Washington — It's time to break in a new pair of walking shoes … registration has opened for NPE2018.
NPE, the largest plastics show in North America, is held every three years. The next show is scheduled for May 7-11, 2018, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.
The show is a major effort for the Washington-based Plastics Industry Association, which expects the 2018 event to draw more than 65,000 attendees from all segments of the plastics industry.

Exhibit space for NPE2018 has sold out, but show management is working to open additional space.
This will mark the third NPE in Orlando. New features at the 2018 show will include:
• Bottle Zone, for companies that work with PET preforms, molds, labeling, filling, closures, design and inspection equipment in bottle and container manufacturing for beverages, pharmaceuticals, home products and personal care.
• 3D & 4D Zone, focusing on trends and technologies in prototyping.
• Re|focus Sustainability & Recycling Summit. This will be the third year for this annual event, but the first time it will be co-located with an NPE show.
