ADF postponed until 2022
ADF&PCD and PLD Paris, the event for perfume, cosmetics and premium drinks packaging and aerosol and dispensing technology, has announced that its next edition will be postponed from June 2021 to new dates of 19 & 20 January 2022.
In a letter to delegates, event director, Josh Brooks, said:
“The decision, made in consultation with the event’s many stakeholders, is a result of the many continuing restrictions relating to the pandemic including the ongoing ban on face-to-face events of all sizes and travel restrictions.
“These and the current progression of the virus in France, including the new lockdown imposed on Paris and other regions, have created a force majeure situation and it is not viable to organise the event in the short term.
“While we regret the need to postpone the event, we are encouraged that the decision has the support of our exhibitors and association partners, who recognise the crucial role that ADF&PCD and PLD Paris plays in creating connections and opportunities for everyone involved in packaging innovation.
“Although we are unable to meet up in June, ADF&PCD and PLD is as committed as ever to driving packaging innovation and business both in face-to-face events and in a digital environment.
“To support this commitment, we have strengthened our digital activities designed to help packaging specifiers discover the latest packaging products, connect with key suppliers, learn from the most influential thought leaders and celebrate the industry’s best work.
“We can’t wait to reunite the community in Paris in January 2022; and we are excited to connect with many of you before then. For now, I would like to thank our many partners among exhibitors, visitors, associations and media for their ongoing support for the event.”
