Connect with Leaders Across Every Link in the Supply Chain

PLASTEC Minneapolis connects you with top industry experts. But that's true of other trade shows. What sets PLASTEC Minneapolis apart is that it's combined with four other complementary events. That means you have a chance to circulate outside your usual network and discover how other companies across industries are solving their end-to-end manufacturing challenges, from packaging and plastics to AI and automation.

The heart of this show is not only about helping you connect with design and manufacturing suppliers, but also with industry leaders in plastics manufacturing, packaging, automation, robotics, medical technology, and more.

What Attendees Are Saying

"Powerful opportunity to meet with potential business partners throughout the whole two days of the show."
Mitch Zoch, NW Etch

"Great balanced mix of equipment, service and related vendors in a highly interactive environment who were segmented or clustered into market or application specific areas of the large vendor hall. Good organization in this regard and excellent mix of people from around the nation. Already looking forward to next year!"
Thomas Smertneck, Energy Aspects, LLC

"It was a lively environment, teeming with bright ideas and energetic conversations. I talked to the perfect potential supplier (whom I did not know even existed before the event) and am now in a potential deal with them."
Jim Brickweg, Epien Medical
