Representatives from L'Oreal, Procter & Gamble and Johnson & Johnson will speak at ADF&PCD and PLD Paris in January 2020. The event will see a total of 35 hours' worth of expert content from more than 80 speakers, covering technical and regulatory challenges in the aerosol and dispensing sector as well as keynote talks, panel discussions and technical workshops.
Sebastian Kraus, associate director of packaging development at KAO, will lead ADF's discussion on the 2020 outlook for aerosols and regulation. Marc Spiniella, plant manager at Johnson & Johnson, Frank Flecheux, director at LEREM and Jonathan Gawtrey, head of product category development at L'Oreal will all speak at the event.
The ADF Talks Theatre will also host a technology workshop on filling and formulation from Johannes Burghaus, section head at P&G, as well as a look at the potential impact of Brexit on supply chains from Patrick Heskins, chief executive at the British Aerosol Manufacturers' Association.
"The response to ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2020 has been overwhelming so far," said Josh Brooks, event director at Easyfairs. "There's an appetite for cross-sector pollination and this year's conference brings together viewpoints from across these three aligned market segments.
"We're incredibly grateful to our heavyweight advisory board, who have been instrumental in developing a programme that addresses the pain points of those working within the industry right now. They have also helped us bring the biggest names in packaging to share their expertise. Most importantly, I believe that this programme will help our visitors solve their packaging challenges and help drive innovation across the packaging business."
ADF&PCD and PLD Paris will take place at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles on 29 and 30 January 2020. It will bring together more than 700 packaging suppliers and 8,000 buyers in the perfume, cosmetics, aerosol and dispensing and premium drinks sectors.
