A Strategic Partnership 

Founded in 1937, SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Association promotes growth in the $427 billion U.S. plastics industry. Representing nearly one million American workers in the third largest U.S. manufacturing industry, SPI delivers advocacy, market research, industry promotion, and the fostering of business relationships and zero waste strategies. SPI also owns and produces the international NPE trade show. All profits from NPE are reinvested into SPI’s industry services..

As the only trade association representing the business interests of plastics in the United States, SPI offers your company the stage to raise its visibility across the industry worldwide and across the supply chain. Strength in numbers combined with sector expertise—that has always been SPI’s hallmark and will continue to be so in the future.

Leadership Positioning

  • Positions of leadership for your company include the SPI National Board, the SPI Political Action Committee (SPI-PAC), and the newly forming Bioplastics Council and Nanotechnology Group.
  • Three leadership councils (equipment, material suppliers and processors), vertical industry groups, and a host of end-market manufacturers provide the networking forum and safe harbor that allows your company to be uniquely positioned in front of specific target audiences.

Business Development, Growth

  • NPE, the world's largest conference and technology exchange for the plastics industry is where the entire value chain comes every three years to get information on products, services and materials: Your company can be at the forefront with its exhibits, sponsorships, technical papers and theater presentations.
  • The Global Plastics Summit, organized in partnership with IHS Chemical, brings together decision makers, thought leaders, and technical experts from IHS Chemical, SPI, the plastics industry, oil and gas, and from many areas manufacturing. Promote your brand, products, and services by sponsoring a booth in the Solutions Showcase or by taking advantage of another of our diverse sponsorship opportunities. 

Taking Measure

With each element of the sponsorship your company would receive a predetermined use of attendee databases, and access to lead/data collection and RFID data collection. With all of the electronic advertisements and promotions, SPI would coordinate with your company to track and account for the inquiries.

A Long-Term Plan

Investing in SPI sponsorship provides your company with unique positioning to promote your corporate initiatives among the who’s-who of the U.S. plastics industry supply chain.
