New experiential features to inspire visitors include art exhibition, mixology sessions and Perfume & Olfactory workshops.


ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2020, the dedicated event for the aerosol, dispensing, perfume, luxury drinks and cosmetic packaging community, has revealed a range of new experiential features to inspire visitors.

 

Full teams of packaging decision-makers from the biggest brands in beauty, drinks and FMCG are set to attend, including Unilever, Chanel, Beiersdorf, Clarins, L’Oréal, LVMH, Johnson & Johnson, Parfums Christian Dior, Remy Cointreau and Pernod Ricard.

 

The brands will send marketing, design, procurement and packaging development professionals to the 2020 event, which has been designed to encourage collaboration across different job functions, source new products and suppliers, and gain new knowledge about various markets.

 

An abundance of new features and personal touches have been introduced to ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2020. A new Art Trail will showcase the work of a number of artists from the Paris region, creating an environment that will stimulate discussion around new approaches to creative and striking visual design. 

 

Each day, an Olfactory Workshop will be held on the PLD Cocktail Bar, in partnership with the Fragrance Foundation France and scent business Cinquième Sens. The workshop will guide visitors through a comparison of scents and experiences from different spirits and perfumes. The workshop will help visitors gain a deeper understanding of the products they package, and highlights the shared inspirations for product and packaging developers across the drinks and perfume markets.

There will also be mixology demonstrations each day and a signature PLD Cocktail for visitors to taste at the PLD Cocktail Bar, highlighting how packaging can be successfully displayed and experienced in the bar environment.

 

A series of new networking events are scheduled for the show, including gatherings for members of the Fragrance Foundation France and Ampac: the alumni association of leading packaging university ESIReims. In keeping with ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2020’s overarching theme, these events are intended to bring together packaging innovators across multiple sectors.

Josh Brooks, event director of ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2020 at Easyfairs, says: “This year’s event is shaping up to be our best yet, with an exciting range of opportunities for visitors to solve their packaging challenges and find new inspiration, whether they are involved in design, innovation or procurement. We are delighted to see the fantastic names signing up to visit across all the related sectors that ADF&PCD and PLD covers – and more than that, to see that there is real interest from packaging designers and innovators to learn about the challenges their counterparts in other sectors are facing, and the innovative solutions they are finding.”

 

 

 

And, as the show draws nearer, exhibitors are starting to reveal what they’ll be showing off at the event.

 

Bormioli Luigi: The luxury glassware manufacturer will roll out new innovations for its ECOLINE products, which reduce CO2 emissions by 70-80% compared to other glass manufacturing methods.

Essel Propack: The tube manufacturing giant is set to announce Project Liberty: a drive which will make certain packaging products in its oral care and beauty & cosmetics fully recyclable for its clients. This is set to be a world-first in the tube market.

Lindal Group: The aerosol heavyweight will launch two new actuator products: Olive, designed for use with cooking oils; and Teo, a universal design for antiperspirants and deodorants.

ELIPSO: The French trade organisation will outline findings from its annual circular economy report. This reveals that the number of companies in France whose sales have been adversely impacted by the anti-plastic climate has doubled year-on-year.

 

Josh Brooks concludes: “With initiatives like Essel Propack’s Project Liberty, and ELIPSO’s eye-opening report, you can count on our exhibitors shaping and engaging with the discourse across the entire packaging industry.

“We’ll be addressing the key issues around sustainability and circular economy, among many others, at the Talks running in each of our three themed conference theatres. Visitors will also be able to engage with the latest products designed to address these industry challenges at our interactive Innovation and Technology (ITT) Theatre. The 2020 event promises to be more educational, thought-provoking and engaging than ever.

 

ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2020 will bring together more than 700 packaging suppliers and 8,000 buyers in the perfume, cosmetics, premium drinks, aerosols and dispensing sectors. It takes place on Wednesday 29 and Thursday 30 January 2020, at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles.
