Plastics News focuses on commercial, financial, legislative and market-related developments worldwide that affect North American plastic product manufacturers and their suppliers and customers. PN is part of the Plastics News Global Group, comprising three print publications, four websites, multiple e-newsletters and several conferences and trade shows. The PN Global Group took shape after Crain’s purchase in July 2007 of the UK-based polymer publishing assets of Emap Communications Ltd. That added two established print publications – Plastics & Rubber Weekly and the monthly European Plastics News – to the stable, as well as several European events. The U.S. publication launched its PlasticsNews.com website in 1996, and today that audited site attracts more than 80,000 unique visitors per month. The company launched its bilingual Plastics News China eWeekly as a free e-mail newsletter in May 2005, along with a companion Plastics News China website that today attracts more than 15,000 unique visitors per month. Both products are offered in English and simplified Chinese. PN, which moved to Detroit, Mich., in 2013, also organizes several events, including its annual Executive Forum, Plastics in Medical Devices, and various other conferences.

Tradeshows remain a critical part of companies’ marketing strategies and 2021 planning is well underway. With many unknowns in front of us regarding the future of the tradeshow experience, we know this: the time is now for companies to take control of their tradeshow investment to drive the greatest return. Companies who take a wait-and-see approach, will fall short – while those that take steps to augment face-to-face with virtual experiences will win. Join Mary Scheibel of Trefoil Group and Dave Stamm of Stamm Media to experience virtual strategies that will differentiate your products, services and offer to drive audience engagement at NPE2021 and throughout your tradeshow season.
