Despite the double whammy of a subdued economy and aggressive weather (when one would wish it the other way around), International PaperWeek 2003 exceeded expectations. The event attracted 10,371 participants from 25 countries to the various events of the PAPTAC technical sessions and the EXFOR product exposition. Also, the FPAC and PPPC Open Forums attracted another 1,355 individuals, for a grand total of 11,726 participants at PaperWeek International 2003. There were 448 companies (108 new exhibitors) that exhibited at the Palais des Congrs in Montreal.
As usual, PaperWeek provided the opportunity for high-quality exchange of science and technical information in the form of session meetings and presentations. It is important to recognize this event as a valuable opportunity to improve and strengthen the industry in the future.
“We were extremely pleased with the level of industry support attained for both the technical program and the exhibition of new technologies”, stated Rob Wood of the Pulp and Paper Technical Association of Canada. “Our Association’s standing committees are to be commended for their tremendous efforts in organizing the sessions over the past several months. They certainly met their objectives, having brought back value to the mills in terms of advanced technologies, cost control measures and ways of improving productivity.”
Plans are already under way for 90th Annual Meeting of PAPTAC and the 46th edition of EXFOR. PaperWeek International 2004 will be held in Montreal next January 26-29.
See you there!#text2#
