Edition Spéciale by Luxe Pack gets creative in 2020

Paris trade show Edition Spéciale by Luxe Pack is gearing up for its second edition in May with an uptick in exhibitor numbers, crafts and design animations and a focus on innovative start-ups.

Like its inaugural edition in 2019, this year’s show will once again be devoted to sustainable packaging solutions, given the topic’s continued importance in the industry, and is set to welcome 75 exhibitors for its second edition, an increase of 18% on 2019.

Show organizer Idice is putting a focus on animations this year, with a dedicated area on the show floor hosting ceramicist Manon Picot, specialized in the creation of refillable ceramic bottles for perfumes and cosmetics, and Laurence Saugé, founder of Boutures d’Objets, which uses waste materials to create design objects, textiles and lighting. Visitors at the show will be able to participate in workshops with Manon Picot to decorate their own ceramic bottles.

Start-up pitch sessions—a new feature this year—will spotlight companies developing innovative and inspiring packaging materials. These include Symbiotec, a manufacturer of eco-friendly packaging made from mycelium (the threadlike structures of fungi) and Green Gen Technologies, which has created a bottle made of flax fibers and plant resins. Pili, meanwhile, replaces polluting dyes from petrochemicals with ecological pigments naturally produced by bacteria, and Authentic Material transforms waste or scrap materials such as leather and cow horns into high-quality materials.

Luxe Packaging Insight will unveil further details on the start-up pitches as well as the conference program in the coming weeks.

Edition Spéciale by Luxe Pack is taking place at Paris’ Carreau du Temple on May 26-27. Some 2,000 visitors are expected to attend.
