• The next edition of Luxe Pack New York, the luxury pack-
aging trade exhibition in its ninth year, will be the largest event to
date, with an additional 10 exhibitors scheduled to participate. The
show, which sold out five months before its opening, will be held
May 18-19 at The Altman Building and Metropolitan Pavilion.
To assist visitors in locating the suppliers that specialize in their
market, Luxe Pack is launching three specific tracks—Beauty, Wine
& Sprits and Fine Foods. Exhibitors in each track will be identified
on the floor map at the show.
“Luxe Pack New York is the event that helps brands and designers develop their creative packaging, with all the resources
needed under one roof. The launch of the new specialized tracks
will allow visitors to quickly identify the suppliers they need to see,
while still enjoying the creativity and inspiration provided by those
exhibitors in other tracks,” said Nathalie Grosdidier, executive director, Luxe Pack New York.
Compelling seminars and special displays will again be a primary attraction at the two-day event.
XD 11 Twist New at Rexam
• The Rexam XD 11 Twist fragrance pump, introduced at PCD
2011, is the first solution on the market to
provide customers with new levels of
product differentiation, in terms of ergonomics, eco-appeal and brand protection, according to the company.
Specifically, it is the first pump
on the market utilizing The Crimpless System (TCS) that can easily be separated—with just a
simple twist—from the bottle
once the fragrance is used,
which facilitates recycling. The
patented design of the XD 11
Twist makes it impossible to
reassemble, thus limiting
counterfeiting and protecting
Moreover, the XD 11 Twist
offers the same advantages as
a TCS pump: an easy fitment
on the assembly lines and less
breakage of glass necks, compared to screw pumps.
