Hervé BOUIX, The Estée Lauder Companies

Hervé BOUIX “At the conferences, one is sure to learn something. The great advantage is to have all the suppliers at the same venue, where we can really talk and exchange with all our current suppliers over a 2 day period. In terms of international scope, there are 60 countries represented. For Estée Lauder, this is the year with the greatest number of representatives from the United States, so it is a real plus; it is a congress-exhibition that has become truly international.“

Simon ELMER, Procter & Gamble

Simon ELMER “I am here in Paris specially to come to this show. I saw a lot of people on the exhibition, and we talked about projects happening. I expect to come back next year and to follow conferences that were very interesting. I like the concept that brands like L’Oreal use this event to invite their suppliers to talk about technologies. It was interesting to get other point of view from colleagues and from the competitors. There is a real mixture of general and technical information. As a member for the first time at the PCD Awards, it was nice meeting people from the industry. We talked about last year launching and realized that in this industry there are great innovations in prestige packaging.“

Staffan SJOBER, Iggesund

Simon ELMER “In this exhibition, we have a lot of big brands. We are here to meet all our collaborators and customers in the cosmetics business. France and Germany are two big markets especially within prestige or luxury packaging. It’s very interesting to be here, to see what’s going on, on our sector. It’s very natural for us to be at PCD

Francis CHAUVEAU, Hermès

Francis CHAUVEAU “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. We won a PCD award and peer recognition is the first step towards success. All our colleagues in the profession are present !“

Arnaud MASTAIN, Dupont Packaging

Arnaud MASTAIN “We have been present since the first edition of PCD, which grows bigger by the year yet continues to retain its family, user-friendly spirit. Each year, this event features prominently in our schedule as we have the opportunity to meet our direct and indirect clients. Over the years, innovation units have sprung up among the various players, including Dupont de Nemours through its innovations. PCD thus enables us to showcase our innovations on our stand. We glean high-quality technical information and learn about market trends.PCD and ADF attract more people and offer synergies in terms of attendees. This conference-exhibition is becoming more international, in particular through the participation of emerging countries, which come to PCD to draw inspiration and acquire the technologies of the future.“

Michel Dupuis, Cojemial Conseils

Michel DupuisPCD is my favorite show; it highlights the dynamic nature of our French industrial fabric, showcasing our creativity! In terms of Awards, we rewarded technical products in very different fields, like hair products, perfume, make-up and the mass market, with small, innovative products. Innovating to enhance customer comfort and convenience is the only means of standing out on the market. Innovation is the way out of the crisis!“

Sandy Gregory, WestRock
