Why attend ADF&PCD Paris 2019?

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&PCD Paris 2019 visitors will also benefit from the exploration of cross-sector technology transfer.

Getting an award at PCD or ADF is always an exciting moment. It encourages us to keep developing best-in-class innovations for our consumers and rewards the development teams who have been working on these products for months or even years. It also strengthens collaboration with our suppliers and fosters exchanges with other experts in the cosmetics and aerosol industry.
