Who among us does not carry their “life” around with them in the form of a smart phone, allowing instant access to the internet, email, and the like. And now you can carry around more than 1.1 million ft2 of trade-show exhibit space in the palm of your hand (or in your lap, if you prefer a tablet).

It’s not too early to start planning for NPE2018: The Plastics Show, May 7-11 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. And the Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) can help you start the planning process now. Just go to apps on your smart device, search for NPE2018, and download the show’s official app. It’ll help you navigate around the Convention Center; get up-to-the-minute details on all NPE2018 events, conference sessions, speakers, and exhibit highlights; and search for the exhibitors and products you want to see.

With the app, you’ll have access to:

  • Floor Plans: Explore the booth layout of NPE2018, in both the South and West Buildings.
  • Exhibitor Listings: Find complete exhibitor listings with booth numbers, company profiles, staff info, and product categories. You can search by name or product category.
  • Education Conferences/Sessions: Get information about the nine education conferences/workshops with complete schedules, descriptions, and speaker details. View by date, type, program, or speaker.
  • My Show Planner: Keep a detailed view of “Your NPE2018” just for you. Save your favorite and/or must-see exhibitors, events, and education sessions in My Show Planner. The show app syncs to your online My Show Planner on the NPE2018 site, so any changes or updates will be current in both areas.
  • Show Info & Announcements: Find everything you need to know about NPE2018, including show hours, registration details, shuttle schedules, and new announcements.
  • Social Media: You’ll be able to stay connected with the latest posts, news feeds, photos, and videos about #NPE2018.

I’ve downloaded the app myself and found it useful. I think you will too.
