The NPE2018: The Plastics Show! app and official social media accounts are great ways to stay connected and informed during the show. Here are some pro tips for using them to your advantage:

  1. Always use the official show hashtag #NPE2018, so you can connect with other attendees and share your experience with the industry.
  2. Build your schedule right into the NPE2018 app. It syncs with your Map Your Show account, too, so all of your events and sessions will be updated wherever you are and whatever device you’re using.
  3. Get updates from our social media feeds. We’ll be sending live tweets and other updates via social throughout the show, so follow us on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and YouTube to stay in the know.
  4. Never get lost. Our app has show floor maps and booth information; use these to easily find where you’re going.
  5. Use the app to look back on session handouts and presentations. If exhibitors make presentations and handouts available, you can access them wirelessly through the app during a session, or afterward if you want to refresh.
