The Orange County Convention Centre will be the location for NPE 2015, the show's biggest outing to date
Official data released by the orgainers of the recent NPE tradeshow has revealed the latest outing was the biggest in the show’s history to date, with an increase in size, exhibitors and visitors.
SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Association says NPE2015 attracted 2,029 exhibitors over 104,813 sq.m of exhibit space—exceeding the previous records of 2,009 exhibitors and 96,712 sq.m set in 2000.
In addition, registered attendance for NPE2015 was 65,810—19 percent greater than three years ago. These registrants came from 23,396 unique companies—22 percent more than the 19,198 companies at NPE2012. International participation also set new NPE records, with nearly 44 percent of exhibiting companies and 26 percent of registrants came from outside the United States.
“What made NPE2015 a milestone in the 69-year history of NPE was not only its size and international diversity, but also the richness of its offerings to attendees,” said William R. Carteaux, SPI president and CEO. “The hundreds of machines operating on the show floor, the customer service centers provided by material suppliers, the pavilions and programmes on current issues and emerging technologies, the extensive agenda of co-located conferences—this wealth of content surpassed our previous shows and now provides a guideline for making future NPEs even more attractive to participants. The plastics industry should be truly proud of its show.”
NPE2018 will take place Monday through Friday, May 7-11, 2018, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. Visit www.npe.org.
