Organizers of other plastics trade shows aren't rushing into the void created by NPE leaving Chicago for Orlando, Fla.
We have no plans to enter the U.S. market, said Anne Meerboth-Maltz, public relations director for Messe Dusseldorf GmbH, organizers of Germany's massive K show.
The world's largest trade show will take place in Germany next year, she added.
A similar reaction came from Plastics News publisher Tony Eagan, who said the publication which has organized the Plastics Encounter events has no plans to do a show in Chicago.
Officials with Canon Communications LLC which hosts the Plastec trade shows, including a Midwest stop in nearby Rosemont, Ill. did not return phone calls.
