ADF&PCD and PLD Paris postponed until 2022

Further concerns over the Covid-19 pandemic have seen ADF&PCD and PLD Paris postponed until 2022.

The show, organised by Easyfairs, had been set to go ahead from 22-23 June 2021 alongside supporting virtual events this week. 

But Easyfairs announced on Monday that the event will be moved to 19-20 January 2022, following consultation with stakeholders across the perfume, cosmetics and premium drinks packaging and aerosol industries. 

Easyfairs said the on-going ban on face-to-face events in France, combined with other restrictions and the continuing progression of the virus in the country, would have made organising an in-person event much more complicated in the short term.

Renan Joel, divisional director for Easyfairs UK & Global’s packaging events in the UK and France, said in a statement: "While we are saddened to have to postpone the event for a second time, our exhibitors, visitors and association partners have expressed their overwhelming support for the new dates - and for the crucial role that ADF&PCD and PLD Paris plays in creating connections and opportunities for everyone involved in packaging innovation in the markets it serves."

The ADF&PCD and PLD Digital Days will stil be taking place from 23-30 March, in a bid to continue connect people in industry and drive packaging innovation for the communities the event supports, both in France and internationally.

Alongside the Digital Days, ADF&PCD and PLD Paris has focused on strengthening its social media activities and now has the biggest following of any premium packaging-focused account on Instagram. It is also set to launch a regular series of 'Innovation Talks' webinars later in the spring.

Joel continued: "ADF&PCD and PLD Paris is committed to creating the best possible environment for our community to meet, solve its challenges and drive future innovations. I am excited that we are creating new channels to fulfil this mission and that we are seeing a great response from our community to the initiatives we have already launched.

"The past year has been extremely challenging for everyone in the packaging supply chain and at Easyfairs we are very proud to work with an industry that has shown such resilience since the start of the pandemic and has played such a crucial role at every stage of helping governments and society respond to Covid."
