Presentation Proposal

We are looking for qualified Professional Speakers and Presenters for the 2022 HSCG Conference in Kansas City, MO. If you would like to be considered and have something to offer the handcrafted soap and cosmetic industry, we want to hear from you!

The HSCG Conference is the largest event for the handcrafted soap and cosmetic industry in the world and each year it gets bigger. We expect 600 attendees in 2022. The conference is 3 1/2 days of non-stop presentations and networking in both formal and informal settings. 

The Conference will be broken into three different tracks for attendees to follow:

  • Business Track
  • Maker Track
  • Advanced Track

To improve your chances of being selected to speak, we ask that you submit a topic pertinent to one of these tracks.

  • Business Track Topics - Wholesale, Marketing, Sales Strategies, Retail, Legal Compliance, Finance, etc.
  • Maker Track - Soapmaking, Cosmetic Making, Ingredients, Techniques, etc.
  • Advanced Track - Can be any of the above, geared toward more seasoned business owners and makers.

If you are applying to present a demo or a hands-on session, or teaching how to make a product, you must be HSCG Certified at least at the Basic level in the pertinent product track. You can now take your Certification test via Zoom; there are several dates available each month!
