Christelle Anya will lead the further development of the ADF & PCD (Aerosol & Dispensing Forum and Packaging Perfumes, Cosmetics & Design) events in Paris and New York, which were recently acquired by the Easyfairs group.
Christelle Anya was previously in charge of organising the two events under the guidance of previous owner Jean-Pierre Appert. In her new role, she assumes overall responsibility for the events including the awards and the conference programme. “She becomes the face of the event and will take ownership of all special partnerships and relationships with conference chairs, speakers, judges, VIPs and brands,” said Oriex Communication, the company organising the events.
Anya will work closely with Matt Benyon, Managing Director of Easyfairs UK & Global, as Directeur Général of Oriex. “I am excited to work with Christelle, who I have every confidence will continue to grow, improve and innovate the events so that they remain at the forefront of their industries. She is passionate and dedicated to ADF & PCD and has an excellent understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing the market that her events serve,” he said.
Following the success of the Paris event (6,500 attendees and 350 packaging suppliers in 2016), the focus is now on the inaugural event in New York taking place on 13 & 14 September 2016 at the Altman Building & Metropolitan Pavilion
