NPE2018: The Plastics Show Opens Registration

Show Returns to Orlando May 7-11, 2018

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) today announced that registration has opened for NPE2018: The Plastics Show, the association’s triennial, international plastics manufacturing exposition returning to Orlando, Fla., May 7-11, 2018. This is the show’s third consecutive time in Orlando.
NPE2018 will draw more than 65,000 professionals from all segments of the plastics industry – and its related vertical and end-user markets – for the largest, most influential trade event in the plastics industry and its extended industries. NPE2018 showcases the emerging technologies, materials suppliers and processors that will shape plastics, combining the full array of game-changing services, equipment, suppliers, resources, sustainability, innovation, education and opportunity.
“NPE2018 is the leading forum for plastics industry leaders to share ideas and see the next generation of innovation and technology driving the plastics industry into the future,” said William R. Carteaux, president and CEO of PLASTICS. “We’re excited to welcome the leading minds in plastics to a contemporary, interactive marketplace for five days of active learning, high-powered collaboration and unparalleled discovery.”
New features on the exhibit floor include:
  • Bottle Zone – an invaluable resource for companies that work with PET pre-forms, molds, labeling, filling, closures, design and inspection equipment in bottle and container manufacturing for beverages, pharmaceuticals, home products and personal care. Supporting partners include PETplanet, drinktec and ISBT. Educational tracks will be included in this zone.
  • 3D & 4D Zone – allowing exploration of the trends and technologies behind three- and four-dimensional prototypes, mold components and finished parts.
  • Re|focus Sustainability & Recycling Summit– providing recycling professionals access to revolutionary equipment, reliable supplies and the processors and brand owners seeking sustainable solutions for their business. This will be the third annual Summit but the first to be co-located at NPE2018.
PLASTICS previously announced that exhibit space for NPE2018 sold-out for the first time in show history during the association’s Space Draw event. Show Management is working to open additional exhibit space. Space applicants not assigned during Space Draw will be contacted in order of Space Draw priority to select space when available.
