Can you give some tips for those exhibiting in LuxePack New York for the first time? (venue rules, business etiquette, customs...)

It is a bit early to announce exhibitors. We have just started accepting applications in late July. The event will take place at Pier 92 in 2017. It is a business event that is developed for high-level corporate networking but we create a setting that is intimate and friendly. For 2016, we had the LUXE PACK Mingle for the first time. This was a cocktail hour that allowed all participants to network over a glass of champagne and music. It is important that we also provide a bit of fun factor into the show.

What brings LuxePack to the city of New York (talking on economic terms)?

In addition to the other LUXE PACK Shows in Monaco and Shanghai, we wanted to offer a comparable US-based show. We wanted to offer the brands based out of the US the opportunity to meet with the best of packaging manufacturers and suppliers to facilitate their business development. NYC is home to many of the largest brands in the cosmetics and fragrance industries and therefore it made sense to bring LUXE PACK to New York.

Finally, there are still many months ahead but, do you have any participation forecast for 2017's edition?

It is a bit early to tell. We will have additional show details in early fall 2016.
