With over 2,000 exhibitors across 1.1 million square feet — 350 of which are new to NPE®— there’s a lot to see and do. That means whether you’re eager to connect with industry trailblazers or want to explore cutting-edge technology NPE2024 delivers a truly “Made for You” experience.

Not sure where to start? Don’t worry, we’ve narrowed down the features, activities and opportunities you won’t find anywhere else.

1. Get tailored access like never before with new registration options

NPE2024 features an entirely new three-tier pass structure: Expo, Expo Plus and Expo Premier. In addition to giving you access to all five days of the trade show, each pass has their own exciting benefits.

The Expo Pass includes features like our Keynote sessions and Circularity Hub, while the Expo Plus and Expo Premier inform you of Market Trends from ICIS, Workforce Development and DEI Sessions and more. Plus, Expo Premier includes post-event recordings, ensuring you get access to these valuable insights for years to come.

If you didn’t take advantage of the Expo Plus or Expo Premier options during registration, not a problem — you can upgrade anytime. Check out the Fees & Deadlines page to learn more about the benefits of each pass and select the one that’s right for you.

2. Access unparalleled learning opportunities from plastics leaders 

There’s no shortage of educational features at NPE2024. We’re thrilled to welcome all attendees to the Spark Stages sessions, highlighting Bottling, Sustainability and Innovation, running across the show floor.  

Both the Sustainability and Innovation stages are brand new to NPE®. The Sustainability Stage will focus on the plastic industry’s efforts in boosting the circular economy, while the Innovation Stage will feature the newest advancements for plastics across the marketplace.   

In addition to the stages, NPE2024 is hosting exciting workshops like the 3D Printing Workshop for Plastics Processors and Seminarios Latinamericanos (offered entirely in Spanish). Plus, for the first time, NPE® will include two keynote sessions with incredible speakers. With all this and so much more, there’s no shortage of sessions to ignite your interest.

3. Attend the inaugural NPE Opening Party 

Now who doesn’t love a good party? After a six-year hiatus, we’re kicking things off in style at the Opening Party! Funky pop tunes from the high-energy dance band Pop Rocks will keep the fun going all night long. There’s also an open bar, delicious food, games and a complimentary shuttle service.  

It’s the perfect opportunity to meet up with old friends, make new ones and have some fun. Don’t miss the biggest plastics celebration yet!
