Meet and be inspired by industry experts delivering insightful sessions on best practice case studies, trends, success stories, challenges faced and how they were overcome in the ADF Conference Theatre.

Technology transfer

ADF&PCD is a unique concept, gathering two shows with strong synergies.

As personal care represents 55.76%* of aerosols production, it is naturally a perfect fit with PCD. The show encourages the exploration of technology transfer between sectors. Just as the automotive sector benefits from the personal care sector, the food & beverage sector benefits from the household sector and healthcare benefits from the industrial sector, ADF visitors will also benefit from the exploration of cross-sector technology transfer.
