Originally scheduled from 28 to 30 September 2020, the trade show dedicated to high-end and luxury packaging is now set to run two months later, from November 30 to December 2, 2020. As a consequence, the Paris-based special edition of the event is cancelled in 2020 and is rescheduled for June 2021.
According to the organizers, these new dates will allow the show to be more in line with the cycle of new product launches, which has been disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic. “The Covid-19 outbreak delayed the cycles of launches for many packaging manufacturers and luxury brands. This is why LUXE PACK has decided to support the industry and acknowledge this delay. The new dates of November 30th, December 1st and 2nd, 2020 at the Grimaldi Forum will allow the entire community to be aligned and to promote business recovery of the industry. Postponing the show will also enable the industry to benefit from the increased reopening of borders” they said in a statement.
Turnkey booths for a more simple and more efficient edition
In this very particular context, this edition of Luxe Pack Monaco is expected to be simpler and more sober: as an alternative to traditional tailor-made booths, an inventory of turnkey booths, "simple and high-quality", will be available to exhibitors.
In addition, all the rooms of the Grimaldi Forum will be made available to brands, giving them an opportunity to take advantage of the trip to organize workshops with suppliers and partners (project reviews, presentations, etc.) in a safe and confidential environment.
Exceptional measures, such as discounted pricing to most hotels, will also be enforced.
Furthermore, the organizers will add a digital platform to provide an online complement to the 3 day-tradeshow. “This tool will bring together all Luxe Pack communities (Monaco, New York, Los Angeles and Shanghai). It will considerably highlight the content of the show as well: product launches, innovations, trends and interviews with experts, etc.”, they added.
Strict health measures
Eventually, stringent hygiene and health security measures will be set up, starting from Nice Airport to the venue.
