The first event in France for environmentally friendly luxury packaging, EDITION SPECIALE by Luxe Pack closed its doors on the evening of 5 June after an extremely positive event: 1,658 visitors.
“This 1st edition was a genuine success. Focused on ecological packaging innovations, the trade fair fulfilled its dual role as an informative platform for brands challenging themselves and a business forum for manufacturers,” explained Nathalie Grosdidier, Delegate General Director of IDICE, the event organisers.
Organised during Sustainable Development Week, this event celebrating ecology brought together 64 exhibitors who presented their reduced environmental impact packaging: glass, plastic, paper, cardboard, fabric, accessories. A whole host of solutions to help visitors design their future packaging.
“This trade fair kept its promises. Mainly focused on luxury packaging end-customers, the atmosphere at the event encouraged discussion and introductions to new customers,” highlighted German papermaker GMUND.
“The event kept its promises, making eco-responsibility a prerogative.
The Carreau du Temple was the perfect environment for the exhibition and the quality of the visitors fulfilled our expectations. A very satisfying experience,” said PM STUDIO, packaging and accessory manufacturer.
Very different from traditional round tables, the big debates organised in the morning and the brand-supplier feedback sessions in the afternoon were extremely popular.
Many experts in eco-design and the circular economy (COOPERATIVE MU, QUANTIS, UPCYLEA, CITEO, CNE) spoke about the new direction that is eco-design. It is a direction for a new era and will give another meaning to luxury goods. Whether they were committed pure players (ABSOLUTION, GARCON WINES, SEVENTYONE PERCENT) or big buyers (GUERLAIN, REMY COINTREAU, CLARINS, L’OCCITANE, LOUIS VUITTON), all agreed that the question of taking action is no longer relevant.
We need to move away from competition towards cooperation. An 'act together' revolution that works at every level.
