The ninth edition of Luxe Pack New York, the luxury packaging trade exhibition held May 18 and 19 at The Altman Building and Metropolitan Pavilion saw record-breaking attendance with 2,370 visitors, an increase of 11% compared to 2010. The two-day event spotlighted 131 exhibitors, eight seminars, and three special exhibits.
New this year, Luxe Pack launched three specific tracks—Beauty track, Wine and Sprits track, and the Fine Foods track—to help visitors easily locate the suppliers that specialized in their market. “Luxe Pack New York really doesn’t look like any other show,” says Nathalie Grosdidier, executive director, Luxe Pack New York. “It has found its position as an outstanding efficient and convivial meeting place, a must-attend event for business between companies sharing the same core values of excellence and innovation. We are looking forward to our 10th anniversary next year.”
“Luxe Pack continues its legacy for exceeding exhibitors’ expectations of a trade show. This is the place for buyers and suppliers in the luxury packaging industry.”
– Anthony DiMaio, Cameo Metal Products, Inc.
“Even though this year’s Luxe Pack New York was the largest it has ever been, it still maintained the quality of both exhibitors and attendees. We enjoyed exhibiting and met quality leads as we always do at Luxe Pack. We are looking forward to next year’s edition already!”
– Diego Bulgarelli, LF of America Corp.
