The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) announced that it has sold more than 1 million square feet of exhibit space for NPE2024: The Plastics Show. At this year’s in-person Space Draw event Feb. 27-March 3, more than 1,100 exhibitors selected space across 1,259 booths for a record of 1,024,462 square feet sold – topping the 982,000 square feet sold in 2018.

“We are thrilled to see this level of commitment 14 months ahead of the show opening,” said Matt Seaholm, president and CEO of PLASTICS. “The plastics industry has undergone incredible amounts of changes over the last few years, and industry leaders are eager to showcase their latest innovations. The swift pace of floor space selections is a testament to NPE’s significance as the largest plastics products, materials and manufacturing show in the Americas.”

 NPE, a triennial show, returns for the first time since its 2021 installment was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic in a five-day run May 6-10, 2024, in Orlando, Fla.  

It will have seven technology zones: Advanced Manufacturing Zone, Bottle Zone, Business Solution Zone, Materials Science Zone, Moldmaking Zone, Recycling & Sustainability Zone, and the Packaging Zone.

"NPE2024 is made for the plastics industry,” PLASTICS COO Glenn Anderson said. “NPE is our forum, our community, our showroom, our global marketplace and our platform to do business, learn, connect and be inspired. We’re excited to get the entire industry together to advance our vision for sustainability and highlight the possibilities of plastics. No one in the plastics industry should miss the highly anticipated return of this event."
