NPE2024 To Feature Technical Seminars in Spanish on Plastics Technology and Circular Economy

Press release submitted on behalf of the Plastics Industry Association

The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS), along with Tecnología de Plástico and its sister publications, announced two technical seminars in Spanish during NPE2024: The Plastics Show, called Seminarios Latinoamericanos. NPE2024, which will take place May 6-10, 2024 in Orlando, Florida, is the largest and most influential global plastics industry event in the United States.

Produced by PLASTICS, NPE’s educational program has been supported by Tecnología de Plástico and its sister publications since 2006 providing technical seminars in Spanish for attendees from Latin America. “Around 1,000 Latin American entrepreneurs have benefited from our technical seminars entirely in Spanish during NPE over the years. For NPE2024 we have created two integrated curriculums that dive into topics, such as the evolution of plastic technologies, strategies to improve energy efficiency, innovative methods for circularity, forecasts about recycling and much more,” said Laura Florez, editor-in-chief of Tecnología de Plástico.

“The sessions in Spanish will take place on May 7 and 8 during the week of NPE.  These sessions will give attendees the possibility of combining their visit to NPE2024 with updated and carefully selected content in their own language. The sessions will also provide attendees with the opportunity to exchange ideas and contacts with other industry leaders, yet another reason to make your trip to Orlando worthwhile!” concluded Florez.

Every three years, NPE offers the plastics industry a global platform to highlight innovation in an exhibit hall with more than 1.1 million net square feet of exhibit space at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. NPE2024 will offer opportunities for everyone in the industry, even those just starting their career.

The Seminarios Latinoamericanos are also sponsored by FIMIC, HUSKY, Milliken, Jomar and SUKANO. For more information on NPE2024: The Plastics Show and to register, visit
