Postponement from January due to latest Coronavirus developments will bring beauty, premium drinks and aerosol packaging community together for a unique summer edition next year
London & Paris, 7 December 2021 – Global event organiser Easyfairs today announces that ADF&PCD and PLD Paris 2022, the world’s leading event for packaging innovators in the beauty, premium drinks, aerosols and dispensing systems markets, will be postponed from its current January 2022 dates to new dates of 29 & 30 June 2022.
For the past few months, the Easyfairs team has been working tirelessly with the event’s partners, exhibitors and the community as a whole to plan the upcoming edition of ADF&PCD and PLD Paris in January 2022; and the 2022 edition is shaping up to be the largest ever in the 21-year history of the event.
However, following the latest developments in the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, and after consultation with many of the key stakeholders in the event, it has become clear that it will be impossible to run a successful event in January.
Many countries are currently re-imposing restrictions as a result of the current wave of cases, while new cross-border travel restrictions are being implemented since the emergence of the Omicron variant in recent weeks. In addition, the French government has recently announced the requirement for a third dose of the vaccine for all adults to maintain their Covid passport (or Pass Sanitaire), with the new requirement coming into force on 15 January 2022, just days before the planned January dates of the event.
With around 50% of exhibitors and more than 30% of visitors to ADF&PCD and PLD Paris coming from outside of France, this combination of circumstances represents a force majeure situation with regards to the successful organisation of the event.
Easyfairs is confident that moving the dates to June is the best way to ensure a successful event that will continue to connect and inspire the full international community of packaging developers, designers and suppliers that it serves. The event will be held at the same venue as originally planned, Paris Expo Porte de Versailles.
Renan Joel, Divisional Director for Easyfairs’ packaging events in the UK and France, comments: “It is our mission 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.”
