Finally! Trade shows can open their doors again in France!
LUXE PACK MONACO, on 27, 28, and 29 September 2021 at the Grimaldi Forum, will be a key event supporting the recovery’ explained Fabienne GERMOND, Director of the LUXE PACK Monaco trade show.
Fabienne GERMOND, Director of the LUXE PACK Monaco trade show says,” We have been very attentive to our exhibitors (as well as to the luxury brands that come to the show) and heard that there was obviously a strong desire to meet up and share experiences of these extraordinary months. Nothing can replace physical meetings. First, because digital technology cannot replace the pleasure of seeing products in real life, of touching new materials, of feeling new formulae… Second, because professionals need to meet to share, build, make contacts, and implement projects meeting the requirements of the Luxury market.
18 months without a show… and we will be the first in September! There is an irresistible desire to come back to Monaco, to see product innovations and network in a pleasant environment, far from the interiors in which we have spent a lot of time this year! Everything that makes the difference and the charm of LUXE PACK Monaco.”

safety measures will be implemented
LUXE PACK MONACO is committed to applying the strictest recommendations of the French and Monaco authorities and is working closely with the Grimaldi Forum to ensure the health safety of participants.

The lessons learned from the hybrid edition of My LUXE PACK digital platform
Nothing can replace physical events, The organizers of the event learned that digital technology can play a very interesting role for our community as it frees them from time and geographic limits and, therefore, allows them to bring together supply and demand all year round, all over the world.
MY LUXE PACK platform is positioned as an online extension of the physical shows. It offers participants the opportunity to prepare for their visit, to discover the full list of the exhibitors and their latest innovations, and to select the conferences they want to attend. For those who cannot travel, it also allows them to stay in touch with the current highlight through the distribution of content (webinars, conferences, etc.) and being able to contact suppliers at any time.
What is on the programme this year?
It is a dense programme with marketing topics around the notion of luxury in terms of positioning and evolution as well as conferences and technical workshops on issues and the acceleration of trends that take stock of what is at play in the industry.
Three major business issues facing brands will be highlighted at LPMC 2021:
For twelve years, we have organised LUXE PACK in Green, which has become the benchmark event showcasing the best responsible solutions and initiatives of our exhibitors. Exhibition space, dedicated conferences, and awards ceremony are all tools that will be at your disposal to gain access to a real gauge of international green trends.
Every day, dedicated conferences will be hosted by committed international stakeholders, such as BSR, BAIN & COMPANY, POSITIVE LUXURY, MOET HENNESSY, and CHANEL.
The pandemic precipitated the luxury market’s transformation in China. In this thriving new ecosystem, Gen Z is driving trends. In 2025, 50% of luxury purchases worldwide will be made by Chinese consumers: a market as essential as it is atypical for international brands.
At LUXE PACK Monaco, we will offer a sensory and personalised experience that will give the keys to China: free individual consulting, expert round tables, and exhibition of specific products, in partnership with the brand intelligence agency CentDegres.
- NEW MATERIALS
Brand demand for eco-designed materials is accelerating. They are looking for solutions that go beyond the basic recycled version of conventional materials, be it glass, paper, or cardboard. This year, at LUXE PACK Monaco, visitors will discover innovative materials resulting from French public research serving Packaging and Luxury, through the CARATS network (CARnot Technical and Scientific Support). A network of Carnot Institutes (Ingénierie@Lyon, MICA, and M.I.N.E.S.) on which over 4,000 researchers share their expertise on ‘exceptional’ and prototypical formatting of new materials and processes.
