TAPPI, Atlanta, Ga., USA, will organize another tissue program to be held at its PaperCon 2014 Conference, scheduled for April 27-30 in Nashville, Tenn. The program will focus on technical advances in tissue making, converting, and on tissue education.

"We received fantastic feedback from our first Tissue360° Forum in Atlanta," says Larry Montague, president and CEO of TAPPI, "so we wanted to provide more of what tissue makers need. Several of our outstanding members have stepped up to organize another program this year."

The tissue market is growing globally, with private label growing faster than national brands. This is especially true in North America, where more than half of the new capacity has been structured sheet technology for private label customers. In Europe, dramatic new converting technologies have developed to improve tissue quality and performance. These trends are creating an increasing need for credible technical information and training.

TAPPI responded by organizing the first Tissue360° Forum in April, 2013. The forum attracted a large crowd to its three-day program of peer-reviewed non-commercial technical papers. The 2014 Tissue360° Forum will feature more of the same, with an emphasis on converting technologies and TAPPI courses for those who want to grow their knowledge of this dynamic segment. The editorial team from Tissue360° will assist TAPPI tissue experts in the development of the program content.

Tissue360° magazine is TAPPI's semi-annual print and online publication for the tissue and converting industry. More information about Tissue360° is available online. PaperCon is TAPPI's annual pulp and papermaking conference that attracts nearly 1,800 executives and technical professionals from around the world. It is the largest technical program in the world and the largest industry trade fair in North America. More information about PaperCon also is available online.
