Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) member companies will select space prior to non-member companies based on each company’s NPE show history. The assignments will begin with member companies holding a 29 NPE show history designation (Member 29 being the highest) descending to member companies with no show history (Member 0) followed by non-member companies (Non-Member 29 descending to Non-Member 0).

What about attendance?
We anticipate more than 55,000 attendees will join us in-person in Orlando.
Who can attend the show?
Because we encourage attendees to bring their families to Orlando, anyone can attend. We do, however, have some age restrictions at the show itself and during setup. 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 accomodations during the show?
Expovision is the only Official Hotel Reservation Office for NPE2021. Hotel reservations will open to exhibitors June 1, 2020.
SCAM ALERT: Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS), producer of NPE2021, has received several reports of invalid third-party hotel room scammers contacting our exhibitors. These hotel booking scammers have no affiliation with NPE2021. Expovision has negotiated the lowest rates in Orlando, FL for NPE2021 and only requires a one-night room rate plus tax deposit. Any company requiring full prepayment should be viewed with extreme suspicion.
We strive to protect our exhibitors from conducting business with room poachers. If you are solicited by any group other than Expovision, please contact email@example.com.
For questions regarding hotels, please contact: NPE2021 Hotel Reservation Office (Expovision) Toll-Free: (866) 823-2876; Phone: +1 (703) 205-0235 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
