A number of raw material suppliers will offer customer service centres at the upcoming NPE2015 trade show in Orlando, Fla.


According to the Society of the Plastics Industry (SPI), which produces the SPE show, nine companies have committed to purchase space for the centres so far, and several more firms are in discussions with SPI to do so. The nine are The Dow Chemical Company, DSM Engineering Plastics, DuPont, Eastman Chemical Company, ExxonMobil Chemical Company, Formosa Plastics, LyondellBasell, PPG Industries, and Westlake Chemical Company.


The centers, accounting for over 62,000 square feet of floor space so far, “will enable NPE2015 visitors to meet with current or prospective material suppliers in settings conducive to discussion, information exchange, and relationship building,” SPI said. “Visitors will have the opportunity to engage with supplier executives, salespeople, or technical experts appropriate to their interests. Many of material suppliers will also be conducting private tours of the exhibit floor to showcase machines using their materials.”


NPE2015 is on track to be the largest NPE in years, SPI continued, and is poised to equal NPE’s largest event ever, NPE2000. “Over 950,000 square feet of space has already been secured, and the show is at 94 per cent of capacity,” SPI said. “In addition, more than 350 exhibitors report that they will be running equipment on the show floor.”


NPE2015 Registration and Housing is now open at www.npe.org. For more information on securing a customer service center meeting room, contact NPE Sales at exhibit@npe.org or 703.259.6132.


NPE2015 will take place Monday through Friday, March 23-27, 2015, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando,
