  • Where do I find hotels for NPE2021?

    Expovision is the only Official Hotel Reservation Office for NPE2021. Hotel reservations for NPE2021 will open in Spring 2020. 

    SCAM ALERT: Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS), producer of NPE2021, has received several reports of invalid third party hotel room scammers contacting our exhibitors. These hotel booking scammers have no affiliation with NEP2021. Expovision has negotiated the lowest rates in Orlando, FL for NPE2021 and only requires a one-night room rate plus tax deposit. Any company requiring full prepayment should be viewed with extreme suspicion. 

    We strive to protect our exhibitors from conducting business with room poachers. If you are solicited by any group other than Expovision, please contact exhibitorservices@npe.org
