International Plastics Showcase invades Orlando


The International Plastics Showcase kicked off it’s five day event at the Orange County Convention Center this morning. The event that will feature 60,000 visitors and 2000 exhibitors and is the most important convention in the world revolving around the plastics industry.

“The great size and international makeup of NPE2015 reflects the importance and value of plastics and plastics manufacturing in our world,” said Gene Sanders, SPI senior vice president of trade shows and conferences. “There will be more equipment on the show floor than at any previous NPE, more machinery in actual production, more opportunities to connect with designers and material suppliers, a more extensive conference program, and timely new exhibit features such as NPE3D, the Zero Waste Zone, IDSA’s Design Center, and the Startup Garage. In plain words, this will be a show that is not to be missed.”

One of the first events kicking off the convention was a “Pursuing Zero Waste Fashion Show” at the opening ceremony . Students from the Savannah College of Art and Design, designed the garments and accessories from recycled, reused, or re purposed plastics.

“We found the students at SCAD to be not only talented and creative but also very involved with environmental issues,” said Brad Williams, director of marketing and sales for SPI. “Their designs are vivid demonstrations that recycled plastics can gain new lives in many forms—both as purely utilitarian goods and as objects of beauty. The Pursuing Zero Waste Fashion Show at NPE2015 will add a new dimension to our industry mandate to reduce, reuse, and recycle the valuable materials that make up our products.”

We’ll have continuing coverage of the Convention as the week progresses…
