Among the new features and personal touches that have been introduced to ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2020, a new Art Trail will showcase the work of a number of artists from the Paris region, with the aim to create an environment that will stimulate discussion around new approaches to creative and striking visual design.

Each day, an Olfactory Workshop will be held on the PLD Cocktail Bar, in partnership with the Fragrance Foundation France and scent business Cinquième Sens. The workshop will guide visitors through a comparison of scents and experiences from different spirits and perfumes. The workshop will help visitors gain a deeper understanding of the products they package, and highlights the shared inspirations for product and packaging developers across the drinks and perfume markets.

There will also be mixology demonstrations each day and a signature PLD Cocktail for visitors to taste at the PLD Cocktail Bar, highlighting how packaging can be successfully displayed and experienced in the bar environment.

A series of new networking events are scheduled for the show, including gatherings for members of the Fragrance Foundation France and Ampac: the alumni association of leading packaging university ESIReims. “In keeping with ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2020’s overarching theme, these events are intended to bring together packaging innovators across multiple sectors,” said the organizers.

Several exhibitors have already unveiled a part of what they will showcase at the event.

- Bormioli Luigi: The luxury glassware manufacturer will roll out new innovations for its ECOLINE.
- Essel Propack: The tube manufacturing specialist is set to announce Project Liberty, intended to make certain packaging solutions for the oral care, beauty and cosmetic markets fully recyclable.
- Lindal Group: The aerosol heavyweight will launch two new actuator products: Olive, designed for use with cooking oils; and Teo, a universal design for antiperspirants and deodorants.
- ELIPSO: The French trade organisation will outline findings from its annual circular economy report.

You can count on our exhibitors shaping and engaging with the discourse across the entire packaging industry. We’ll be addressing the key issues around sustainability and circular economy, among many others, at the Talks running in each of our three themed conference theatres. Visitors will also be able to engage with the latest products designed to address these industry challenges at our interactive Innovation and Technology (ITT) Theatre. The 2020 event promises to be more educational, thought-provoking and engaging than ever,” announced Josh Brooks, event director of ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2020 at Easyfairs.

ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2020 will bring together more than 700 packaging suppliers and expect to welcome 8,000 buyers in the perfume, cosmetics, premium drinks, aerosols and dispensing sectors.
