NEW YORK, Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ScentWorld, LLC announced today that its fourth annual conference, ScentWorld 2013, reached a new record for industry participation, with a 35% increase in attendance over the prior ScentWorld. The global scent and sensory marketing event, which hosted world-class speakers, special guests and dignitaries, took place on February 6-8, at the Marriott Downtown in New York City.

Among the prominent public figures that attended ScentWorld 2013 were: Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, founding Fashion Director for New York's Lincoln Center and the creative inspiration behind New York's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week; Chandler Burr, author, Director and Curator of the Center of Olfactory Art at the Museum of Arts and Design; Catherine McVay Hughes, Chairperson of Manhattan Community Board 1; Gerald Ghislain of the world-renowned Histoires de Parfums; and Steven Claisse, Senior Perfumer at global fragrance house, Belmay.

"Global scent and sensory marketing is on the rise and we saw a significant increase in attendance and overall interest in the subject across a variety of industries and disciplines," said Caroline Pieper-Vogt, President of ScentWorld Events, LLC. "Our event offered conference attendees the opportunity to explore the latest trends and creative avenues in scent and sensory marketing and to network with professionals who came from many countries around the world."

"While we are pleased with this result, we view ScentWorld 2013 as only an early step in our continued support and increased visibility for the scent and sensory marketing industry and the increasing number of brands who use these powerful tools," Pieper-Vogt added.
