Meet your business!
The Netherlands SEPAWA Section was founded in Amersfoort in 1997, on the initiative of the first president Raymond Vredevoort. A few years later, the association has been reshaped into SEPAWA Benelux. Since its inception, SEPAWA Benelux became the platform for people who are directly or indirectly involved in the detergents, cosmetics and perfume industry. And this may be seen in the broadest sense of the word. Public services or interest groups do also often participate in our activities.
SEPAWA Benelux organizes twice a year, a number of lectures. These lectures may be scientific in nature, but also often explain the ever changing legal framework of our sector. Marketing issues are also often the bid. These lectures have now become the meeting place for people from our industry. It is the ideal platform for networking and for maintaining contacts. We hope to meet you soon and welcome you at one of our activities.
