The eighth edition of Luxe Pack New York, the luxury packaging trade exhibition, will be held May 19–20, 2010, at The Altman Building and Metropolitan Pavilion (135 West 18th St. between 6th and 7th avenues). In order to make room for a few additional exhibitors and to provide a more intimate setting for the seminars, the presentations will take place on the lower level of The Altman Building.
“Luxe Pack New York has proven itself year after year as the important event for innovation in luxury packaging,” said Nathalie Grosdidier, executive director, Luxe Pack New York. “This year, as environmentally responsible packaging becomes more and more important, and manufacturers produce a stronger offer, we felt it was important to shine the spotlight on exhibitors’ green products with a special display called Luxury in Green. Of course we’ll be announcing top level seminars soon, too.”
The two-day event will again include seminars and special displays, designed to enhance the visitors’ experience. “Designing for The New Reality,” conceptualized and moderated by internationally renowned designer Marc Rosen with a panel of experts, will be among the presentations.
“Luxe Pack in Green” will showcase environmentally responsible packaging from exhibitors, gathered in one display. As always, the FiFi nominees will also be presented as well as student designs from Marc Rosen’s graduate packaging design program at Pratt Institute.
The keynote speaker, additional seminars and special attractions will be announced shortly.
