NPE2018: The Plastics Show is the largest plastics show in North America that attracts plastics producers from around the world. This show has been the largest in history, with more than 2,180 exhibiting companies showcasing innovations in plastics in more than 1.2 million square feet of exhibit space on the tradeshow floor.
SIAPI was in “Bottle Zone”: the new sector that provided a comprehensive look at the trends, technical knowledge, innovations and suppliers that serve this booming sector of the plastics industry. With plastic bottles and jars representing approximately 75 percent of all plastic containers by weight and expenditures on food-and-beverages increasing 5 percent in the first quarter, growth in bottling manufacturing is taking hold in the U.S. and around the globe.
“We worked diligently to continue the tradition of innovation that NPE® is known for with features like our 80,000 square foot Bottle Zone and our expanded education programming,” said PLASTICS Vice President of Trade Shows and Marketing Susan Krys.
The triennial trade show’s theme was “We’ve got it covered.” Attendees in Orlando, Fla. spent the week uncovering innovation, business intelligence and opportunity, gaining exclusive access to the people, processes, science and ideas that are shaping the future of plastics.
