is the only game in town if you want to meet the cream of the crop from suppliers to
clients.” Richard Engel, Decotech, Inc.
“Even though this year’s Luxe Pack New York was the largest it has ever been, it still
maintained the quality of both exhibitors and attendees. We enjoyed exhibiting and met
quality leads as we always do at Luxe Pack. We are looking forward to next year’s
edition already!” Diego Bulgarelli, LF of America Corp.

number of exhibitors, yet has the impact of a lot of traffic. We were pleased to find that
Luxe Pack met both criteria. We will return in years to come.” Dustin Schadt, Artistic
