Attendance for NPE 2015 continued to climb on Tuesday, and the numbers remain far ahead of the pace of the last NPE in 2012.
Registrations for NPE as of 4 p.m. on Tuesday hit 64,517, according to the Society of the Plastics Industry Inc., the show organizer.
At NPE 2012 in Orlando registrations on the second day reached 51,200, according to Plastics News archives.
SPI had predicted that 60,000 visitors would attend the show this year, but that appears to have been a very conservative estimate.
Registrations are still behind the pace of the 2000 show, which set the record at an estimated 90,000 visitors. By the second day of that show registrations had hit 83,451, according to PN archives.
