60th AESGP Annual Meeting

Celebrating 60 years of self-care

For 60 years, AESGP has been the voice of the European self-care industry. It was founded in Paris in 1964 by three visionary companies: Miles, Nicholas and Vick. At the time, “self-care” was synonymous with home remedies, and was even considered unnecessary. The founders of AESGP envisioned a dynamic and innovative sector of the life sciences industry that would enable people to play a greater role in their health and practise self-care.

60 years later, self-care is a well-defined concept recognised by the WHO and other international institutions. It has also become an integral part of health policy in Europe.

To mark our 60th anniversary, the AESGP Annual Meeting aims to bring together experts, policymakers, stakeholders and our members to reflect on the organisation’s milestones, but also to chart the way forward for the future of self-care, taking into account new trends and perspectives affecting the industry and beyond.

On the programme

  • Self-Care Gala in the iconic Bourse – Beurs of Brussels, to celebrate the milestones of AESGP and the contribution of our members and stakeholders to ensuring access to safe, effective and sustainable self-care for all in Europe. This elegant venue used to be Brussels’ Stock Exchange institution and is now home to a mix of public and private spaces honoring Belgium’s heritage such as the Belgian Beer World museum.
  • Thought-leadership sessions and technical workshops to delve into important topics for the self-care sector, such as the role of self-care in transforming health and social care, regulatory systems, sustainable packaging, climate change and its impact on health and self-care, AI in healthcare, and many more.

Please see the conference programme for more detailed information (last updated 4 June 2024).
