Easyfairs, the organiser of ADF&PCD and PLD Paris, the tradeshow dedicated to perfume, cosmetics and premium drinks packaging and aerosol and dispensing technology, today announced that the event will be postponed to 19 & 20 January 2022.

Originally scheduled for January, the event had already been postponed to June. The new postponement has been decided in consultation with the event’s stakeholders across the industry in response to the continuing uncertainties related to the Covid-19 pandemic.

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,” said Renan Joel, Divisional Director for Easyfairs UK & Global’s packaging events in the UK and France.

Digital Days and webinars

Despite the situation, 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 packaging developers, designers and suppliers an opportunity 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.

In addition, a new regular series of Innovation Talks webinars will launch in the spring.

The past year has been extremely challenging for everyone in the packaging supply chain and at Easyfairs we are very proud to work with an industry that has shown such resilience since the start of the pandemic; and has played such a crucial role at every stage of helping governments and society respond to Covid. While we are naturally sad to have to postpone the 2021 edition of ADF&PCD and PLD Paris, we are very excited to reunite the community in Paris in January 2022 and to building the future of this wonderful industry together,” added Renan Joel.
