Conference Programs and "The Luxury Goods Packaging Forum" Series
Two complementary conference programs put a strong focus on technical innovation, future trends and education as the pathway to the future of packaging. Each session is created in collaboration with high level packaging experts from leading beauty and personal care brands, distinguished academicians, and key associations, including Beiersdorf, Coty USA, The Estée Lauder Companies, Fashion Institute of Technology, L'Oréal, Procter & Gamble, KAO, Rutgers University and more.
A special series of lectures, called LGP "The Luxury Goods Packaging Forum," will take place under conference program umbrella. Presented by Material ConneXion, brand representatives and their packaging suppliers, these lectures will address compelling topics surrounding the $15 billion world market for luxury or creative product packaging. For consumers (350 million in 2015), the feeling of luxury, and use of the product, is conveyed by the packaging at the time of purchase. The industry is seeing an annual growth of about 4.4 percent per annum, particularly in the case of pastries, chocolate, gourmet products, wines, spirits and tobacco, clothes, accessories and fashion items, electronic and recreational products, leather goods, optical goods, jewelry and silverware, fine watch-making, and many other fast growing sectors.
One of the goals of this program is to inspire visitors—including packaging, innovation, R&D, development and purchasing directors in the various fields of activity (cosmetics and fragrance, pharmaceuticals and health, beverages, food, pet food and veterinary products, DIY and gardening, paint, technical applications, etc.)—to boost innovation through the potential of technology transfers which will abound at ADF&PCD New York.
Topics to be explored in the ADF series include the latest technological advances in aerosol, state-of-the-art spray technologies, plastic aerosol update, among others. The PCD program will address the latest technological advances and innovations in beauty care, skincare and makeup; a future perspective on fragrance packaging; how packaging is the path to new services; and more. Eco-conception and sustainable development will be covered as a shared session among ADF&PCD.
In addition, leading brands are set to participate in the conference programs and series of seminars under the umbrella of "The Luxury Goods Packaging Forum (LGP)," will be held as part of the comprehensive program.
