In March 2015, more than 60,000 professionals from every spectrum of the plastics industry and its vertical markets will assemble in Orlando, Florida to discover the tools, and access the emerging technologies that are shaping the future of plastics.
Participants include buying teams from 100 countries and more than 20,000 unique companies, representing the full range of end-user markets—appliances, automotive, consumer products, housing and construction, medical, packaging and more.
Regarded for more than 70 years as the world’s leading plastics trade show and conference, NPE is unequalled in its ability to bring the industry together. The show’s success is evident in the comprehensive presentation of game-changing materials, equipment, technology and innovation for every stage of plastics processing and distribution.
The international event features a one million-square-foot exhibit hall filled with full-scale, operating machinery and equipment, 2,000 exhibiting companies, a multi-pronged conference program, cutting edge technology pavilions, networking and special events, and much more.
For 2015, we have once again partnered with other industry leading conferences,organizations and companies to provide features, educational programming, technical paper presentations, design competitions and co-located events.
Building on a highly successful show in 2012, which was held for the first time in Orlando, Florida, NPE anticipates even greater participation from up and down the global plastics supply chain when it returns to the popular, business-friendly venue for 2015.
NPE is produced by the trade association SPI (Society of Plastics Industry) and is the only international plastics event presented by the industry for the industry. SPI was founded in 1937 to advance the interests of the plastics industry and provide companies with a forum to address issues and identify opportunities. It has been providing support and helping to catalyze growth for more than eight decades.
