Who is this conference for?
The Budapest DROPS International Aromatherapy Conference, Workshop and Expo are for everybody who is interested in the magical world of aromatherapy and essential oils. The program was put together in a fashion that professionals and non-professionals can enjoy the lectures and workshops. Aromatherapy is a gentle yet effective complementary therapy/alternative medicine which is widely used by e. naturopaths, massage therapists, estheticians, in psychology, animal therapy, and pharmaceutical preparations but people make use of it in yoga and the sauna as well. Certainly, aromatherapy is present in our everyday life, homes and the family as well, where we can use this natural therapy not only as therapists and professionals but as only hobbyists as well.
What is the language of the conference?
The majority of the speakers will present their lectures in English but the only Hungarian speaking speaker's lecture will be translated by synchronized interpretation to English. Headsets will be provided at the reception table.
What comes with my ticket?
Besides the amazing lectures of the conference, the possibility of networking you receive a tote bag in which you will find the conference flyer, and samples and marketing materials from our sponsors and exhibitors – as usual with many other such conferences. Your ticket includes the refreshments and some snacks, coffee, and tea during the conference coffee breaks. If you wish something you do not find, the hotel café has a wide selection of drinks and snacks.
Can I buy books and publications of the speakers, can I get them dedicated?
