GMUND and DAPY, two of the most prestigious names in luxury packaging, have confirmed that they are exhibiting at Luxury Packaging, which is co-located with Packaging Innovations London and the Brand & Design Village 2013.
This will be the first time either company has exhibited at the rapidly expanding Luxury Packaging show, which returns to the Business Design Centre on 1 & 2 October. Simret Woldu, International Sales Manager at GMUND UK, explains why her company has decided to exhibit: "London is at the heart of the design, brand and innovation community; it's the place where many designers and buyers working for major luxury brands go when looking for new ideas and inspiration. So when we heard that there was a packaging event in London that attracts over 3,000 people, with a dedicated Luxury Packaging show co-located in the same venue, we just had to be there."
GMUND has been manufacturing paper since 1829. Today its fine papers are used by many of the world's most prestigious brands, such as Jaguar Landrover, Mercedes Benz, Campari, Trump International Golf Links Scotland, Cannes Film Festival & Godiva Chocolatier. Simret Woldu adds: "Packaging Innovations London 2013 will give us a tremendous opportunity to showcase our work, and the extraordinary effects and finished look people can achieve with our products. We also plan to connect with many contacts within the packaging and print industries."
Luxury packaging and point of sale specialist DAPY is also exhibiting at the show for the first time. Marc Bruneau, Sales Manager at DAPY, says: "Packaging Innovations London was already a very interesting show, but the addition of the co-located Luxury Packaging show has taken it to a new level. It's so relevant for our business and the perfect place for us to present our latest innovations and reach potential customers."
Many other major names including GF Smith Ltd, Wrapology, HH Deluxe Packaging, Cole Fabrics Pic, Macfarlane Packaging, Premier Ribbon Bows & Boxes, Progress Packaging and MNC Stribbons have also signed up for the Luxury Packaging show at Packaging Innovations London. Collette Chasseaud, National Account Manager at MNC Stribbons, explains why her company will be there:
"Packaging Innovations gives us the opportunity to reach out to key buyers and promote our portfolio as a destination supplier for creative packaging solutions. We encompass a wide range of industries and Packaging Innovations enables us to engage with this spectrum on a grand scale. We have no doubt that the show will provide us with an excellent level of leads and also promote our premium services to companies and individuals that we haven't previously engaged with."
Packaging Innovations London at the Business Design Centre is co-located with Luxury Packaging and the Brand & Design Village. There are a host of show features including the Luxury VIP Lounge and a host of inspirational learnShop seminars.
