    How is the selection order for booth space determined?

    Per the NPE2024 Exhibit Space & Sponsorship Assignment Guidelines, Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) member companies will select space prior to non-member companies during the NPE2024 Space Draw based on each company’s NPE show history designation.   

    Booth assignments will begin with member companies holding the highest NPE show history designation (Member 30) to PLASTICS members with the lowest NPE show history designation (Member 0), followed by non-members with the highest NPE show history designation (Non-Member 30) to non-members with the lowest NPE show history designation (Non-Member 0). For more information on becoming a member of PLASTICS, please contact membership@plasticsindustry.org.  

    What if my company is not able to attend the NPE2024 Space Draw?

    While it is most beneficial for exhibitors to attend, we understand this isn’t always possible. As such, we offer options to ensure assignment of your company’s booth during the NPE2024 Space Draw: 

      • Concierge Service – For a nominal fee, we can pair you with a show management representative who will have a conversation with you in advance of Space Draw and contact you during your designated time to select your booth. For more information on this service, click here. 
      • Authorize a Non-Company Representative – If you know a colleague who will be attending the NPE2024 Space Draw and would like for them to select your company’s booth that is allowed and requires pre-approval by PLASTICS. To assign an authorized representative, please download, complete, and submit this form for approval by PLASTICS. 
      • If you do not have a company representative present at the NPE2024 Space Draw, NPE staff will select your company’s booth during your designated time based on the information provided on your company’s NPE2024 Space Application.
