The Scancos Annual Conference

Searching trends for tomorrow
22nd – 23rd November at Radisson Blu Royal Viking Hotel

The Scandinavian Society of Cosmetic Chemists organizes every year a scientific conference which gathers together the most important R&D formulators, marketing people and other important decision makers from the cosmetic industry of the Nordic countries.

The 2018 conference will be held in Stockholm and the topic of the conference is "Searching trends for tomorrow". The conference venue is Radisson Blu Royal Viking Hotel.



These are the welcoming words of our Chairman:

Dear All,

We live today in a world that is changing like never before. New trends, either temporary or long-term, clever or foolish, are spread all over the world in an instant, thanks to internet and social media. Many of these trends are influencing cosmetic business – not only prestige brands, but also mass-market brands need to follow them in order to survive. During this SCANCOS annual conference, we will have a closer look into various trends, as we will explore some of the current ones and have also a glimpse in the nearest future.

We will also introduce a new activity – “speed dating” at the stands of the selected companies, which will be performed during coffee breaks. It is a proof that new trends are influencing also SCANCOS…  

I hope that you will join us this year in Stockholm.

Best regards,

Izabela Norin
Chairman of the Board
