Report from the conference

The fifth edition of the International Conference for Household Industry took place on 12 May 2015 in Warsaw.

The event was organized by the EPS Media (publisher of the magazine "Chemia i Biznes. Rynek Kosmetyczny i Chemii Gospodarczej). The conference brought together 165 participants, who listened 14 presentations on the most important issues in the field of the technology, raw materiale, laundry and washing technologies, hard surface cleaning and the market legislation.

Among the participants of the meeting were owners, CEOs, managing directors, marketing managers and sales representatives of the manufacturing and distribution companies, employees of the R & D departments and representatives of science.

It would not have been possible to carry out a project on this scale without the support of our Sponsors who were actively involved in the preparations. The list of Sponsors includes the following companies: Brenntag Polska, Dow Polska, Ciech Trading, Smurfit Kappa. The event was promoted by the Polish Association of Cosmetics and Home Care Product Producers, PMR company and Euromonitor International.

As usual, participants filled out an anonymous survey on the level of the conference organization and presented lectures. Assessment can be made on a scale 1-6 (note the higher the better). 84,2% of the respondents issued the rating 5 and 6 in relation to the organizational level. Almost three quarters of conference participants (71,9%) felt that the conference in terms of the level of substantive assessment deserved 5 and 6.

A list of possible subjects was proposed to be included in the scope of future editions of the conference: raw materials used in the Industrial & Institutional (I&I) Cleaning applications; formulations; ecological solutions; legislative issues / certification and solutions in the field of automotive chemicals, dishwashing products and air fresheners.
