Attendance for NPE 2015 Surpassing Expectations
Registrations for NPE as of 4 p.m. on Tuesday hit 64,517, according to the Society of the Plastics Industry Inc., the show organizer. SPI had conservatively estimated that 60,000 visitors would attend the show this year. However, registrations are still behind the pace of the 2000 show in Chicago, which set the record at an estimated 90,000 visitors.
Meanwhile, the Society of the Plastics Industry Inc. has signed contracts to keep NPE at the Orange County Convention Center in 2018 and 2021, and the trade association also has reserved dates for NPE 2024 in Orlando. The news comes as NPE 2015 kicks off in Orlando this week, this being the second NPE in Orlando; the first was in 2012.
