The 10th edition of PCD will take place on Wednesday 5th & Thursday 6th February 2014!
Over 3000 participants from 56 countries attended the 9th edition of PCD (Packaging for Perfume, Cosmetics & Design), held on the 6th and 7th February 2013 at the Espace Champerret, in Paris. They took stock of innovations with the 170 suppliers of packaging, dispensing systems, services and technologies.
Everyone stressed the relaxed setting, the user-friendly scale of the exhibition and the high standard of discussions among experts, which foster the emergence of new projects and innovation for a global cosmetics market due to double in volume in the next 10 years.
Presentations on the 1st day took stock of bioplastics and renewable materials, market watch and patents for an innovation strategy, packaging innovations for beauty, care and make-up, the essential components of successful Brands.
Sessions on the 2nd day addressed metals and metallic appearances, magnets and magnetic systems, finishing and accessories, and presenting boxes. The session on the impact of ICTs (Information and Communication Technologies) on business practices, making companies more nimble, elicited keen interest among experts. A subject worth revisiting !
Holding PCD at the same time as Aerosol & Dispensing Forum was particularly appreciated by brands which use dispensing technologies.
The PCD Awards ceremony brilliantly underscored, through the technical presentations of Brand packaging managers, the intelligence, skills, creativity, technologies and know-how, collaboration with suppliers, and resourcefulness employed to meet Marketing requirements while respecting deadlines, quality constraints, sustainable development strategy and, of course, budgets !
For the 2014 Awards, proposals should be sent before the 14th November, 2013.
