ADF&PCD Paris 2020, the dedicated event for the aerosol, dispensing, perfume, luxury cosmetic packaging community, has revealed the shortlist of packaging solutions participating in this year’s ADF and PCD Awards.
The awards are designed to single out the very best innovations across the aerosol, dispensing and beauty sectors. This year’s awards saw a wide range of entries across the 14 categories, the ‘Fragrances’ categories in the PCD Awards, in particular, were the most competitive yet.
The PCD Awards’ ‘Sustainability’ category proved so popular this year, the judging panel decided to split it into two separate awards: ‘Sustainable Development’ and ‘Onsite Refillable Devices’. This is testament to the growing sustainability conversation and action within the packaging community.
“The two main themes that stood out this year were sustainability and the originality and quality of the fragrance concepts presented. The quality of the products presented overall is quite remarkable. And the prestige market is no longer necessarily the only space where high-quality innovation is taking place,” highlighted Alain Béthune, jury co-president of the PCD Awards 2020.
This year’s awards ceremony is being hosted by television presenter Sandra Lou and will be held on the 29th January in the PCD conference room at 3:00pm.
“The ADF and PCD Awards presentation ceremony is always a highlight of the event. When we opened nominations in June we were inundated with entries, and the judging panel has been hugely impressed by the innovation on display and the quality of the submissions. A prevalent tech-led trend has been the growth of 3D printing. This featured in multiple categories with brands using it as a vehicle for personalisation at scale and also for premiumisation,” said Emma Appert, marketing leader for ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2020.
