The organiser of NPE 2021 announced the cancellation of the NPE 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic. NPE 2021 was scheduled to take place on May 17-21 in Orlando, Florida. The exhibition’s organiser, the Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS), said that it places the health and safety of its members, exhibitors, staff, and the attendees as its highest priority.


After consultation with medical and legal experts, Officers of the Board, the NPE executive committee, exhibitors, and the association membership, the PLASTICS Board of Directors decided to cancel the in-person components of NPE2021. Following extensive review, it has been determined that it is not possible to hold the planned event and also provide a safe environment at that time and location.  


While it admits being disappointed by the circumstances that led to this decision, PLASTICS knows that the plastics industry is strong and resilient. 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.
