This year is again a turning for the upcoming edition of ADF&PCD Paris, which will be held on the 31st January and 1st February 2018 in a new, more spacious, highly functional area, the Hall 7 of the Porte de Versailles expo centre.
“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.
