On July 20 and 21 this year the IFSCC Ecaterina Merica Cosmetic Education Programme (EMCEP) visited Guatemala for 2 days of presentations. Our speakers were Dr Ricardo Diez (Canada) and Dr Luigi Rigano (Italy), both of whom are fluent Spanish speakers. 

The event was organised in association with the Asociación Centroamericana de Ciencías Cosméticas (ACACC) and was held at the Centro de Convenciones, Hotel Westin Camino Real in Guatemala City. A total of 50 people attended from Guatemala, Costa Rica and El Salvador, with attendees including both cosmetic professionals and students.

The event was supported by businesses from Guatemala, Colombia and México and was promoted by the American Chamber of Commerce in Guatemala.

“We wish to express our gratitude that our Association will benefit from the support of the Ecaterina Merica Academic Programme. We are also grateful for the financial support,” said Héctor Martínez, ACACC President, and Ana Regina Cruz Serré, ACACC Scientific Committee Coordinator. “The ACACC brings together cosmetic entrepreneurs in Guatemala and Central America as well as prestigious universities whose academic support helps this industry.”
