FiberMark to Attend Two Prominent Packaging Design Industry Events Nearby its Noted Manhattan Design Center

For Immediate Release

(West Springfield, MA, May 10, 2012) – With its industry-renowned Manhattan Design Center ‘right in the neighborhood,’ so to speak, it makes perfect sense that FiberMark, a world-class producer of specialty fiber-based materials used in decorative coverings for luxury packaging and publishing, is planning to be present at two important, New York City-based decorative design shows in the month of May.

Since it first opened in 2008, FiberMark’s Manhattan Design Center has served as a showcase and library for the company’s richly textured and colored cover materials. Situated in New York City’s fashionable Flatiron District, the beautifully designed Center is located at 20 West 22nd Street, Suite 703.

Some might call that walking distance from the upcoming industry shows. First, on May 16 and 17, FiberMark (www.fibermark.com), will be displaying its products and expertise from booth #H-1 at LuxePack New York. One of the packaging and design industry’s premiere events, LuxePack attracts more than 140 exhibitors displaying some of the world's most creative packaging solutions in a wide variety of categories, including fragrances-cosmetics, jewelry-watches, gourmet foods, wines and spirits, tobacco products and tableware. Held annually, it has won accolades for offering diversity and quality in its exhibitors and visitors.

This year’s show is especially notable because it marks LuxePack’s 10th anniversary. In addition to the exhibitors’ hall, the show will offer a full complement of seminars and presentations relevant to the packaging design industry. “Because the show is considered so important to our industry, we make it a point to attend LuxePack annually,” notes FiberMark’s President and CEO, Anthony MacLaurin. For additional information about LuxePack, please visit their website at http://www.luxepacknewyork.com/accueil.php?ny.

Later in the month, on May 23rd, FiberMark will attend the Art Director’s Club 2012 Spring Paper Expo. The Expo attracts paper vendors and creative designers who are invited to mingle with their peers and collect the latest paper and printing samples. Also held in New York City, ADC is widely regarded for its renowned Annual Awards competition. Currently in its 90th year, the competition recognizes the best work of the year in print and broadcast advertising, interactive media, graphic design, publication design, packaging, photography and illustration. For further information, please visit the ADC’s website at http://www.adcglobal.org/.
