ORLANDO, FLA. (April 17, 5:10 p.m. ET) — The Society of Plastics Industry Inc. said 55,359 people registered to attend the four-day NPE2012 in Orlando, up 26 percent from the five-day show in Chicago in 2009. Since NPE2009 was held in the gloom of the Great Recession, and these days manufacturing is humming, comparing total attendance numbers from 2009 and 2012 is like comparing apples — or in this case, Chicago-style deep dish pizza — to oranges, Florida’s leading export.
