The Real Reasons Why Exhibitors Are Excited for Space Draw and NPE2024

Jan 27, 2023

Next May, some of the boldest minds and creative thinkers in the world will gather in Orlando, Florida, for NPE2024: The Plastics Show. This triennial event convenes the entire plastics industry to help companies drive major growth, leverage new innovations, and work towards a more sustainable economy.

By now, your company has likely applied to exhibit at NPE2024 since the selection process for booth location takes place next month. However, if you’re still on the fence, there are plenty of reasons to apply to exhibit at NPE2024 today. Here are our top three:

1. NPE is Where Business Gets Done

NPE is the largest plastics tradeshow in the Americas. With 1.2 million square feet of exhibit space and more than 50,000 buyers and potential partners expected to be at NPE2024, you’ll have the chance to connect with leaders who are responsible for everything from purchasing and distribution to those in sustainability and environmental affairs.

In fact, the 2,000+ exhibiting companies that will be at NPE2024 will have access to this audience:

  • 90% of attendees are buyers from unique companies
  • 50% are in management or C-suite roles
  • 71% of attendees are decision-makers or influencers
  • 32% have purchasing budgets of $1 million or higher

If you’re looking to get your product or company in front of any of these groups, you couldn’t ask for a better place to be than NPE2024. On top of that, 62% of countries worldwide will be represented, offering a global approach to the showcasing exhibitors. 

2. This event is MADE FOR YOU

The theme for NPE2024 is “MADE FOR YOU” because the event is designed with intentionality to help each attendee and exhibitor achieve their goals.

For example, the physical environment is being reimagined to create optimal space for networking and spontaneous business conversations. What’s more, there are six distinct technology zones, including advanced manufacturing, bottling, robotics and automation, flexible and rigid packaging, and more where potential buyers can meet with exhibitors who can help solve their toughest challenges.

Additionally, the NPE2024 program will include a diverse set of thought leaders who will share insights and proven best practices that can help businesses streamline workflows and accelerate growth.

A Lot Has Changed

When the doors open on May 6, 2024, it will have been six years since the last NPE was held. In that time, technology has evolved exponentially, and companies have dramatically changed how they operate. That means NPE2024 is an unprecedented opportunity for exhibiting companies to showcase their latest innovations to prospective buyers who are eager to invest in the next phases of growth for their organizations.

Space is Limited…Apply to Exhibit Now

The clock is ticking until we reach In-Person Space Draw (the exhibitor-only event where companies select booth locations on the exhibitor floor) on February 27, 2023. So if you haven’t reserved your space to exhibit at NPE2024, don’t miss out—this will be the biggest NPE event ever.

If you have applied to exhibit but haven’t registered for the In-Person Space Draw, be sure to register now before it’s too late.
