A&WMA Event – Odour Management: Embracing Global Perspectives – May 14 – 16, 2024 Toronto, ON Canada

This conference, which will be held at the Sutton Place Hotel (formerly King Blue Hotel) in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on May 14-16, 2024, will cover a wide array of odour topics, including odour science, chemical forensics and source identification, field assessment methods, electronic sensing, sampling methods, policy and regulation, modeling, controls and mitigation, community impacts, and best practices. The conference builds off momentum gathered by the well-attended December 2022 odour webinar related to the international olfactory laboratory standard EN13725:2022.

In partnership with the Ontario Section of A&WMA, the two-day International Conference will be followed by a full day of discussions focused on Ontario specific odour and noise nuisance issues and land-use planning.

The conference seeks to distinguish itself as an international meeting ground for industry, municipalities, regulators, consultants, academics, vendors, and attorneys who are responsible for managing and communicating odour concerns. The second part of the conference, dealing with Ontario nuisances issues, will be of interest to many of the international attendees to understand how these issues are handled at a local level. The last day will also be important to attorneys, consultants, land-use planners, acoustic consultants, municipalities, and industry dealing with land use compatibility issues between emitters and sensitive uses.
