Who can attend the show?

No person under 16 will be admitted in the exhibit halls during the installation and dismantling periods. All people in the exhibit halls must have proper registration credentials. Students 14-16 years of age will be permitted in the exhibit halls during show hours under the supervision of an adult with proper credentials.
Show management does reserve the right to host student groups of any age on the show floor with appropriate supervision and guidance during show hours. No individual exceptions will be made. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org to host a student group.
Are photographers/videographers allowed in the exhibit halls for NPE2021?
Yes, but…exhibitors have the right to authorize all video and photographs of their booth, equipment and display materials. Should an exhibitor object to their display being photographed (still or in motion), photographs of that display will be prohibited. Show Management has appointed Official Photographers to provide commercial photographs of the exhibits. No other commercial photographer/videographer will be admitted to the exhibits unless special arrangements are made with show management.
What about hotel accommodations during the show?
Expovision is the only Official Hotel Reservation Office for NPE2021. Hotel reservations opened to exhibitors on June 1, 2020. You may access the NPE2021 Hotel Reservation system through your NPE2021 Exhibitor Dashboard.

Any company requiring full prepayment should be viewed with extreme suspicion.

How can I tell if something might be a scam?
Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS), producer of NPE2021, has received several reports of third-party scammers contacting our attendees and exhibitors regarding hotel bookings and pre-registered attendee lists, with some even stating that NPE has been cancelled. These scammers have no affiliation with NPE2021.

It has also come to our attention that attendees and exhibitors have been receiving emails stating that NPE has been cancelled. This is not true—NPE2021 is being planned as scheduled, May 17–21, 2021. These emails are not coming from PLASTICS or NPE Show Management, and the companies sending these emails are not associated with PLASTICS in any way—they are scammers trying to sell bogus lists.
