Innovation from start-up companies
New this year, a ‘Startups Packaging’ area will welcome young companies developing innovative and sustainable alternatives for packaging. Participants include: German start-up Rezemo, which has already made a name for itself with Forewood, its range of wood fibre-based cosmetic packaging; Raiku’s Estonian team, which is using wood as a substitute to plastic bubble wrap; Hong Kong-based HK Biotech, which is replacing polystyrene foam with mycelium, and Turkey-based Wastea, which offers a 100% sustainable, plant-based, and organic alternative to genuine leather, made from dry tea waste.
Conferences and workshops
This year again, Édition Spéciale by Luxe Pack offers educational and expert contents through conferences and workshops “on concrete topics, in line with issues brands face every day.”
This year, the programme will be based on four main formats:
Workshops led by professionals and experts (ADEME, Citeo, Cooperative Mu, (Re)Set, Re-Sources, Arnaud Le Berrigaud, Pascale Brousse, Gerald Martines), where small groups of participants will debate on their current eco-design issues (resources, LCA, semantics, reuse, etc.).
Round tables gathering brands, suppliers, associations and experts.
Feedback. In pairs, exhibitors will take the floor with their brand customers to share their experience of concrete use cases based on key themes (natural materials, reuse, recycling, weight reduction, etc.).
Pitches: In no more than 10 minutes, manufacturers will showcase innovative and sustainable materials made from wool, recycled shell, cork, plant fibres, marine waste, natural raw materials, etc.
