ADF&PCD and PLD Paris has been postponed to January 2022.
The event, which combines the Aerosol and Dispensing Forum, the Packaging of Perfume, Cosmetics and Design, and the recently-added Packaging of Premium and Luxury Drinks, was originally scheduled to take place in Paris on 22 and 23 June this year. However, the event organiser, Easyfairs, has decided to postpone once again due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Easyfairs said the decision to move the event was taken in consultation with the event’s many stakeholders across the industry, in response to the continuing ‘force majeure’ situation relating to the pandemic. There is an ongoing ban on face-to-face events of all sizes and continuing restrictions in France, with the threat of a third wave on the horizon.
Renan Joel, divisional director for Easyfairs UK and Global’s packaging events in the UK and France, said: “We are saddened to have to postpone the event for a second time.
"Our exhibitors, visitors, and association partners have expressed their overwhelming support for the new dates – and for the crucial role that ADF&PCD and PLD Paris plays in creating connections and opportunities for everyone involved in packaging innovation in the markets it serves.”
This week, the first ADF&PCD and PLD Digital Days will take place, offering an opportunity for packaging developers, designers, and suppliers to learn about the latest thinking and opportunities in packaging innovation.
The ADF Digital Day will take place on 30 March and registration is open.
