The 3rd Specialty Papers conference organised by Pira International in association with TAPPI is due to take place on 29 November – 1 December 2011 at the Dolce Bad Nauheim Hotel, Frankfurt, Germany, and is the only conference in Europe focusing solely on the specialty papers sector.
In recent years, the global economic downturn has been the most significant concern within the industry, and price rises in fibrous raw materials, chemicals and energy continued to impact specialty paper manufacturers by constricting margins. A thorough up-to-date overview of the markets, both globally and by region, will be covered at Specialty Papers Europe, including emerging trends.
Dr Graham Moore, Strategic Consultant, Pira International, who will also be providing insight into the continually evolving European specialty paper market at the conference, expressed the following in anticipation of the event:
“Specialty papers by their very nature are a diverse group of products manufactured by a wide range of companies. Personnel working in these companies often have little opportunity to meet and exchange ideas. The Pira/TAPPI Specialty Paper conference has successfully provided a focus for the disparate group of global manufacturers, suppliers and others involved in the supply chain to meet and network. This year's European event continues to successfully develop this aim.”
