The Plastics Show Attendance Up by 1.7 Percent

Organizer Very Satisfied

NPE2018, hosted every three years by the Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS), concluded on May 11, wrapping up five very active days of commerce on the trade show floor and numerous new and returning educational programs that offered a glimpse into the future of plastics.

With 2174 exhibiting companies occupying more than 1.2 million net square feet of sold-out exhibit floor space, according to the organizers NPE2018 was the largest in show history.

NPE2018 attendance rose by 1.7 percent over that of NPE2015 to 56,034 confirmed registered attendees from almost 19,000 companies according to show data that were evaluated and validated by a third-party data analytics company.

49 percent of exhibiting companies and 27 percent of registrants came from outside of the United States representing 121 countries with 3,351 and 3,965 registrants from China and Latin America, respectively.

Exhibiting companies came from 35 nations with representatives from those companies hailing from 63 countries outside the United States. In descending order, the ten countries with the largest number of participating exhibiting companies were: China, Canada, Taiwan, Italy, Germany, India, France, Turkey, Switzerland and Austria.

According to numerous exhibiting companies, sales activity on the trade show floor was heavy from day one and continued through the week. “We had a tremendous amount of booth activity, with a lot of new visitors plus many existing customers who stopped by to see our latest innovations,” said Paul Caprio, president of KraussMaffei Group. “We also topped our lead count with over 1,200 leads versus about 900 from three years ago.”
