Join Europe’s foremost industry leaders and experts to gain insight into the latest market trends at our 23rd annual European Conference. The program will span three days and include extensive discussion of the latest trends, challenges and innovations in Europe’s pulp, paper, tissue and packaging sectors.

Across the three day online event we will cover key industry trends and topics such as the accelerated growth of E-Commerce due to the Covid-19 pandemic, new uses for sustainable fiber-based packaging, the decline in graphic papers and what that means for global capacity changes and the availability of raw materials as we follow China’s evolving waste paper ban.

The conference will also feature more executive insight than ever before brought to you by two CEO panels and a series of executive interviews, regional and global RISI forecasts in tissue, containerboard, fiber and others, and a keynote speech from the European CEO of the Year.

Fastmarkets RISI is pleased to announce that the 2021 PPI Awards will be held digitally in conjunction with the conference. Please head to the PPI Awards tab on the website for more details of how to enter.
