Premier technical and business forecasting event offers only chance in 2019 to participate in a peer-reviewed, non-commercial format

ATLANTA (April 3, 2019) – Conference presentations are currently being requested for TissueCon 2019, October 1– 4, in Orlando, FL. Deadline for submission is Tuesday, April 30, 2019.

Co-produced by two leading tissue authorities, TAPPI and Fastmarkets RISI, TissueCon 2019 aligns technical content supported by TAPPI’s more than 100-years of driving industry innovation with Fastmarkets RISI’s 30-plus years reporting and analyzing the global tissue and paper markets. Created in 2017, the conference was renamed TissueCon this year to better represent the growing value of its comprehensive technical information, as well as its superior market analysis and intelligence.

TissueCon 2019 is the only non-commercial, peer-reviewed Tissue industry conference being held in North America this year,” noted TAPPI’s Tissue Division Manager Robert Dawson and Fastmarkets RISI’s Portfolio Director Mike Jeapes. “With an expanded technical and business forecasting focus for 2019, our goal is to surface, examine and ideally solve the very issues that are keeping tissue technical professionals and executives up at night.”
