ADF&PCD New York, North and South America’s only dedicated event for the aerosol, dispensing, perfume and cosmetic packaging and design community, returns on September 5 & 6, 2018. The event, which takes place at the Altman Building & Metropolitan Pavilion, will include new networking opportunities, access to an additional conference plus a sizable expansion of the event’s networking hall floor.
The third edition of ADF&PCD New York will include special initiatives with the National Aerosol Association and the Household Consumer Products Association both of which are hosting member networking events within the show.
This year sees the launch of ‘ICON’- where the most influential decisionmakers from global perfume and cosmetics brands will gather to network, discuss packaging issues and share best practices. To attract more independent brands to the event, the organisers are working more closely with independent beauty brands and building special content that addresses the unique needs of smaller quantity buyers.
In terms of content enhancements, the world’s most prestigious packaging design awards - The Pentawards - are for the first time hosting a conference in the Americas at ADF&PCD New York. This design-focused conference will feature the best and brightest design minds from all over the globe including sessions lead by award-winning design agencies.
Alli McEntyre-Gaharan, Event Director of the ADF&PCD Portfolio, and her team are also introducing more international content to the New York edition through a series of new features - the Made in France & EcoTours. These will be special trails for visitors to follow to see exhibitors from ADF&PCD Paris – companies such as Actega Rhenacoat, Albea and Quadpack.
McEntyre-Gaharan again: “Paris is acknowledged as a key centre for the fashion, cosmetics and beauty industries and our Paris event is the world’s biggest packaging show. We’re tapping into that. By inviting companies from that event to take booths at ADF&PCD New York we’re giving our visitors an opportunity to also see some of Europe’s most innovative aerosol, dispensing, perfume and cosmetics packaging suppliers and designers, alongside of course, the very best talent working within the North American market. That’s a phenomenal mix - all under one roof.”
These international suppliers join a showfloor featuring over 150 world leading suppliers of packaging and aerosol innovations, such as Aerofil Technology Incorporated – ATI, Coster USA, Emerson, Lindal Group Holding GmbH, Parcome, Seram US, SGB Packaging Group Inc., Toyo & Deutsche Aerosol GmbH, Tri Pac, Inc., Zhejiang Changxing Hanghua Glass Co, Ltd.
ADF has a free-to-attend conference which will update attendees on the newest innovations and technologies in the aerosol and dispensing industry. The sessions and interactive workshops, which will allow attendees to enhance their skills and knowledge, will be hosted by a who’s who of industry pioneers.
The ADF&PCD Innovation Awards also return for 2018, in a bid to promote the increasing levels of innovation and creativity taking place within the industry. By celebrating and showcasing the latest and most cutting-edge designs and technologies, the Awards provide attendees with the perfect platform to see the innovations that are driving cosmetics, fragrance and aerosol design forward.
McEntyre-Gaharan concludes: “As you can see we’re committed to dialling up the content, business opportunities and buzz at ADF&PCD. Whatever your role, whether you’re C-suite decisionmaker, a packaging designer, engineer, brand or marketing manager, involved in R&D, business development or product innovation - make sure ADF&PCD New York 2018 is in your diary, it is not to be missed.”
