The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS), producers of the triennial plastics tradeshow NPE, have announced that 1.2 million square feet on the NPE 2018 exhibit floor has been sold to exhibitors, making it the largest NPE in show history.

With the May 7–11, Orlando, Florida-based show being just a little over one month away, the exhibits are currently tracking 75,000 square feet – and counting – requested and sold over that which was requested of NPE 2015. To date, 2,150 exhibitors have secured space to showcase the plastics industry’s most innovative products and technologies.

“We are thrilled to announce that our exhibit floor is in such high demand that we’re already breaking show-defining records. And we’re still providing exhibitors the space they’re seeking to showcase their companies and products at the world’s premier plastics show, so our numbers will continue to grow,” says Susan Krys, vice president of tradeshows and marketing at PLASTICS. “We predict that this pre-show momentum will continue, making NPE 2018 one of the largest industry gatherings ever.”
