD.

The Conference will be held at the Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park Hotel, which is centrally located downtown at 199, Sukhumvit Soi 2, Klong Ton, Klong Toey, Bangkok.

We return to Asia to celebrate 47 years of IFEAT. Our annual gathering of the IFEAT community from across the global essential oils, flavour and fragrance industry is one of the most anticipated events of the year.

We have exclusive use of all event space within the hotel and access to 1300 bedrooms including suites, Conference areas, several restaurants, and bars – offering everything you would expect from a top hotel in Asia.

The Conference programme will consist of speaker presentations in the plenary on all four mornings from Monday to Thursday, a trade exhibition, workshops and roundtables. Additionally, the Conference will include private company meeting rooms, meeting tables and ample networking areas.

Bangkok has been chosen as the city to hold the Conference. Located in the heart of Asia with a population of over 11 million people, it is by far the biggest city in Thailand and is very cosmopolitan, with over 190 nationalities represented by almost 150 diplomatic missions. Pre-pandemic, Bangkok had 12 million visitors creating 30 million overnight hotel stays every year.

We shall enjoy the beauty and culture of Bangkok together with colleagues and friends, providing the opportunity to network and share our insights.

The theme for this year’s Conference is “Shaping the Future, from Asia to the World.”

Asia is the largest consumer in the world of essential oils and aroma products, so developments in this region are hugely important for our industry.

We shall discuss changing consumer behaviour in Asia as well as developments in agriculture across the region and how these will change the way we view naturals in the future. We look forward to presentations on the evolution, and future, of the F&F industry in China as well as listening to speakers from Australia and New Zealand on their markets.
