The annual premium and luxury packaging trade show broke its attendance record for its 2023 edition, which was held from October 2 to 4 at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. According to the organizers, the event welcomed 10,420 visitors, an increase of 10.5% compared to 2022, which can be partly explained by the ever-greater number of companies exhibiting (+19%). The share of international visitors (i.e. coming from out of France) remains above 50%.

The strong increase in the number of visitors is a source of great satisfaction for us and confirms that brands and contractors can find pertinent solutions for their packaging projects and responses to the challenges in this sector at Luxe Pack Monaco,” said Fabienne Germond, the show director.

Successful launch for Luxe Home

The organizers also welcomed the good attendance at the new Luxe Home space, which was inaugurated this year.

The area, which brings together candles, diffusers, matches, snuffers and even scented rods and dry diffusion with bead encapsulators, will be brought back in 2024.
