Registration is now open for NPE 2018: The Plastics Show, the international plastics manufacturing exposition. It returns to Orlando, Florida, from May 7-11, 2018.

NPE2018 is expected to draw more than 65,000 professionals from all segments of the plastics industry and its related vertical and end-user markets. NPE 2018 will showcase 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.

“NPE 2018 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,” says William R. Carteaux, president and CEO of PLASTICS, the association that organizes the event. “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 a Bottle Zone, 3D and 4D Zone and a Refocus Sustainability & Recycling Summit.

Exhibit space for NPE 2018 recently 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. NPE is also accepting new applications.
