T he “I”s are dotted and the “t”s are crossed. It’s time for PaperWeek. From January 29 until February 1, Montreal’s Palais des Congrs will be filled with more than 12 000 delegates eager to see the latest in equipment and services offered by the 450 EXFOR exhibitors. Other choices include catching up on the latest technical innovations in one of the more than 30 scheduled PAPTAC technical sessions or learning about the issues facing in the industry in one of the CPPA’s Open Forums.
The complete technical program along with all the scheduled social events are detailed in the following pages. Following the realignment of the sessions in 2000, in 2001, the sessions will start Tuesday morning with the last ones scheduled for Thursday afternoon. The Gala will again be held Wednesday evening at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel. EXFOR will be open Tuesday through Thursday from 10:00 until 18:00 on Tuesday and Wednesday and will close at 16:00 on Thursday.
The Open Forums will begin Monday morning at 09:30 with the State of the Industry address at the Bonaventure Hilton Hotel. Two Forums — Paper Recycling and Packaging — will be held Monday afternoon at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel.
There will also be two Forums on Tuesday morning: Certification and The Future of Paper. (This should tie in well with PaperWeek’s theme in 2001 — Paper: A timeless medium.) Both these Forums will be held at the Bonaventure Hilton. Tuesday afternoon, the Communication Papers Open Forum will be held at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel. To wrap up the week, the Wednesday morning Forum will discuss Building blocks for environmental sustainability. It will be at the Bonaventure Hilton. Wednesday afternoon at the Queen Elizabeth, the Market Pulp session completes the roster of Open Forums.
Although it’s impossible for delegates to be everywhere, The Reporter’s staff will cover most events so delegates will always be in the know. Pick up a copy of The Reporter, Pulp & Paper Canada, Les Papetires du Qubec or the 2001 Canadian pulp, paper and board mill map at our EXFOR booth (603). A very popular attraction at the booth last year, the world’s smallest paper machine — The Eagle — should be making a return appearance. The magazines and Reporter may also be picked up from one of the numerous baskets in the Palais. Of course, The Reporter is delivered bright and early to more than 20 Montreal area hotels during PaperWeek. The 2001 Pulp & Paper Canada Annual Directory will also be available for purchase at our booth.
