Every three years, NPE offers the plastics industry a global platform to highlight innovation throughout the industry across a show floor that features more than 1.2 million net square feet of exhibit space. With 2,100+ exhibitors spotlighting the latest technologies, equipment and machinery, materials, and processes across 13 distinct technology zones, including 3D/4D printing, bottling, robotics and automation, and flexible and rigid packaging, this is the show the industry won’t want to miss.

“NPE2021 is the premier event for all sectors of the plastic industry to network, exchange ideas, and see the latest innovations moulding the future of plastics,” said President and CEO of Plastics, Tony Radoszewski, CAE. “Attendees will be able to learn about emerging plastics trends; purchase the latest machinery, materials, and equipment that are revolutionising manufacturing; and connect with industry leaders.”

“Given the challenges of the past six months, it is vitally important for the plastics community to come together and support each other with a positive outlook to the future,” said Radoszewski. “NPE2021 will be the place not only to highlight key contributions in the world’s response to the Coronavirus but also to see what’s coming from businesses across an industry that will transform tomorrow.”

Earlier this year, Plastics held the show’s Space Draw for priority exhibit space selection. This was the first time the Space Draw was conducted completely online. Previously, NPE exhibitors needed to attend an in-person event in Orlando to select their exhibit space. It was the second-largest space selection event in the history of the show, just one percent shy of the all-time record, and subsequent sales have resulted in a show floor exceeding one million net square feet of space sold to nearly 1,200 participating companies, Plastics states.

NPE2021 returns to the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) in Orlando, Florida from May 17–21, 2021. Earlier this summer, the OCCC was awarded a Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR accreditation for outbreak prevention, response and recovery.
