AFD&PCD and PLD Paris 2022 postponed

ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2022 has been postponed due to the continuing impact of Covid-19 in Europe, its organiser has announced.

Easyfairs said that the event - for packaging innovators in the premium drinks, beauty, aerosols and dispensing systems market - would be postponed from its current dates in January to 29 and 30 June, 2022.

In announcing the postponement, Easyfairs said that tireless work behind the scenes meant the ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2022 event was shaping up to be the largest in its 21-year history.

But it said that, following consultations with key stakeholders, it had become clear that it would not be possible to hold the event in January as planned, due to renewed coronavirus restrictions to tackle the spread of the Omicron variant including the introduction of so-called "vaccine passports".

The rescheduled event will be held in the same venue as originally planned, Paris Expo Porte de Versailles.

Renan Joel, divisional director for Easyfairs' packaging events in the UK and France, said: "It is our mission to run fantastic events that connect the packaging innovation community, drive innovation and business, and give a truly inspiring vision of the future. We want to ensure that the next edition of ADF&PCD and PLD Paris does this, and moving the event to June dates will give the whole community the best chance of having the event it deserves.

"I would like to thank all the stakeholders in our event - exhibitors, associations, media and visitors - for their support for the change in dates. We can't wait to bring them all together in June and help them drive their innovations for the year to come."
