Ideas and conversations also flowed on the exhibition floor as attendees and exhibitors interacted, discussing needs and solutions, tools and options, collaborations and partnerships, product uses and new trends that packaging is being developed to meet. “We try to bring ideas and inspiration each year,” Grosdidier commented. “We look for inspirational designs and creativity, and highlight quality and innovation and thoughtful ways packaging is meeting trends—we always want to be ahead of the market. We want evolving ideas and inspiring opportunities and creative new capabilities and materials.”
Special exhibits on the exhibition floor focused on some of these assets, including the Luxe Pack Innovation Forum, the Material ConneXion Lab, and the Pratt Institute “Marc Rosen Scholarship and Education Fund for Packaging by Design at Pratt Institute” student designs.
And to celebrate its 10 years in New York, Luxe Pack held a cocktail party on the evening of May 16, co-sponsored by GCI magazine, that recognized the event’s growth over the past decade. “We hadn’t really stopped to celebrate it until now,” Grosdidier noted, “but it’s a great time to show how pleased we are to have been able to bring this together for the past 10 years.”
The next Luxe Pack event is Luxe Pack Monaco, set to take place October 24–26 at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco, and Luxe Pack Shanghai is set for the Shanghai International Convention Center April 23–24, 2013, while the 2013 edition of Luxe Pack New York will again take place in May.
