Originally scheduled in March, Tissue World Miami 2020 was postponed due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak and has been rescheduled for Nov. 11-13, 2020, at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
All existing exhibitor and delegate bookings will move automatically to the new dates. Attendees typically include suppliers to the tissue industry, tissue converters, integrated tissue product makers, jumbo roll suppliers and retailers and distributors.
Working in tandem with the MBCC, the show organizers secured a tenancy for both the Tissue World Miami conference and exhibition that are set to run concurrently. The Informa Markets team currently is discussing the revised dates with speakers and exhibitors with the expectation of securing their participation in November.
Holding the show later in the year “gives the market time to recover as demand catches up,” says Agnes Gehot, deputy event director, Informa Markets.
“The rescheduled date provides clarity and ensures we have time and space to deliver the same fantastic event we promised, providing a safe and secure environment conducive to business, networking and professional education for the tissue production industry.”
With the conference theme of “Ready for Reinvention, Ripe for Disruption: Will the 20s Roar for Tissue?” the conference and exhibition are expected to draw 200 exhibiting companies and more than 2,500 attendees from nearly 70 countries to South Florida.
Registration for North America’s largest gathering of the global tissue trade is still open.
The Tissue World Miami conference brings fresh, critical and creative perspectives on America’s tissue business. Conference presenters will offer insight on the major themes of resilience, operational game changers and buyer expectations.
Some of the topics include supply-side volatility and risk with a focus on fibre supply, human risk factors such as attracting and retaining skills, cybersecurity and the vulnerabilities that increase with greater connectivity, change drivers such as sustainability, and trends and forecasts.
