Exclusive designs for luxury packaging

The 17th Luxe Pack, which took place in Monaco from October 20th to 23rd, was judged to be a great success, with 5,390 exhibitors on 9,000 square metres of exhibition space attracting 5,930 visitors – an increase of 1.6 percent.

The models submitted for the Design Competition and a special exhibition launch, highlighted the immense potential of the cosmetics sector for creativity. COS041222 More...
