ADF&PCD and PLD Paris will be back on 20-21 January 2021, at the Porte de Versailles exposition centre. With this new edition, the organisers intend to initiate the recovery in 2021 in both business and packaging innovation for beauty, luxury, beverage and mass market products.

The event will take place within an unprecedented global economic context, and will play a crucial role in driving a new wave of packaging innovation in perfumes, cosmetics, premium drinks, aerosols and dispensing systems,” they said.

Across its three concomitant shows (Aerosol & Dispensing Forum, ADF, dedicated to promoting innovation in the aerosol and dispensing industry, Packaging of Perfume, Cosmetics & Design, PCD, a meeting place for innovation in cosmetic and perfume packaging, and Packaging of Premium & Luxury Drinks, PLD, launched in 2020 premium wine, spirits and soft drinks packaging), the event will feature several highlights, such as:

- A new gallery dedicated to the finalists of the PCD and ADF Innovation Awards as well as to the finalists of the newly-launched PLD Innovation Awards;
- Conferences focusing on the biggest packaging innovation challenges in the post-COVID era, with speakers from the biggest brands and market players;
- A strengthened partnership with the Pentawards, the world’s leading packaging design competition, to highlight the future of packaging design,
- Enhanced visibility in the run-up to the event as well as at the show of the innovations and new products presented by the exhibitors.

Of course, as the COVID pandemic requires, ADF&PCD and PLD Paris will be held in compliance with all safety, health and physical distancing measures: high hygiene standards, development of new health and safety protocols to meet today’s challenges.

"This next edition will be the first major event in 2021 for the packaging industry and promises an ambitious programme focused on driving innovation in all its forms in the post-Covid world. The health and safety of our staff, exhibitors and visitors is our top priority. The hygiene and safety measures we are putting in place in the spacious setting of Paris Expo Porte de Versailles will ensure that the industry can meet, do business and innovate together in the safest and most user-friendly possible environment,” said Josh Brooks, Event Director of ADF&PCD and PLD Paris.
