Companies planning to exhibit at NPE 2012, the plastics exposition, will get to select their exhibit space January 12 through 14, 2011. The booth-space drawing, to take place at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel and Conference Center in Orlando, also will give exhibitors their first look at the trade show’s first new venue in four decades. The triennial NPE had been a Chicago staple, and now for the first time will be held at Orlando's Orange County Convention Center.

The show’s sponsor, the Society of the Plastics Industry, has secured a block of rooms at the hotel. For more information about the space draw, go to or call (866) 996-6338.
