Tissue360° Forum Returns to TAPPI’s PaperCon 2014
TAPPI will be organizing another tissue program focusing on technical advances in tissue making, converting and tissue education as part of PaperCon 2014, April 27-30 in Nashville, TN.
“We received fantastic feedback from our first Tissue360° Forum in Atlanta,” says Larry N. 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 over half 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 to this demand by organizing the first Tissue360° Forum in April, 2013. The forum attracted a large crowd in 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. A Call for Papers is underway for this year’s program. If you’re interested in submitting an abstract for consideration, or learn more about the Tissue360° Forum Call for Papers.
