About ADF - ADF&PCD Paris

About ADF - Aerosol & Dispensing Forum

ADF was launched in 2007 alongside PCD.  The event filled a gap in the market where buyers demanded a unique platform to network and discover true innovation from this sector. Every major cosmetic and personal care brand headquartered in Paris was looking to get one step ahead of their competitor however it proved harder to do in reality. This event has grown into the only event where true innovation can be sourced in a matter of hours from hundreds of suppliers.

ADF is the only dedicated trade event which showcases the world’s most innovative aerosol and dispensing technologies. It has become highly likely for a lot of companies to say they ‘saw it first’ at an ADF event.

The Personal Care market is the main user of aerosol and more than 5.7 billion of the 16 billion units globally produced*, are made in Europe. ADF also attracts international visitors from industries such as household, pharmaceutical, automotive amongst others.

Not only is the event renown for it’s exhibitors but the free-to-attend conference provides rich insight into the minds of the industry’s most technical experts.

As a purchasing manager, I’ve been coming all over these years to the ADF exhibition, and I find this a really interesting exhibition. Unlike others this one is really very focused on the aerosol part os our business, and so for me, is the opportunity to see most of my suppliers and possibly also new candidates in the market.

So I would recommend everybody in the sector, if you want to know something about aerosol, come to next year’s ADF
