ADF and PCD events have been held in Paris for over a decade, and now for the second year running this international trade show for aerosol, dispensing, perfume, and cosmetic packaging professionals is coming to the US, complete with exhibitors, awards, and a full conference program.

The show has become an industry staple in Europe and is on track to repeat that success here in the States. “As supporters of the ADF event in Paris for a decade, we knew that the format would translate well in the USA, and being in New York made it an even more convenient location for many brand owners,” ​Jo Jackson, corporate marketing and innovation manager at Colep says in an interview on the event site.

She goes on to note that “last year [she and her team] were able to not only meet...current global customers and suppliers in one place, making effective use of the transatlantic travel, but also to meet with some of the local US players.”

ADF&PCD takes place September 6 and 7 at The Altman Building & Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City. 


Innovation Awards will be given out in five categories on September 6 at 4:30pm during a ceremony lead by Paul Austin, a fragrance industry expert and founder of the Austin Advisory Group.

“We are delighted to be offering such a high caliber and compelling conference program this year,” says Anya.

There are separate programs for the Aerosol Dispensing Forum and for the Packaging of Perfume, Cosmetics & Design. The PCD sessions include topics like ‘Use LinkedIn to discover innovation’ with Pamella Seales, key account manager with that social networking service; ‘Tackling the sustainability challenge’, with a panel of experts; and ‘The challenges of packaging in eCommerce’, which is also a panel discussion.
