    SCAM ALERT: Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS), producer of NPE2021, has received several reports of invalid third party hotel room scammers contacting our attendees. These hotel booking scammers have no affiliation with NPE2021. 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 attendees from conducting business with room poachers. If you are solicited by any group other than Expovision, please contact npe@plasticsindustry.org
