NPE2012 Will Take Place in Orlando

NPE2012, the next edition of the triennial international plastics exposition, will take place April 1-5, 2012 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, it was announced by SPI, The Plastics Industry Trade Association, Washington, DC, USA. The move marks a dramatic change for the largest plastics industry event in North America. Founded by SPI in 1946, NPE has taken place at Chicago’s McCormick Place since 1971, and that venue has been linked with NPE in the minds of industry people around the world. SPI’s leadership selected Orlando upon the recommendation of the NPE2012 Executive Committee after a systematic comparison of possible venues. The study revealed that holding NPE2012 in Orlando would provide big reductions in the chief expenses incurred by exhibitors and attendees. These reductions could save the two groups an average of: 48% on utilities for booths; 19% on on-site hauling (“drayage”) and rigging services for exhibitors; 23% on lodging; and 11% on travel. The savings on travel from the U.S. Midwest – a key plastics manufacturing region – with Chicago at its heart—would be even greater: 19%
