Austria at North America’s Largest Plastics Trade Show

April 9, 2012

Record-breaking participation by Austrian plastics companies at NPE 2012 in Orlando  

Austria has been known as a plastics superpower for many years. This year’s National Plastics Exposition, NPE 2012 from April 1 – 5 in Orlando, Florida, proved once again the importance of plastics machinery and technologies from Austria. The Who’s Who of Austria’s plastics industry was represented: 13 exhibitors at the Austrian Pavilion , 21 individual exhibitors and 7 presentations in the conference program contributed to the largest Austrian participation in the history of the show. The Upper Austrian Cluster Network put the spotlight on Austria as the ideal plastics business location with their presentation on the ten top trends in the plastics industry not to miss .

The motto of this year’s triennial event „The Return of the Machines" was evident everywhere: More machinery on the exhibition floor and more machines in operation than three years ago at NPE 2009 in Chicago. 1,870 exhibitors and close to 55,000 attendees (up almost 30% over the last NPE 2009 in Chicago) traveled to NPE’s new venue, the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. International attendance was up 26% compared to 2009.
