TAPPI has announced it will bring the PaperCon, TissueCon, NETInc and Women’s Summit conferences together for one event in 2021.

The conferences are now scheduled for April 25-28, 2021 at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, Georgia.

“After much discussion, we know this is the right thing to do for our attendees, exhibitors, speakers, partners and our industry,” says Larry Montague, president and CEO of TAPPI, in a statement.

“It is crucial to focus on your families and helping your companies succeed this year. By co-locating these events, we are creating one, interactive expo for you to connect and find the solutions you need to move your companies forward after this crisis.”

PaperCon is considered the world’s largest technical conference for the paper and packaging industry. TissueCon is a non-commercial, peer-reviewed event for the tissue industry, and NETInc is a non-wovens technical conference developed by engineers and technologists. Women’s Summit addresses key topics integral to women in the industry.

In 2021, PaperCon will continue to present key issues affecting mills, new innovations and opportunities to connect with industry professionals. Attendees can expect a full technical and management program, training opportunities and popular programs such as the Hot Topics Breakfast, New Technology Showcase, Roundtable Discussions, and Women in Industry and Young Professional specific sessions.

“With these events coming together, attendees will experience a comprehensive conference including not just one, but three industry segments,” says Montague. “They may discover new insights that may not have been possible before with the conferences in one location. This will be a momentous event for TAPPI in April 2021.”
