How do I best reach my customers at TissueCon?

TissueCon includes many opportunities to network such as lunches, coffee breaks, committee meetings, and receptions. In addition, the TissueCon Trade Fair/Exhibit features the industry’s leading global suppliers, new start-up companies, universities, associations, and media organizations. Hospitality receptions and lunches are held in the trade fair area, as well as a New Technology Showcase where you can present a short commercial presentation to attendees. It is recommended that you promote your company’s presence at TissueCon in advance to maximize the number of contacts you make. 


How are speakers selected?

The TissueCon program is assembled by a Technical Program Committee comprised of TAPPI members from around the world. They are industry professionals in each subject area and employ a rigorous selection and peer review process to ensure that the presentations are of the highest quality, non-commercial, and of utmost relevance and value to the industry.

All presentations and proceedings are reviewed and must comply with TAPPI’s Antitrust Policy and most presentations and proceedings (excluding the New Technology Showcase) must comply with TAPPI's Commercialism Guidelines


What sessions can I attend?

The TissueCon program is open; full registrants may attend any session at any time, regardless of the topic area.


Must I register for the conference to attend committee meetings?

No, but you still need to register for 'committee meetings only.' Committee meetings are open -- anyone may attend unless indicated “by invitation only.” TAPPI Committee meetings are an excellent way to meet colleagues and network in your area of expertise while contributing to the growth of the industry. By allowing participants to pass on the knowledge they've gained, we feel committee meetings are one of the best ways to give back. 


How do I obtain a Visa?

You must register for the conference before being eligible for a Visa letter. For more details about obtaining a Visa to attend TissueCon, please review the TAPPI guidelines. 


How old is TissueCon?

Created in 2017, the event 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. TAPPI and Fastmarkets RISI join together once again to offer tissue producers and tissue converters the only industry-focused event featuring both technical and market/business outlook content. Add to that exhibits from some of Tissue’s best known and most respected suppliers and you have 2019’s “must attend” industry event.
