This year an expected 2,000+ senior players and decision-makers, from top 20 brands to independent startups, will be on hand at North America's only dedicated event for the aerosol, dispensing, perfume and cosmetic packaging industry.
The Aerosol & Dispensing Forum (ADF) and Packaging of Perfume, Cosmetics & Design (PCD) New York is a once-a-year, one-location opportunity for professionals from every corner of the industry to gain knowledge and solve problems. This is a forum for establishing relationships that bring teams together, improve product sourcing time and ultimately increase speed-to-market.
Visitors will access over 150 high-quality suppliers gathered in one place, to share their innovations and product launches. In the two days visitors can find new sources and solutions for their biggest challenges, making this event both efficient and effective for the busy professional. Expert insight from some of the biggest cosmetics and fragrance brands at the event's conferences will provide inspiration and help targeted teams across different business functions have a better understanding of how to work together.
Learning, sharing and networking are hallmarks of ADF&PCD New York, which is why these professionals find value in attending year after year. Packaging Managers and Directors have been strongly represented at ADF&PCD New York since its launch in 2016. Packaging is increasingly important for cosmetic products as it shapes the brand image, as well as consumers' perception. ADF&PCD New York's new program, The Future of Beauty Packaging Live, will give packaging professionals in attendance an opportunity to witness the industry’s latest technical innovations. The program will feature a mix of interactive conference sessions and exclusive private invitation-only workshops to create a live and exclusive vision of the future of packaging development.

Moreover, the rise of debates and concerns about sustainability and environmental issues caused by the over-use of plastic in packaging constitute an everyday challenge for packaging departments. ADF&PCD New York's EcoTour will guide attendees on visits to providers that offer specific eco-friendly and sustainable solutions and services. Procurement Directors and Decision-Makers attend ADF&PCD New York because they know they'll save time and money by connecting with colleagues from the prestigious personal care, cosmetic and perfume brands. Last year’s edition welcomed professionals from brands such as Reckitt Benckiser, Church & Dwight Co., Coty Inc., Estee Lauder and many others.
The event helps procurement specialists find the best solutions to their packaging challenges through its range of exhibitors, an extensive conference program, the EcoTour and diverse networking environments. Marketing, Brand, and Design Professionals attend ADF&PCD New York to learn from and connect with the superstars of the packaging industry. In 2018 these included prestigious brands such as Colgate Palmolive, Coach, PepsiCo and many others.
