NPE2018: The Plastics Show Officially Kicked Off
Attendees from Around the World Convene to Uncover All that Plastics Has to Offer
NPE2018: The Plastics Show (formerly „National Plastic Exhibition“) officially kicked off. The Opening Ceremony included remarks from Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs, Plastics Industry Association (Plastics) President and CEO William R. Carteaux, Plastics Chair of the Board of Directors Wylie Royce and NPE2018 Chair Glenn Anderson. This year’s show will complement the business transactions and relationships made on the show floor with educational opportunities for attendees. New to NPE are the Plastics Leadership Summit and Re|focus Sustainability & Recycling Summit, two co-located educational events for sustainability and C-suite executives, respectively.
“We’ve intentionally designed programming for attendees who’ve expressed interest in expanded educational opportunities at NPE. We’ve created the Plastics Leadership Summit and co-located the annual Re|focus Sustainability & Recycling Summit to bolster on-site learning,” said William R. Carteaux, president and CEO of PLASTICS. “We also announced a 100 percent waste diversion goal to further our industry’s commitment to the environment.”
This week, more than 2,100 exhibiting companies will showcase innovations in plastics in the 1.2 million square feet of exhibit space on the tradeshow floor. More than 11,000 international attendees representing the plastics industry from 110 countries. The triennial trade show’s theme is “We’ve got it covered.” Over the next week, attendees in Orlando, Fla. will uncover innovation, business intelligence and opportunity, as they gain exclusive access to the people, processes, science and ideas that are shaping the future of plastics.
