U.S. Entry Requirements
Now is the time to start planning your visit to The Plastics Technology Expo. Please be aware of possible COVID-19 requirements that may be in place for the March 28-30, 2023 event. For current information on the requirements for entry to the United States, please refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website. In addition, a visa may be required.
Although we have no influence or role in the approval or denial of visas, we want to help make the process as easy as possible. Be advised, current visa services and operations vary by country. Check your local U.S. Embassy and Consulate’s website for information regarding operating status and which visa services it is currently offering. Scheduling and obtaining visa appointments may require several months, so start your visa application and/or renewal as soon as possible.
Unofficial Vendor Warning
The Plastics Technology Expo team has received reports in the past from attendees and sponsors who have been solicited through various third parties to book hotel reservations in our chosen location. PTXPO is NOT working with a third-party housing company, and the only way to book a legitimate reservation through our room block is by contacting the hotels directly. The chosen hotel for our event will NOT reach out to individual companies to solicit reservations.
Additionally, numerous convention bureaus are reporting hundreds of complaints from trade show managers who are receiving similar reports from exhibiting companies who booked rooms through a “third party room broker” and ended up at sold out hotels with no reservations and no recourse for the payment of rooms. These brokers falsely imply they are affiliated with show management and secure deposits and/or full prepayment from exhibiting companies.
