Aerosol & Dispensing Forum, Paris Packaging Week a success

Written on: July 19, 2022 by SprayTM

The Aerosol & Dispensing Forum and Packaging of Perfume, Cosmetics & Design and Packaging of Premium & Luxury Drinks Paris (ADF&PCD and PLD Paris)—organized by Easyfairs—returned as Paris Packaging Week 2022. After more than two years of postponements, the event was finally held in late June as “two days of inspiration, networking, business and discovery.”

Approximately 6,912 visitors, and a total of 10,509 attendees, including personnel from 637 exhibitors, passed through the blue, magenta and yellow doors of Porte de Versailles to experience ADF, PCD & PLD at Paris Packaging Week. More than 100 exhibitors were first-timers.

Attendees were comprised of purchasing, packaging, design or marketing managers of more than 1,500 brands from the luxury, masstige or indie brand worlds. They came with the aims of finding answers to problems, sourcing new partners and identifying relevant product innovations.

“We are very pleased with the visitor and exhibitor figures,” said Paris Packaging Week Event Director Josh Brooks.

“The [COVID-19 pandemic] health situation suggested that there may be a drop in the number of participants, but this was not the case. Paris Packaging Week is back to the excellent figures of its 2020 edition, with an additional human dimension: the pleasure of finally meeting and being together. This is what struck me as I toured the show. The atmosphere was one of smiles, of positive energy, of the joy of being face to face again. It was the reunion our industry needed,” he said.

Winners of the ADF, PCD & PLD Innovation Awards were unveiled last April, but ceremonies were held in the presence of all participants at the event. See the April 2022 issue of SPRAY for a list of ADF Award winners. Full results of the Innovation Awards are available at

Student challenges also have a special place in the Paris Packaging Week program, according to Christelle Anya, Paris Packaging Week Content & Community Director.

“They are real springboards for future packaging influencers. They allow them to confront the demands of the profession and the views of very demanding decision-makers. We are proud of their commitment and happy to give them the visibility they deserve,” she said.
