Everything is shaping up extremely well. Once again, the event will be full. 478 exhibitors have confirmed their attendance, including 129 newcomers,” says Christelle Anya, ADF&PCD Event Director.

Furthermore, the organisers announce a strengthened program of plenary conferences, as well as several new events within the show:

- the Accelerator Zone, specifically dedicated to the start-ups selected on the strength of their innovations in terms of materials and/or substances, etc.
- the Innovation & Technology Theatre, a conference area at the heart of the event, open to all, where exhibitors will showcase their new products in an interactive manner.
- the Pentawards area, a permanent exhibition that travels around the world to present the most surprising, innovative packaging in the world.

The event will also be equipped with NFC+ technology. The attendees will thus be equipped with « smart badges » to collect digital information at exhibitor stands and receive a summary of their visit.

Eventually, as it is the case every year, the winners of the ADF&PCD Awards will be announced at the official ceremony - at the event - on the 31st January at 16h45 for ADF, and the 1st February at 14h for PCD.
