The Washington-based Plastics Industry Association (Plastics) says exhibit space at the NPE2024 show May 6-10 in Orlando, Florida, already has sold out, breaking previous records for the United States exposition held every three years.
Plastics, which calls NPE2024 ”the global platform for innovation in plastics,” says its planned 1.1 million net square feet of exhibit space has completely sold out. “This is a significant achievement 12 months ahead of the triennial trade show,” the organization says. “NPE previously surpassed the NPE2018 exhibit sales record in March at the NPE2024 ‘space draw.’”
More than 2,000 exhibitors will participate in NPE2024: The Plastics Show in Orlando, and Plastics CEO Matt Seaholm says continued exhibitor enthusiasm reflects NPE’s importance to the global plastics industry.
“We are excited to showcase the latest advancements in plastic materials, manufacturing, recycling and processing—including innovations from more than 180 first-time NPE exhibitors,” Seaholm says.
Exhibitors from 34 countries, including India, Italy, Germany and Japan, will be at the global trade show, Plastics says, and more than 55,000 attendees are expected at NPE2024.
“NPE is more than a trade show; it is a hands-on experience,” Plastics Chief Operating Officer Glenn Anderson says. “It’s where professionals across every industry gather to witness leading-edge plastics innovation and technology while advancing their business, building partnerships and unlocking new opportunities to build a more sustainable economy.”
Among the exhibit areas will be an Advanced Manufacturing Zone, Recycling & Sustainability Zone, Bottle Zone, Materials Science Zone, Moldmaking Zone and Packaging Zone.
“With an end goal of diverting 100 percent of the recyclable plastic [scrap] generated during the event, sustainability is not just a category at NPE2024,” says Annina Donaldson, chair of the NPE2024 Sales and Marketing Committee. “Sustainability is a commitment incorporated into every detail.”
“The onsite NPE recycling center will do more than reduce waste inside the Orange County Convention Center—this dual-purpose space will serve as a live, interactive display for attendees to learn about the latest recycling techniques,” Donaldson says. “Exhibitors will also be offered end-of-show recycling and donation opportunities for materials they don’t want to ship back home to reduce our carbon footprint.”
