Even with 15 years of experience at Luxe Pack, Nathalie Grosdidier is still fascinated by packaging, and her passion for bringing together its key players—those creating packaging and those utilizing packaging to connect with consumers—remains.
Hired as a sales and marketing director in 1995, Grosdidier helped oversee the launch of Luxe Pack New York in 2003. When conceptualizing the new show, Grosdidier and her team invented a new generation of events, and the outcome was an atypical event that served the needs and goals of both supplier and brand owner bases. In 2005, Grosdidier was named Luxe Pack’s deputy general director. Under her direction, the event continued to evolve, always striving to bring stronger seminar content and compelling exhibits to its audience. With the natural development of this worldwide market, the event expanded again in 2007 when Luxe Pack Shanghai launched, utilizing the same business model as Luxe Pack New York.
The overarching philosophy, shepherded by Grosdidier, is that the biggest achievements are the result of face-to-face meetings, and the concept created specifically to bring talents together has become a powerful tool to help every participant reach individual and collective goals.
