A Message From the President

I would like to begin this letter by thanking all our members. Especially, our board members, for their support and effort to achieve our objective, which is: to ensure our experiences and actions contribute to build the results we expect in our companies.

We started a new year with new expectations, challenges and great faith that this will be a better year than the previous one, it will all depend on our effort and dedication.

We are ready for the World Candle Congress being held in Puerto Rico, on April 4-8 at the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Beach Resort & Spa, you cannot miss this event which will be surrounded by a wonderful place full of beautiful nature.

A very fulfilling agenda with interesting activities for all our participants has been prepared, this congress will include relevant topics and beneficial workshops for our industry such as:

  1. Global Trends 2017
  2. Candle Combustion: How Does It Work?
  3. The Air Care Market, Fragrance Creation & Consumer Trends: The How & Why Revealed
  4. The Effects Broadening the Base of the Flame Can Have on Burn Performance
  5. The Increasing regulatory world for candles
  6. Stabilizer Technologies and their Functionality in Candle Formulations
  7. Trends and Issues in Candle Exports from India to the Rest of the World
  8. Thermoformed Candle Packaging

In addition, the golf tournament will be held again, for all the aficionados to this sport.

It is very rewarding to know that we will be launching a new project “The LUMINARIA Project” which will consist on providing “Casa Cuna de San Juan,” an adoption center for mistreated or abandoned children, with a donation collected from all our members through our registration fees and voluntary gifts. Thanks to your participation ALAFAVE & NCA will build a solidary and indelible contribution. This noble gesture will support the needs of the children from Casa Cuna.

At last but not least, I would like to mention that I’m excited because we will meet and again spend time for a week. We will continue to learn from each other, exchange ideas and experiences, but most importantly, we will be gathered and enlighten by the light of the candles, together, as a family. My warmest regards, we’ll see you soon in Puerto Rico!
