WASHINGTON, DC, U.S.A., January 14, 2013: SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Association has named Marketing Design Group (MDG) to be the marketing agency for the NPE2015 international plastics exposition, it was announced today by Brad Williams, SPI’s director of marketing and sales for trade shows and conferences.

For NPE2015, the agency will provide strategic consulting, branding, exhibitor marketing, website development, print and digital advertising, media negotiations, direct mail promotion, and international attendee acquisition. Exhibitor sales will be carried out by NaylorCMG, which provided this service for the previous NPE in 2012.

“MDG is the leading trade show marketing firm, with 35 years of experience promoting some of the most successful events in the country,” said Mr. Williams. “The agency’s expertise will expand SPI’s ability to communicate the unique value of NPE2015 across the full range of media, as well as to the many vertical audiences with a need to know about plastics technologies and business opportunities.” MDG already works with ten of the top 100 events listed by Trade Show Executive magazine, among them world-scale, machinery-focused trade shows, according to Kimberly Hardcastle-Geddes, president of MDG.
