I’ve attended the HSMG Annual Conference for the past 5 years. Each year I am amazed at the depth of talent that we have access to as HSMG members (and guests to the conference). Over the years, I have learned so much about soapmaking, the business of soapmaking, ingredients, tradeshow marketing, etc… etc… The list just goes on.
Each year after attending one of the conferences, I come back energized and ready to go. Where else on the planet can you go and talk about soap and little else for days without everyone else tuning you out? Nowhere. For me the networking and sharing information is the most important part of attending the conference. We all have different perspectives on our craft, producing soaps that are unique to each of us.
I’m looking forward to the 2011 conference, because in my experience each conference just gets better and better. The hotels have been top notch, the meals fantastic, the entertainment amazing, and the awards night dinner is absolutely the pinnacle of the event.
If you haven’t attended one of the conferences yet, just talk to anyone who has attended. I’m sure their view of it will be as enthusiastic as mine. See you in Miami!
