Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Specialty Papers 2010 begins in just two weeks. This second joint TAPPI and Pira International event, set for November 10-11 in Chicago, Ill., features 18 presentations from leading companies such as Suntech Resources, Hewlett Packard, Neenah Paper, and many others.

According to the upcoming Pira International report on The Future of Specialty Paper 2015, "the U.S. is the biggest single market for specialty papers, followed by China, Japan, and Germany, with a vast potential in untapped consumer demand in the emerging markets."

Specialty Papers 2010 attendees will emerge with a better understanding of how to capitalize on this forecast and to recover from the economic downturn. Building on last year's interactive and highly informative launch event, this year's conference will cover: global market trends; insights into how to improve the manufacturing process, reduce costs, and increase competitiveness; the latest technology developments and the forecast for sustainability and LCA.

New for this year, each day of Specialty Papers 2010 will feature a "Hot Topics Roundtable Lunch" where attendees can discuss t issues that truly affect the industry. Participants will have the opportunity to submit the topics in advance. Please send thoughts and ideas to Barbara Rojas at barbara.rojas@pira-international.com.
