For its 2014 event, Luxe Pack New York showcased 200 of the most innovative beauty packaging suppliers in the world. Held May 14–15, 2014, Luxe Pack New York, which moved to a new venue at Pier 92 for 2014 due to climbing growth, experienced a 14% attendance increase over the 2013 edition of the event, welcoming 3,311 visitors over the two days.
In the aisles, exhibitors and attendees swapped thoughts and development ideas, sharing new materials, finishes, decorations, designs, innovations and insights to bring a robust new look at beauty packaging. And in the educational seminars, industry experts shared new plans to help push the industry forward. The seminars included a panel moderated by GCI magazine associate editor Abby Penning, “New Innovations from Exhibitors: Enhancing the Consumer Experience and Product Impact,” which focused on how beauty packaging innovations can heighten the experience consumers have with a beauty product, as well as how collaborative efforts between packaging suppliers and beauty brands can really bring products to new heights.
The event’s Innovation Forum, which highlights unique new offerings from Luxe Pack New York exhibitors, was the largest the event as ever seen as well, with entries from beauty industry packaging suppliers such as Anomatic, Aptar Beauty + Home, Cosmopak USA, Fusion Packaging, Hazen Paper Company, Leo Paper USA, Libo Cosmetics Co., Lumson, SGD North America, Technotraf Wood Packaging, Viva Healthcare Packaging, and Yonwoo International/PKG Group, among others.
Also at the event, Airopack was presented with the first Luxe Pack in Green Award at Luxe Pack New York for its pressurized dispensing system. The award, which debuted several years ago at Luxe Pack Monaco, recognizes the most innovative environmentally-friendly packaging solution at the show. “We are extremely thrilled to receive the Luxe Pack in Green Award,” said Quint Kelders, CEO of Airopack. “In the fast-moving world of packaging, it takes something pretty special to stand out. We are glad the market notices that with Airopack, we managed to achieve a truly innovative environmentally friendly packaging solution that performs as well as it looks. Our innovative Airopack dispensers are driven only by clean fresh air, yet are as powerful to dispense the contents to the last drop—even when it’s sprayed upside down.”
Luxe Pack New York 2015 is set to take place on Pier 92 in New York, May 13–14, 2015.
