NPE2012 will take on a fresh, bold, new form and still maintain the tradition of excellence that has made NPE the International Plastics Showcase for 70 years! NPE will once again be the world’s largest plastics conference, exposition and technology exchange. But a new city and a new venue will put more technology and innovation on display than ever before!

You can’t afford to miss the only plastics showcase that features emerging technologies and new applications from 2,000 suppliers, top-notch educational sessions led by industry experts and networking discussions among 75,000 professionals from 120 countries.

For the first time, NPE will be held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. What does this new venue mean for attendees? It means that NPE2012 will break the mold on previous shows by offering even more opportunities for every attendee and the industry as a whole.

  • More exciting show, with more equipment running? Because exhibitors will experience markedly lower costs in Orlando than Chicago (NPE’s previous home), NPE2012 will be a more dynamic show that attracts new participants, encourages bigger and better exhibits and includes larger and more numerous machines in full-scale operation.
  • Lower lodging costs compared to Chicago, Orlando’s variety of hotel accommodations will lower attendees’ lodging costs by an average of 23%. Plus, attendees will save significantly on taxi and ground transportation expenses as Orlando offers plenty of hotel, restaurant and nightlife options in close proximity to the Orange County Convention Center.
  • New travel opportunities. In comparison with travel to Chicago’s McCormick Place, the savings on travel to Orlando from the U.S. Midwest a key plastics manufacturing region is actually 19%.
  • New geographic markets and fun for the family. Orlando is much more easily accessible to travelers from anywhere south of the United States, making NPE attendance more attractive to industry professionals in Latin America and the Caribbean. And because Orlando is one of the world’s most popular destinations for tourism and vacations, it gives attendees from all regions the opportunity to take advantage of business travel by adding extra time for personal or family enjoyment.
