Pascaline GUILLEMOT, LVMHThis PCD Award is very gratifying because it underscores the work of the suppliers and the brand. The challenge with the « Flower in the air » perfume was to achieve this rendering on both sides of the top, by means of a heat-proof image on a film bonded thanks to the surlyn. PCD is an opportunity to exchange, I was very surprised to see all our partners were present. It is a wonderful initiative. The goal is to pinpoint market trends and discuss projects underway and future briefs with our partners. We are always on the lookout for technical solutions, so it is also interesting to scout for new partners to achieve our goals. It is an excellent format. I will come back next year with pleasure to look for new innovations.
Francis CHAUVEAU, Hermès‘We won a PCD award and peer recognition is the first step towards success. All our colleagues in the profession are present ! I have worked in the packaging sector for about ten years. This congress-exhibition is an opportunity to bring together a network of professionals, to show ideas and facilitate contacts. The quest for innovation will become increasingly decisive. We are deeply attached to high quality objects. Regulatory pressure on packaging will raise increasing numbers of technical problems, so it is the ideal time to bring the network together.’
