NPE2012: Super Sunday in Orlando

Super Sunday will be a day of celebration for what is shaping up to be a successful NPE2012, according to Gene Sanders, senior vice president in charge of trade shows for SPI. "NPE2012 will be bigger and much more dynamic than our 2009 show, with significantly more exhibits, more machinery in operation, and greater attendance,” Sanders said. "At the same time, this show marks two historical milestones-the 75th anniversary of SPI and the first time NPE has been held in Orlando, after 40 years in Chicago.” The events planned for Super Sunday include: ? SPI's 75th Anniversary Golf Tournament This will take place at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Golf Club, whose courses have been used by LPGA titleholders. Scheduled from 8:00 am to 1:30 pm, the event costs USD 250 per person, which includes fees and cart, breakfast and awards luncheon, on-course refreshments, and sponsor giveaways. Profits will go to SPI's Future of Plastics Foundation and an Orlando charity. ? Brand-Owner Super Session with Panel Discussion Following a welcome and overview by SPI president and CEO William R. Carteaux, there will be four presentations by representatives of prominent companies: Life through Plastics in the Electronic Age (electronics/wireless industry); What's in Store for Plastics? (retail merchandising); Aerospace Horizons; and It's a Wrap! Innovation through Plastic Packaging. Open to all NPE2012 registrants, the event will take place from 1:00 to 4:45 pm at the Chapin Theater in the West Hall of the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC). ? American-Style BBQ This will be held from 4:30 to 6:00 pm outside the West building of the OCCC and is open to all NPE2012 registrants. Food and beverages are available on a cash and carry basis. ? OCCC Orientation Since the Orange County Convention Center will be new to virtually every NPE2012 participant, this event can assist in planning to make the most productive use of NPE show week. Held in the Chapin Theater in the West Hall of the OCCC, it will be open to all and immediately follow the Brand-Owner Super Session. ? SPI's 75th Anniversary Opening Gala and Plastics Hall of Fame Ceremony This formal, black-tie-optional event will include a reception and banquet, keynote address by Governor Huntsman, and induction ceremony for ten new members of the Hall of Fame. Tickets cost US $300 per person and $2,200 for a table of eight. The event will take place from 6:00 to 9:45 pm in the Sebastian J Ballroom of the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando.   Links to information and registration are available by visiting www.npe.org/attend and clicking on "Schedule at a Glance.”
