The 34th edition of Luxe Pack Monaco, the annual event for creative packaging professionals, which was held on 3-5 October 2022, was attended by 9,430 visitors, said the organizers.
With a growth of +20% compared to 2021 and +5% compared to 2019, and more the half (+53%) of visitors coming from abroad (a growth by 5% compared to 2021), the show has returned to its pre-COVID momentum.
“Visitors were back to - and even exceeded pre-COVID levels. This edition recorded very good attendance with the return of international visitors, while some of them were not able to attend last year, notably from the USA, the UK, Italy, and the Middle East. The exceptional quality of the high-profile decision-makers participating in Luxe Pack Monaco once again demonstrates the importance of this event. It is really the place where new relationships are formed, projects are created, and partnerships between exhibitors stand out. It is an exceptional network,” highlights Fabienne Germond, Director of the trade show.
Increasingly green focus
This year’s event confirmed the commitment of the 450 exhibitors towards eco-design and sustainability, allowing them to deliver their latest achievements with regards to packaging reduction, recycling, and reuse. The booths focused on single-material innovations, refillable packaging, and 100% recycled materials.
A symbol of this enthusiasm, the Luxe Pack in Green Awards received over 62 applications.
