Greetings! For our fifth major conference event, we are moving botanica2020 to mainland Europe and I would like to share with why I made this decision!
In my work as editor and educator, I have my fingers on the pulse of where aromatherapy is 'happening' around the world. For some years now I have become aware that there has been a surge in excellent clinical aromatherapy work, education and research in Southeastern Europe and surrounding regions. Yet, although this is a 'hotspot' for aromatherapy, many participants from these regions had difficulty attending previous Botanica events in the UK and Ireland. Additionally, no large international conference for clinical aromatherapy has been to date held in these areas!
When I started to look at possible conference locations, the beautiful country of Slovenia captured my attention and when I arrived in the lakeside town of Bled, nestled in the Julian Alps, I knew I had found the perfect location. So, be prepared to fall under the spell of Slovenia and be enchanted by the wonderful town of Bled in all its natural beauty.
I do hope you will join us for what will be an unforgettable conference experience and look forward to welcoming you personally, Rhiannon
