We asked. Our industry SHOUTED.
And we not only listened, we took action.
Based on professional research and the success from the 2022 inaugural event, we learned that members of the plastics processing community desire and support a large-scale in-person trade show and knowledge-sharing event.
PTXPO's show floor is nearly 70% SOLD for 2025.
Join the premier event that...
and encompasses the entire plastics processing supply chain sphere from start to finish.
and brings us together every year, under one roof to receive hands-on learning about new equipment and services.
and is in the epicenter of North American manufacturing, Chicago, making it convenient and simple to convene with our peers, prospects and partners.

Then imagine being able to show off your organization’s newest equipment, products and services to that entire crowd, at one time! That's who PTXPO delivers: plastics processing professionals whom we reach on a monthly cadence through our magazines and digital media products.
Only PTXPO can harness the power of Gardner Business Media's three major plastics brands and deliver qualified buyers with one long and wide promotional reach.
One thing that differentiates PTXPO from other shows out there is the consciousness and the connection we have with show management.
