Plastics USA 2004 will take place Sept. 28-30, 2004, on Level 3 of the East Building (also known as the Lakeside Center) of McCormick Place, in Chicago. The Society of the Plastics Industry, Inc. (SPI) sponsors the triennial Plastics USA shows. More than 450 companies will exhibit space, and more than 15,000 visitors are expected. Scheduled mid-way between NPE 2003 and NPE 2006, Plastics USA 2004 will provide the largest U.S. showplace for new plastics processing technologies between these international expositions. More equipment will be in operation on the show floor than at any other North American plastics show in 2004. Situated at the hub of North America's $375-bil/year plastics marketplace, Plastics USA 2004 will provide visitors to the show with access to technologies, business opportunities, and decision-makers from throughout the Americas.
