NPE2015 to Be the Largest NPE Ever

NPE2015 has surpassed the previous NPE record for exhibit space, it was announced today by SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Association, which produces the triennial NPE.

Based on the number of exhibitors thus far, booths will fill more than 1,041,000 net sq.ft. (96,712 m2 ) of exhibit space, the amount used at NPE2000, the largest NPE on the books until now. And with more companies anticipated, SPI expects an additional 10,000 sq. ft. (929 m2 ) to be occupied before the show floor opens on March 23, 2015.

Exhibiting companies cite the success of the previous NPE in 2012 and the ongoing surge of the plastics industry as reasons for their strong investment in NPE2015. For equipment companies this has resulted in larger booths in which to display and operate more machines. One such company, Milacron Inc., will have 24,600 sq.ft (2,285 m2 ) of space, constituting the largest booth in NPE history. Overall, more than 600 companies will have equipment at their booths and over 400 will be operating systems. Often their exhibits will feature multiple machines—some of them completely integrated manufacturing cells—running simultaneously.

“With so many exhibitors operating equipment, the show floor will be a dynamic panorama of manufacturing in action,” said Gene Sanders, SPI’s senior vice president of trade shows and conferences. “Visitors will encounter a host of opportunities to see demonstrations of the latest technologies and materials up close and to interact with equipment and product experts. It will offer buyers the rare opportunity to test before they invest.”
