Planned June event postponed to January 2022 amid ongoing short-term uncertainty relating to the pandemic; while activities to connect the community will be strengthened
Paris, 22 March 2021: Easyfairs, the organiser of ADF&PCD and PLD Paris, the world’s leading event for perfume, cosmetics and premium drinks packaging and aerosol and dispensing technology, today announces that the event will be postponed from 22 & 23 June 2021 to 19 & 20 January 2022.
The decision to move the dates of the event has been taken in consultation with the event’s many stakeholders across the industry in response to the continuing force majeure situation relating to the Coronavirus pandemic. Notably, the ongoing ban on face-to-face events of all sizes, the continuing restrictions relating to the pandemic, the current progression of the virus in France and elsewhere and the new lockdowns imposed in Paris and other French regions have made it impossible to organise the event in the short term.
Renan Joel, Divisional Director for Easyfairs UK & Global’s packaging events in the UK and France, states: “While we are saddened to have to postpone the event for a second time, our exhibitors, visitors and association partners have expressed their overwhelming support for the new dates – and for the crucial role that ADF&PCD and PLD Paris plays in creating connections and opportunities for everyone involved in packaging innovation in the markets it serves.”
While face-to-face events are not viable in the short term, ADF&PCD and PLD Paris is strengthening its activities to connect and drive packaging innovation for the communities it serves in the French and international beauty, luxury, drinks and aerosol industries.
This week, the first ADF&PCD and PLD Digital Days will take place, offering a unique opportunity for packaging developers, designers and suppliers to learn about the latest thinking and opportunities in packaging innovation. Speakers will include senior packaging experts from some of the world’s top brands in the beauty, drinks and FMCG markets as well as from the market’s most innovative suppliers. In addition, the shortlists for the 2021 edition of the ADF&PCD and PLD Innovations Awards will be announced. Full details are available at www.adfpcdparis.com/digital-days.
