The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) has announced that the officers of its Board, the NPE executive committee, exhibitors, and the association membership, the PLASTICS Board of Directors have decided the cancellation of the in-person components of NPE2021, scheduled for May 17–21, 2021, in Orlando, Florida due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Lack of Safety and Certainty Led to Event Cancellation


After extensive review, it has been determined that it is not possible to hold the planned event and provide a safe environment at that time and location, and therefore the in-person show must be cancelled.

While we are disappointed by the circumstances that led to this decision, we know that the plastics industry is strong and resilient,” says PLASTICS’ officer.

Over the past ten months, it has been leading the transformation of manufacturing processes and supply chain operations that deliver medical equipment and supplies to pharmaceutical companies, medical supply manufacturers, and healthcare workers, protecting first responders and frontline workers against the coronavirus. By bringing companies at the forefront of plastics manufacturing together in other ways, PLASTICS will continue to provide opportunities for the industry to unite to solve needs and reimagine how to meet tomorrow’s challenges.
