Space Requests for NPE 2021 Tracking Ahead of NPE 2018’s Record-Breaking Pace

The Plastics Industry Association (Plastics), hosts of NPE: The Plastics Show, announced today that company requests for exhibit space at NPE 2021 are already outpacing the demand for space ahead of NPE 2018 — a year in which the show sold out at its official Space Draw event for the first time in the show’s more than 80-year history.

Space on the NPE trade show floor — which exceeded 1.2 million square feet in 2018 — is assigned through the Space Draw process:

  • First, companies send requests for space on the trade show floor by the Space Draw deadline.
  • Second, their space selection order for the Space Draw is determined by lottery based on priority show history.
  • Finally, companies draw their space between January 21 and April 9, 2020.

“By the measure of space requests,” said Plastics Vice President of Trade Shows and Marketing Susan Krys, “we’re well ahead of where we were at the same point in the NPE 2018 show cycle, before we broke all our records.”

“More companies are requesting exhibit space and the amount of space being requested is more than was requested for 2018,” she added. “This is a strong sign for NPE 2021 and a reminder to other companies hoping to make their mark on the show floor to get their space requests in now before time — and space — run out.”

“That NPE 2021 space applications are outpacing NPE 2018’s just illustrates how much demand there is for plastic materials and products today,” said Plastics President & CEO Tony Radoszewski. “The outlook for plastics continues to exceed expectations, and it’s driven by our industry’s commitment to innovation and the kind of sales and relationship-building that only take place on the NPE show floor.”
