Marking the 16th edition of PCD, the 14th edition of ADF, and the inaugural edition of PLD! - ADF&PCD and PLD Paris

Marking the 16th edition of PCD, the 14th edition of ADF, and the inaugural edition of PLD!

2020 is set to be a key diary date in perfume, cosmetics, and aerosol calendars for several reasons.

The PCD event marks its 16th year, while ADF celebrates its 14th anniversary. And this year, we introduce PLD to the family, making for an even more comprehensive and lively two days in Paris Porte de Versailles on 29th and 30th January.

ADF&PCD and PLD Paris remains the sector’s key event, as it guarantees that you will not only meet the biggest number of buyers in the perfume and cosmetics sector, but also in the pharmaceutical, food, wine and spirits, and automotive sectors, among others. The addition of PLD only adds further weight to our cross-sector mission statement.

The event offers a joined-up view of the packaging sector, and we aspire to initiate all-industry dialogue on many of the long-standing and emerging challenges facing multi-functional brand teams. ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2020 will serve as a forum for truly ground-breaking ideas.

The show floor is also organised to allow cross-pollination between ADF&PCD and PLD exhibitors. Suppliers that work across multiple verticals are housed in a central avenue that connects all zones.

An exclusive gallery of winners of the Pentawards will also showcase the very best of 2019 entries from across the full spread of the packaging world.

ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2020 is the first time in which the conference agenda has been developed in close partnership with an official Advisory Board, comprising senior people from across the industry. It includes experts from many of the biggest names in cosmetics, drinks and personal care, representing brands such as Beiersdorf, Coty, Diageo, Edrington, Interparfums, Kao, Unilever and many more.

A few things to remember before the event

  • ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2020 is a unique concept that groups together three highly synergistic events. Still in pole position after all these years, the first packaging event of 2020 is indisputably the global professional reference event on innovation in packaging, aerosols and dispensing systems.
  • Every year it brings together players in the perfume and cosmetics sector, but also in the pharmaceutical, food, wine and spirits, and much more. This is a real chance for cross-sector pollination, for the whole team!
  • Each of the trade shows features new exhibitors and industry leaders: this year, over 700 suppliers in total are confirmed.
  • This year, a great focus will be put on hot industry topics such as sustainability and Brexit.
