After the recent purchase of French company Oriex Communication, organiser of ADF & PCD (Aerosol & Dispensing Forum and Packaging of Perfume, Cosmetics & Design) events in Paris and New York, Easyfairs Oriex has today announced the appointment of Christelle Anya to lead the further development of the market-leading events.
Under the expert guidance and leadership of previous owner Jean-Pierre Appert, Anya has been instrumental in the growth of the shows over the last 17 years. Her energy and enthusiasm, and ability to work closely with key stakeholders to understand the marketplace, has been important to deliver highly renowned shows serving the community. The latest Paris event, held on 3 & 4 February 2016, attracted 6,500 attendees from over 70 different countries and 350 packaging suppliers.
In her new role as Event Director, Christelle assumes overall responsibility for the events including the awards and the highly respected conference programme. She becomes the face of the event and will take ownership of all special partnerships and relationships with conference chairs, speakers, judges, VIPs and brands. Following the success of the Paris event, the focus is now on the inaugural event in New York taking place on 13 & 14 September 2016 at the Altman Building & Metropolitan Pavilion. This launch has been a well received by the packaging community, from the many leading suppliers already committed to exhibiting, as well as major brands and the industry as a whole supporting the event.
