ADF&PCD postponed until January 2022; Digital Days continue this week

Easyfairs, the organizer of ADF&PCD and PLD Paris, announced the show that was set for June will be postponed to Jan. 19–20, 2022. The firm cited ongoing short-term uncertainty relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The decision to move the dates of the event was made in consultation with the event’s many stakeholders across the industry in response to the continuing force majeure situation relating to the Coronavirus pandemic. Notably, the ongoing ban on face-to-face events of all sizes, the continuing restrictions relating to the pandemic, the current progression of the virus in France and elsewhere and new lockdowns imposed in Paris and other French regions have made it impossible to organize the event in the short-term, Easyfairs said.

“While we are saddened to have to postpone the event for a second time, our exhibitors, visitors and association partners have expressed their overwhelming support for the new dates—and for the crucial role that ADF&PCD and PLD Paris plays in creating connections and opportunities for everyone involved in packaging innovation in the markets it serves,” said Renan Joel, Divisional Director for Easyfairs UK & Global’s packaging events in the UK and France.
