“A Light in the Gulf”, the National Candle Association’s (NCA) Annual Conference & Expo, takes place June 3-6 at the Naples Grande Beach Resort in Naples, FL. This premier industry event will host hundreds of candle industry manufacturers and suppliers.

“A Light in the Gulf” will feature a range of educational presentations, centered on propelling organizational growth and improving candle product performance. Experts will offer actionable strategies for leveraging the latest consumer trends, navigating technical claims, and mastering the employee recruitment process.
“Business success requires readily assessing the impact of industry developments,” says Kathy LaVanier, NCA President. “Acclimating to our ever-changing landscape can be challenging, and NCA’s Annual Conference provides the practical resources to get started.”
This year’s featured speakers include: Bruce Campbell, Founder and President, Wicks Unlimited; Janis Guadelli, Director of Trend Insights and Social Listening, Takasago; Mel Kleiman, Founder and President, Humetrics; Tyler McIntyre, Commercial Technology Manager, Sonneborn LLC; and Bonnie Schmidt, Director, ScentsAbility.
