When paper and packaging professionals gather in Indianapolis, Indiana for PaperCon 2019 next May, they will have the unique opportunity to attend four additional technical events under the same roof. PaperCon will be co-located with TAPPI's popular nonwovens conference, NETInc, as well as the International Paper Physics Conference (IPPC), the Recycling Paper Board Technical Association's (RPTA) Production-Technical Seminar, and the TAPPI/IDCON Reliability & Maintenance technical sessions. These five high-powered events draw CEOs, mill managers, superintendents, scientists, process engineers, and suppliers from over 25 different countries and offer peer-reviewed technical sessions, multiple networking opportunities, special events, and exhibits. Attendees can attend all five technical programs for only one registration fee.

Developed by technical professionals and business leaders in the paper, board, and nonwovens industries, PaperCon's expert-led technical program offers learning opportunities on cutting-edge technologies, best practices and key issues and trends affecting the industry. The 10 topic-specific tracks provide tangible takeaways to solve many technical challenges and allow mill and other paper and packaging professionals the ability to customize their conference experience by attending only those sessions that best fit their needs. Tracks include: Papermaking Innovations and Additives, Fluid Mechanics, Coating & Graphic Arts, PIMA Management, Paperboard Recycling, Nonwovens, Reliability & Maintenance, Control Systems, Paper Physics, and Young Professionals.
