ADF&PCD New York 2018 Exhibition Showcases Leading Packaging & Dispensing Technologies


ADF&PCD New York 2018, North and South America’s only dedicated event for the aerosol, dispensing, perfume and cosmetic packaging and design community, returns on September 5–6, 2018. The event, which takes place at the Altman Building & Metropolitan Pavilion, will have plenty of new ideas, materials and packaging concepts for professionals working in the cosmetic industry to draw on.

New Concepts

APR Packaging will be launching its new patented twist open/concealed nozzle airless package at the show. In the closed position, the nozzle is hidden within the package and the actuator is locked, therefore unable to dispense. When twisted open, the nozzle pivots cleanly into position and the actuator is unlocked.

Formulated Solutions is debuting its eN2fused Whipped Lotion Technology. This innovative dispensing format has been designed for fast absorption and ease of application. In addition, its unique gas-infused formula creates millions of microbubbles which rapidly expand when dispensed, creating a finely whipped, luxurious, yet easy to spread and rub-in experience.

Apollo Industrial will be displaying its full range of packaging for the cosmetics industry. This will include its cream jar, oil pump, mist sprayer and dispenser ranges. Also on show will be its foaming pump, which provides a rich and dense foam quality and offers a series of different mesh filters, dosages, capacities and designs.

AFA Polytek North-America is presenting Flairsol, its next-generation trigger-based dispensing technology that eschews conventional propellant gases and pressurized containers. Its low noise, re-usable head and refill solution make it a strong eco-option.

Enhanced and Expanded Content Offerings

In addition to the bustling exhibition, ADF&PCD New York 2018 will see the launch of ‘ICON’- where the most influential decision makers from global perfume and cosmetics brands will gather to network, discuss packaging issues and share best practice.

The show will also welcome the world’s most prestigious packaging design awards—The Pentawards—which are hosting a conference in the Americas for the first time. This design-focused conference will feature the best and brightest design minds from all over the globe including sessions lead by award-winning design agencies, including ForceMAJEURE, Pearlfisher and Established. 

There is a free-to-attend ADF & PCD conference which will update attendees on the newest innovations and technologies in the aerosol, dispensing and packaging industries. The sessions and interactive workshops, which will allow attendees to enhance their skills and knowledge, will be hosted by a who’s who of industry pioneers, such as L'Oréal, Ball Aerocan, American Spraytech, Honeywell, Aeropres, Sun Chemical and Hinterkopf.
