Due to its unique pseudorapidity coverage and the possibility of extending measurements to low transverse momenta, LHCb provides important input to the understanding of particle production in a kinematical range where QCD models have large uncertainties. Measurements of charged, strange and charmed particle production and energy flow are performed in the approximate pseudorapidity range 2<η<5, which corresponds to the acceptance of the LHCb spectrometer. The results are compared to predictions given by several Monte Carlo event generators.
