NPE 2015, The International Plastics Showcase, will be held in Orlando, Florida from March 23 through the 27th. It’s a great opportunity to learn about current trends and see live demonstrations of the latest technologies from every sector of the plastics industry. With more than 400 exhibits, it’s expected to be the biggest plastics showcase ever and a great chance to get up-close and personal with product experts in your field.
X-Rite and Pantone are thrilled to once again be part of the show. You’ll find us in the South Hall – X-Rite will be in Booth S10097, and Pantone in Booth S38036. You will also have a chance to win an Apple iPad. We are providing Pantone tags in both booths, and when you get a demo from both Pantone and X-Rite, you will be entered in the drawing.
You can also take advantage of our free guest passes for admission and shuttle service between the convention center and the host hotel.
