The Plastics Technology Expo is a trade show created to connect the entire North American plastics market under one roof. PTXPO features a robust, pavilioned exhibit hall, free education, and countless networking opportunities.
PTXPO will take place March 29-31, 2022, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, ll. After 2022, the show will be scheduled every spring, but will not take place during NPE years.
Though the Midwest is the hub of plastics manufacturing, there hasn’t been a major industry event in the area since 2009. PTPXO’s research revealed that plastics processors are eager to reconnect in this thriving region.
