PCD congress: An outstanding edition for Perfumes & Cosmetics packaging experts!
PCD 8th edition was held for the very first time at the Espace Champerret in Paris, along with Aerosol & Dispening Forum (ADF). Some 100 suppliers of packaging, dispensing systems, services and technologies for perfumes and cosmetics presented their innovations to 2,430 attendees from 43 countries, in a very relaxed, user-friendly setting. Everyone underscored how simultaneous organization with ADF enabled them to optimize their contacts and meet the key players over this two-day period.
The 9th edition of PCD congress will be held on Feb. 6th and 7th 2013 in the Espace Champerret in Paris, France.
Christina Zech, Vice President R&D, Geka, Germany:
"PCD is a great location, you meet more international clients. PCD allows us to meet all the community of the cosmetic industry and it can be a fruitful mutual exchange in both side. We can exchange with the suppliers and you can exchange on the latest news, which is very interesting. For the conference programme in 2013, I would love to go into details with consumers inside for the development of new products in the field of decorative cosmetics and aerosol as well. It would be my pleasure to be here next year!"
Paul France, Vice President, Open Innovation, MWV, USA:
"More and more companies are relaying on innovation to drive the growth, the business. The major benefit of "open innovation" is accelerating innovation by partnering with outside world. We have here our customers, the brand owners to collaborate together. PCD is a very good show for us. I will be pleased to come back next year."
