Traveling to the United States for NPE2024: Everything You Need to Know

Jul 7, 2023

For all our visitors coming from abroad, we are thrilled to welcome you back to NPE: The Plastics Show on 6-10 May 2024!

It has been more than five years since industry professionals last came together at NPE. While the global economy has shifted, the excitement for the return of NPE2024 has not. A premier tradeshow for the entire plastics ecosystem, NPE is where colleagues from around the world gather to share new innovations, tackle international plastics challenges and build a stronger, more sustainable future.

As you prepare to join us in Orlando, here are a few things you need to know in advance.

Experience the Largest Show for Plastics Business in the Americas

NPE will grant you prime access to suppliers from the United States, Canada and Mexico, and showcase international businesses from Europe, Asia and the rest of the world!

Businesses at every scale, from global enterprises to local providers will be there — it is the perfect opportunity to make new connections and see the entire plastics ecosystem. NPE2024 will also expand on plastics industry education and will feature new keynote speakers and networking opportunities.

Anyone that’s in the PLASTICS industry should come to the show. It’s the premier event, it’s once every 3 years, it’s international and domestic — it’s something you don’t want to miss. There’s something for everybody.

Greg Gesswein – CEO, Gesswein Company

Visa Resources and Delegation Information

We encourage all global attendees to start planning your trip to Orlando now! To ensure a smooth visit for all our international visitors, NPE has multiple resources to help you along the process:

If your organization plans on attending the trade show as a delegation, which requires a minimum of 15 attendees, or if you’d like to find a delegation to attend NPE2024 with, learn more at NPE.org/international.

Benefits for International Attendees

All non-U.S. attendees will gain exclusive access to our International Business Lounge, where we will provide translation services, seating, meeting areas and refreshments. We will also hold international educational sessions, open to all visitors.

If Spanish is your preferred language, make plans to attend the Seminarios Latinoamericanos presented by Tecnología del Plástico on 7-8 May 2024. Sessions highlighting advanced technologies in plastics processing, the circular economy and sustainability will be presented entirely in Spanish.

We Will See You in Orlando!
