Event organizers say that NPE 2018 was the largest in show history, boasting more than 2,180 exhibitors across 1.2 million square feet of exhibition space.

“We worked diligently to continue the tradition of innovation that NPE is known for with features like our 80,000 square-foot Bottle Zone and our expanded education programming,” notes PLASTICS vice president of trade shows and marketing Susan Krys. “Over the five days, we’ve been on the ground and hearing directly from the many members and attendees who we’ve worked with tirelessly to put on a show of this magnitude. Attendees have been really impressed with NPE this year.”

 The triennial trade show’s theme was “We’ve got it covered.” Attendees in Orlando spent the week uncovering innovation, business intelligence and opportunity, gaining exclusive access to the people, processes, science and ideas that are shaping the future of plastics.
