For its seventh edition, Luxe Pack New York, the luxury packaging trade exhibition, will return to the Metropolitan Pavilion and Altman Building on West 18th St., May 20-21. More than 100 exhibitors are expected to participate this year. Since its launch in 2003, the event has been held at the Metropolitan Pavilion. Last year, it expanded into the adjoining Altman Building for the first time. The combined space of The Altman Building and Metropolitan Pavilion totals 40,000 square feet, according to show organizers.
“Luxe Pack New York continues to get stronger every year and we expect the same in 2009,” said Nathalie Grosdidier, executive director, Luxe Pack New York. “Despite the economy, we have a strong list of exhibitors and are putting together a top-notch program of events.”
In addition to seeing more innovative packaging at Luxe Pack New York 2009, visitors will have the opportunity to attend a number of compelling seminars and conferences during the two-day event.
